Nice sized campground sites with water but no power. Plenty of grass, basic facilities which is reflected by the price. It is more than adequate for a stop over for travellers. Friendly place which filled quite rapidly from early afternoon and was packed by evening. A rather large campfire was setup behind the bar in the evening and was the... More

Pretty basic but reasonably grassy sites. it is also friendly and well priced. The evening entertainment will bring out the country and western fan hidden inside you - whether you know it is there or not.

This a great little place there is only water and no power but the place is nice and peaceful and no matter what time you get there they will always fit you in somewhere. We stayed an extra night instead of just overnight and went for a walk in to "Mt Banka " bit of a goat track but the... More

Grassy and shaded sites, friendly owners and clean facilities. Great value, with a nightly camp fire and live music. Ticks a lot of boxes! Would definitely recommend and stay again if in the area. Facilities to clean your car if you wish for a small fee.

What a great spot, unfortunately we were travelling on motorbikes and were not carrying much in the way of supplies so were unable to stay however the lovely lady owner happily gave us a 2ltr bottle of chilled water from her fridge that we drank on the spot and also a 2ltr bottle of frozen water to take with us....

Green grass, the first for a while, wonderful and very informative greeting when we pulled in. Lots of water that is from a spring, so no problems with calcium, can wash your car for a dollar, wash the car and van for two dollars. Ablutions are older, but very clean and great water pressure. The Happy Hour around the fire... More

We spent one night here recently and thought it was wonderful! The campsites are shady and green and the facilities very well kept. We managed to do a couple of loads of washing and made the most of the clothes lines to dry our clothes! The pub is a fun place to gather at night and chat around the fire!
