This is s review based on the camping side of kings canyon not the lodges. Me and my fiancée have just finished driving down through the middle of Australia, and having stayed at a fair few cheap and expensive camp sites this would not be one to recommend! Upon arrival we walked into the reception and thought wow, how clean... More

With associated resorts such as Lizard Heron Islands and the Kimberlies we did have high expectations. $50 for 2 on a powered site, yes it is a remote location but would only rate as 1 star anywhere else. Place needs to be maintained and given a good clean, maybe a new manager who has the drive to make something of... More

I stayed in budget cabins for $129 a nite. Be prepared they r very old . If the resort simply upgraded the ancient grubby fridge & left a cloth/soap to wipe down food preparation area maybe there would not be so many ants in the cabin. They don't bite but give u a scare in bed @ nite crawling over... More

Nice check in, nice drive to our spot on site, parked up to find the toilets very messy. Then at night the lights were left on in the male toilets the result was zillions of moths and some larger flying insects flying in, and I mean zillions. One light has a small swarm flying around it as the protective cover... More

We stayed here just for the 1 night and are glad it was just for 1 night. Our actual camping spot was fab, at the back so looked out over the canyon and close to the facilities. The spot was spacious and we had a bit of shade so all good. We used the pool as it was so hot... More

We had a campervan and stayed two nights, three would have been better but we ran out of time. we saw the sunset and had a drink at the sunset bar, a great idea. Every detail has been well thought out but a bit more shade by the pool would be great. The walking trail around the canyon is fantastic.... More

We paid $40 for an unpowered site only to be told to find your own spot somewhere on a very very crowded, patch of dirt with no shade on the edge of the camping ground. Never have we been so close to our neighbours, we were very lucky that all were nice people and we ended up sharing a few... More

Had an unpowered site. Liked the flexibility of choosing site. Chose a grassy spot close to pool, playground and amenities. All good - one suggestion, a few more BBQs. However thought overall that there were good facilities, especially liked the sunset viewing platform with a bar. So close to Kings Canyon, got up early to do rim walk then back... More
