We stayed at the station as part of a tour booking and we were very impressed with the facilities. We stayed in a swag for the evening and everyone had a great time. Unfortunately, when we arrived we had signed up to do quad biking and signed our lives away on the piece of paper as required. When we got... More

We stayed 2 nights at the station & so pleased we did. The staff were friendly & informative. Spent a lovely afternoon on the verandah of the cafe/restaurant/bar watching the sun go down over the hill in fiery reds, purples, pinks sipping on a glass of wine & beers talking to the working hands on the station. There is no... More

If you are going to stay here, definitely ask for a more remote camping spot in the grounds.... We live on a farm in country South Australia and expected proper 'station camping'. When we arrived we quickly realised that we were in the busiest part of what felt like a caravan park. Upon looking around later, realised that there are... More

Unlike nearly EVERY other campground in Australia Kings Creek has placed space between the camp sites. We can't quite figure out why such a large and beautiful country squeezes campers together - frequently just a couple meters between caravan, tent etc. So good on ya Kings Creek! Had a nice stay, enjoyed sunset at Tank Hill, and a pretty good... More

The front staff were very friendly and helpful and the site was OK, BUT all we got was a patch of dirt and a cold shower. Even this would have been acceptable if the prices of sites, fuel etc not been so outrageous. I understand that due to their isolation the cost of necessities must be higher but I think... More

A caravan/camping area that is a great location close to kings Canyon. However be aware that you must be prepared to pay $40++ per night for an ablution block with 3 dirty showers, 3 dirty toilets and a very sub standard camp kitchen.

Stayed in a safari cabin which @ $90 per person per night t Seems expensive. But I guess we have to realise the place is a long long way from anywhere. Staff were friendly and obliging. Cabin was adequate. A steel frame with a canvas cover. Comfortable single beds. A heater and fan. Ablutions were clean. Breakfast was included and... More

$180 for a powered tent with 2 single beds is a rip off. Showers and toilets are old. No paper towels in ladies toilets and was told would be rectified immediately by reception. Never did arrive!! No camel rides as advertised which was one reason for our visit. Helicopter pilots were great. About the only good thing there.

Stayed one night while visiting Kings Canyon. Wish it was longer. Unlike other reviewers we loved the tent (we like camping). Great communal kitchen and fridge. Clean and tidy shower block and toilets. Friendly staff. Good food. Awesome breakfast. Yes it is pricey but it is remote. Yes it is somewhat Spartan but it is huge outback, what do you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ian and Lyn Conway established Kings Creek Station in 1981. The station lies 36 kilometres from the magnificent Kings Canyon (Watarrka) and is set amongst majestic desert oaks. Kings Creek Station is a working cattle/camel station with facilities for camping, accommodation and an opportunity to experience the outback either by quad (4 wheel motorbike), helicopter or camel. Basic supplies, meals and drinks can be bought at the station shop. You could even try one of our famous Kings Creek camel burgers!!!! The station is the largest exporter of wild camels in Australia and sells camels for live export, live domestic sales and meat. 37 documentaries have been filmed at Kings Creek and the station hosted Australian Geographics' fourth expedition. In 2001 the world famous Australian Safari travelled through and stayed at the station. Kings Creek Station has also been featured on 7 Sunrise Weather hosted by Grant Denyer in 2012. ... more   less
