Great place to stay. Very friendly hostess, most welcoming. Superb facilities, very clean and tidy. Sites are generous, grounds are well manicured. Loved swimming in the river. Website says it all. Cant wait to come back.

Fantastic place to stop by! Incredibly clean facilities (both kitchen and bathrooms/shower). The laundry facilities are coin operated and are fantastic. The owner is incredibly nice and helpful. We tented close to the river - plenty of room and lovely soft and flat grass. There are quite a lot of sand flies but the the kitchen/dining area is a cosy escape! The gold coin donation for some fresh vegetables from her garden - or 50c per free range egg - is a lovely touch! River had a great swimming hole area too. We will definitely be back when passing through!

Bit disappointed after the amazing reviews of this place. The communal areas were fairly average, kitchen had everything you needed, but the bathroom was full of mosquitos and sand flies both in the evening and the morning. Having a shower with them was less than appealing and the water pressure was not very strong.
Quite a flat greeting from the owner too, made for a disappointing stay.
Overall fine, just not as incredible as reviews lead you to believe.

Beautiful surroundings - well maintained. So spacious and quiet.
Facilities were excellent and very clean. We loved having a meal in the kitchen with the fire going. An added bonus was the fresh herbs available.
Highly recommend this campsite.

Lovely, well cared for surroundings, excellent washing facilities, beautiful scenery, fabulous swimming holes. Even a kitchen and large seating area/ verandah that is completely screened against mozzies and sandflies. Can’t speak highly enough of this place which caters for all types of travellers.

Lovely place, everything you need. Friendly hosts, nearly perfect amenities, as someone else said, a shelf/rack in the shower would be nice.

Would not recommend if you are allergic to bees, there are hundreds if not thousands of them. They pretty much leave you alone, but if you knew you were allergic it would be terrifying.

This place is fantastic. As soon as we pulled in there was friendly wave and reassurance we would be given assistance soon. The site is large and gives everyone enough space. it sits on the edge of two lovely swimming spots by the river and also has books to read to pass the time. We felt instantly relaxed as we set up here.
