We had a great time despite the weather. Camp site is quite large with great fire pit. It’s well worth the money to buy the fire wood good value. Owner was very nice. I forgot to bring fire lighters and with one msg I walked up to the house and got some. There would be wonderful views in clear weather we just got very unlucky. Will definitely return when we can.

We stayed here for our first try at free camping in our van and camping with our dog. Very picturesque setting with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Hosts are great with a seamless process for arrivals and departures. Would highly recommend. We’ll certainly be back.

Apart from the initial meet and greet; we didn't see the hosts at all. The site was easy to access and provides 270 degree views west across the range. Although the weather was less than ideal for our stay it did provide for some spectacular sunsets.

Old Peppertree was the perfect spot for our very busy family of 5 to take a break. Regina was a wonderful host. Met us on arrival and everything was ready for us.
The location is absolutely stunning. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Regina and Karl

We had a very relaxing time in a great location. The site was absolutely clean and tidy and the fire pit, whilst having a few too many rocks surrounding it, was great for sitting near admiring the stars. The host was accommodating and easy to deal with but the gate could do with some sort of a sign so you know where to turn off! We will be back.
