Nice little place to stop off. The owner was lovely and welcoming. Rankers said pets allowed however the owner said no dogs. Luckily we could let our dogs sleep in the van. Amenities were simple. We booked a room and it provided shelter for the night - very noisy with people next door though (could hear every word and movement)

Awesome campsite, the owner is super friendly and makes you feel at home. Shower is clean hot and powerful for only $2 for 5 minutes. Campsite itself is peaceful in the green hills with a couple of gravel parking sites for larger campers. Wifi was fast and didn't drop out at all, even better it is completely free.

Very nice farm area in the middle of nowhere. Peace and quiet! Nice, friendly owner when checked in. Seemed to be inexpensive at first for the two of us, $10 pp plus $10 for powered site. Once you include the pay showers (now $2/5 minutes), this quickly became the same price as many of the Holiday parks. Decently clean showers and toilet. As stated, kitchen has a microwave. Close to Nugget Point Lighthouse for those stunning sunrise photos.

Beautiful area, rolling green hills with friendly animals. Good sized kitchen with microwave and toaster, room for groups. Free unlimited wifi, amazing! Really friendly owner, absolutely lovely bloke. Super cute friendly cat! Best $2 shower I've ever had! (6 mins compared to 2 mins usually offered by campsites!) All in all, wish we could stay fkreber.

Great place, surrounded by sheep and cows, lots of space and clean facilities. Very quiet in the night and for all this just 10$/pp plus a very friendly owner! We loved it!

Initially we thought this was a 10 out of 10. It was only 10pp for the night, had all the facilities we needed including a 2 dollar shower, accepted EFTPOS, had limited free WiFi and was well maintained. Unfortunately just after checking in we heard someone in the office (either a customer or the owner) scream at someone "DONT TELL ME TO LISTEN YOU F**"ING N***ER". We were so shocked by the profanity and racism that it completely tainted our experience.
