Easy to access site, magic spot and private. Host Larrisa is very friendly, even contacted us on weather conditions as heavy rain was expected. Highly recommend.

Beautiful camp site overlooking the Clarence, all grass with plenty of room as you're the only one's there. Beach area to launch kayaks. Definitely need a 4WD to access, mainly if damp or raining for one short section just before camp site. Definitely be back.

Larissa was an amazing host, providing easy communication and direction on how to get to the site but also provided us with some additional while your here info which was amazing and we look forward to using it on a longer stay
It is an amazing location and was so nice to have a private space on the river, well just us and the cows and the lone horse that walked amongst them.
Got my workout walking down to the river and back but totally worth it
The site is described exactly as advertised so if you are camping (ie can't level it out) be prepared as the site is lumpy and bumpy
I am torn giving the site a thumbs up simply as I fear it will be harder for me to book in again

What a magical place. Great swimming, great scenery and wonderful location. Peaceful piece of paradise not to far from Grafton and at the doorstep of Copmanhurst. After a few days cooking on the camp fire we decided to walk 1km to the pub for dinner. We will return to this property for sure. Host was awesome and kept in touch with us prior to arriving due to covid, sms us on arrival and then on our departure to wish us safe travels. 10 out of 10.

Such a beautiful spot, right on the river!!! The site was very private and well looked after. We absolutely loved it. Had a few swims, chatted to some cows and watched an eagle circle right over us. Awesome spot for the paddle boards and sunset (and sunrise) views were epic! Definitely recommend, definitely coming back. A few March flies around but the hosts had left hard core bug repellent out for us, so they weren’t a problem!

Epic paddle spot- we only stayed one night so didn’t have enough time to explore fully but what we saw was beautiful SunriseHacketts Haven - 4WD onlyShallow water with a gentle current- great for an early morning dip

We parked our camper trailer up on the banks of the Clarence River and enjoyed the panoramic views and the quiet seclusion - only [pleasantly] interrupted by the very friendly and inquisitive cows. Could not have asked for a better experience. Plenty of things to do - day trips to Grafton/Maclean/Yamba/Broomes Head - and the Clarence Gorge - as well as canoeing down the Clarence River. Mix it with the locals and other travelers at the Rest Hotel just 800m through the paddocks from the campsite.
