Samson Creek - Jackson
This place is wonderful
Samson Creek was awesome in so many ways. The reservation was smooth and easy. Easy to follow correct directions were supplied and the road in was very well maintained. As a Darwin local I am so happy to have found this gem. All the camp sites are well maintained and arranged and the ablution facilities were top notch. The hosts were wonderful and it was obvious they have a deep love and connection to their property. I even noticed that the suggested improvements in previous reviews had been taken on board and actioned. The only thing I’m not sure of is if I should tell everyone I know how great this place is or keep it too myself. Thanks so much, we will be back for sure. 10 out of 10 legends!!!!

Bush Camping
Beautiful spot for an escape to the bush. We really felt alone and secluded but safe. The land was welcoming and looked after us with visits from owls, amazing birds and a baby salty crossing the weir on our way in.. It’s really what top end camping is about. 25 mins to Crab Claw Island for a beer, and 25mins to a swim at Berry Springs on the way there and on the way home. My only gripe being we couldn’t stay a week. We’ll definitely be back - it’s pretty special here. We chose Jackson’s which was perfect for two of us. We swagged it this time, but could easily have brought the camper trailer and set up with nice flat ground and plenty of turning space. Thanks for sharing your place with us Aisla.

Samson Creek - Treetops
The amenities were clean and worked well, and the hot shower was nice. The wildlife and bush surrounds were beautiful, and it was a short drive from town, making it a great place to get away for a weekend. The only issue was with the Treetops site. While it is a great site, we found it to be very uneven, which made it difficult to setup our camp. Overall, it was a great spot, and we will be back!

Samson Creek - Jackson
Large and private site
What a spot! You can tell the owners have put a lot of time and effort into setting this place up. Lots of attention to detail in everything, walking paths cleared throughout, signage for the sites etc. Sites are all fairly private, we stayed at “Jackson” which had heaps of room for the camper trailer and paths leading down to the creek. Good location with lots of nearby places for day trips. Hosts were lovely.

We Stayed at Samson creek for probably the 5th time. We absolutely love it there! The bush shower and toilet are second to none! And you really get the sense that you have the whole place to yourself. We will be back soon

Samson Creek - Bush
We camped at the treetops site and it was beautiful, Aisla was very welcoming, there was a fantastic amenities block close by, and campsite was nice and secluded away from other camps. Firepit was wonderful and we fit two families together in the campsite. Nice and shady too 😁
