Rossville Retreat Bush Camping
Great peaceful location, super friendly hosts. Away from the hustle and bustle of Airlie Beach but a short trip into town to do any activities needed. It was only a short stop over but would camp there again for sure..many thanks

A paradise and wonderful experience
This is a little gem and I am almost reluctant to share my experience as I selfishly want to keep this magical place to only a few! Fantastic bush, a lovely creek to swim in and the opportunity to experience, quiet, peace ,security and the most wonderful sky with its abundant stars at night. Definitely worth a visit and we will be back

Rossville Retreat Bush Camping
This is such a lovely, peaceful spot in the bush by the river. We had a walk and swim downstream after the rapids, we went fishing off the banks and it was so lovely to have the place to ourselves! Dave was super friendly, easy going and showed us round the property on arrival. It’s sooo much nicer than being at a busy caravan park! Thanks heaps!

A hidden gem . Must do
Absolute hidden gem , we stayed two nights on our way to the tip . We were given a tour of the best swimming and fishing spots and set up camp right on the river with wood already collected and stacked ready to go . The experience was great very relaxing with nobody around just the sound of the birds and the morning visit from a scrub turkey . Only minutes from lions den so we were able to go for dinner but return avoid the packed and noisy camp that comes with it . Very friendly owners that couldnt be more helpfull . We will be back

Was the best experience host sandy communicated back very quickly.on arrival was met by Dave down to earth guy nothing was a problem gave us guided tour and told us we could camp virtually anywhere we wanted. So camped right in middle of unused airstrip very well manicured one at that .went fishing in river and caught some beautiful fish very quickly.late checkout wasn’t a problem.watch this camp in future big plans.
