Natrual slice of serenity!

We were looking for a private little slice of sereniry to enjoy a couple of days and we loved our stay at Charlie's place in Kuitpo. The site is a perfect little spot for a tent set amongst the protecion of the pines. Quite reasonable winds didnt bother us at all as the trees blocked it almost completely. We were able to layout at night star gazing no problem.

Its definitely a tent only spot as described and best suited to a medium sized tent and maybe a gazebo for cooking. That will give options of where you set up. That said we had a huge 3 room tent and gazebo and still managed to make it work easily enough. Note though that the site is a natural landscape and not a flattened out caravan park so picking the right spot to avoid tree roots etc is essential. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and will likely be back in the new year for another visit!!

Great secluded site, having wood supplied is a definite plus. Kids loved exploring the pine forest and spotting a couple of kangaroos.

We had an amazing time at this camp site and would highly recommend. Both Charlie and Cara were such genuine, friendly and welcoming hosts, and the property was so peaceful and beautiful with the sounds of the birds and the breeze through the pine trees. The kids loved exploring the camp area and we all felt so relaxed sitting by the fire, with plenty of wood provided. We will definitely be back for some more nature therapy.

It's very good. You can relax in the lush forest, the sound of birds, and the spacious but cozy space.

Highly recommend this stay, a beautiful spot by the fire onlooking thick forestation with some kangaroos here and there. So peaceful, can't wait to go back again. Charlie has a wonderful property he so kindly shares that every camper needs to experience, not to mention provided wood and fire lighting equipment. Overall he Is a fantastic host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

good private little camp spot . great to have toilet and firewood on hand . very quiet and peaceful . only cons - coming from B34 highway , completely missed knotts hill rd sign (almost impossible to see) . campsite needs some work to smooth out an area for tent campers ( most uncomfortable ground I've tried to sleep on ) other than that , all good.
