This is camping at its best. Beautiful scenery, private campsites, lovely and challenging walks, and amazing hosts. The toilet and shower were super clean and perfectly placed. This was our first time camping as a family with young children and hosts Jason and Jacinta went out of their way to make it a fantastic trip. We can’t thank them enough, it was a truly amazing camping adventure. Highly recommend if you want something scenic and quiet.

Response from Jason, the Host, on July 23rd, 2022

Thank-you for your lovely feedback Starla. I'm so glad you survived your first camping trip with young children, as it can be very tiring. We suggest camping with another family with children as well, so they can occupy each other at times to give you a well-deserved rest! We'd love to see you all again!

Wow. What an awesome place this is. Jason and his family have done a great job setting this property up for campers looking for a quiet getaway with huge camp sites spread well apart to make you feel you're the only ones there. We were in Big Fig camp 1 which is well shaded and right beside a rocky creek. The property has great hiking trails to hidden caves. Not an easy hike but worth it if you make it up. A huge waterfall that would normally be visited by heaps of tourists, but its inaccessible by any other means. So you get it all to yourself. It was only a trickle while we were there but in full flow would be stunning. Fire pits on all sites with fire wood available from Jason.
We will be back for sure.

This is a large secluded & shaded camp-site on a beautiful property with a small seasonal creek beside it. The amenities are a short walk away and are exceptionally clean. There are other campsites on the property but all are a good distance apart. The property is well sign posted with lots to explore. Jason was very friendly & helpful leading up to & throughout our stay. Thank you to the Cooke Family for sharing Hopevale. We look forward to coming back soon

A great camp spot! Big Fig was well maintained and a had a lovely part of the creek running beside it. Private and plenty of space. A beautiful property with beautiful bush walks. The waterfall is well worth the hike through the rocky creek and forest. Jason was such a great dude so lovely and helpful! The amenities are also very clean and well kept and the hot shower is actually beautiful! Just a tip don’t camp too close to the fig tree because a few bats came in the night and were dropping the fruits on our camper, but no biggie we just moved slightly closer to the beautiful creek!

So glad you had a wonderful time Helen. Your pics are superb and we really appreciate you sharing them so we can highlight what we have here. The fig birds and possums enjoy the figs when fruiting and our micro-bats enjoy the insects the flowers attract so it's a win-win! We're grateful you have such a positive and practical approach to nature's cycles!

Hopevale is a beautiful property. There are several walks to waterfalls, up hills and even a cave if you are really fit. The camp sites are well spaced, private and flat.
