Wonderful !
We loved the peaceful, beautiful ambience of Base Camp. Steve & Alana are very friendly, welcoming, sharing their space, knowledge & keeping a very clean, well stocked place. The drive in is narrow, but able to be done in a 6m campervan. Abundant wildlife, birds, flora & stars!

Although a challenge to get to in our motor home, this place is a hidden gem. Alana and Steve were great hosts and own an amazing property. They provide top quality service, are very friendly as well as other fellow campers on site. If you are in Tasmania near here, I highly recommend taking the time to stay here.

Base Camp - Bunkhouse Room
The dorm was lovely- so cosy on a cold night. Amazing facilities and location, would definitely come back just to hang around in a hammock and read.

Best camping experience ever!!!
Hands down, the best camp experience ever!!! After extensively travelling Australia over the last 35 years by road when on holiday and camping the majority of these times, this is by far the best camping experiencing I have ever had, full stop! The owners, Steve and Alana are welcoming, knowledgeable and very helpful...nothing is too much for them... The facilities are impeccable and to a very high standard with Steve welcoming and embracing any feedback to improve his guests experience... You could literally turn up with a little bit of food and have a magical camping experience as the camp kitchen has everything you might possibly need to prepare and cook your food. There is a deck attached with large bbq and bench table to sit at from which you can admire and absorb the impressive view of the neighboring mountain range through the large surrounding Eucalypt canopy... Two large fridge/freezers provide ample space for all your goodies to be stored at the right temperature. There is a third similar sized fridge/ freezer in the adjacent amenities with two free washing machines and dryers!!! The variety of wildlife is abundant and the level campground, nestled amongst the towering Eucalypts is impressive. Exhilarating yet peaceful at the same time. If you sit there and listen to the wind in the canopy taking in all that nature has to offer in this magical place...she might just give you a brief glimpse of her breathing...the natural order to life... Simply...just go...live.!

Great camping facilities. Very clean communal area and bathrooms. I've never been someone who has been turned off by a long-drop toilet. But if you are, fear not! These are the cleanest long drop and shower facilities I have ever experienced. The hosts are lovely!!! And, to top it all off, we really loved the nightly native wildlife.
