Our Equine Camp is able to accomodate 20 people comfortably and is within walking distance of our amenities. There are four fenced horse yards with access to water, plus stablemates could be housed together in larger yards, or make up extra hot-fence yards if needed. Please note, you can also book this camp even if you don't have horses as it's great for large gatherings.

Respectfully we are family friendly camping and do not accept party groups.

Guests staying at this site are welcome to bring their horses with them. Horses are an additional $10 per horse and can be added under our 'extras' section at the time of booking.

Adults are $15 per person, children 16 and under are $10 per person and kids 4 and under stay for free.

Hopevale borders State and National Reserves, with access to numerous self-directed walks/rides just beyond the gate. Alternatively, just stay put and enjoy the natural beauty and seclusion of Hopevale and its surrounds.

Campfires are welcome in the fire drums provided and you can pre-purchase your fire wood via the extras section when making your booking.

Pets are welcome but they must be kept on a leash at all times whilst on the property. Please ensure you clean up after your pets and leave the site as you found it.

Absolutely fantastic! Jason is very friendly and helpful host. All individual camp sites were large, private and well maintained with clean amenities. My daughter loved meeting wild deer, wallaby, cows and friendly horse!
Thank you Jason, we definitely come back soon.

Wow 🤩 Stunning Stunning place with incredible majestic Mountains in the backyard , waterfalls, Swimming holes, creeks, Rocks, Boulders and ancient forest. Real Paradise.

We stayed at Equine Site, which had the most amazing scenery and views. Fire site with rustic seats and bundles of firewood just added to magical experience. Toilet and Hot shower was great surprise.

Jason was really lovely, extremely helpful and excited about creating this beautiful, tranquil space. Thanks Jason for providing us with tons of firewood to last all night.

We did some amazing walks to the waterfalls, swimming hole and big rock. Lots of happy cows and horses moving freely in the mystical land.

We are very new to camping and Jason’s incredible land made me fall in love with sleeping under the stars.

We will be back 🌞🌈🌞

Tool some friends camping to Hopevale Adventure Camp last weekend. Despite all the recent rain Jason has all the camp areas mowed and walking tracks re-marked. The camping area (Equine) looked great and well maintained with log seats and a fire pit. We met Jason & Jacinta who were lovely people and extremely helpful. From the camp site we had wonderful views of the mountains surrounding up. The whole area look fantastic plus we did a couple of really cool walks.

Equine is a great group site. We had 4 trailers and a tent and still heaps of space. Great views of the mountain and very peaceful. Jason is creating a wonderful campground with all of his sites well thought out and all offering something different to the others.

Absolutely beautiful property with fantastic comfortable campsites and beautiful scenery. Great walks throughout the property as well as 4wd tracks around for those with capable vehicles. Good facilities with a clean and well upkept toilet and bathroom with shower, mirror and sink.

Plenty of space between the separate campsites on the property while still all being close to the facilities.

Jason's hospitality was wonderful, and I'm looking forward to the improvements that he has planned! We'll definitely be back.

With a few hours of clear skies on our weekend the stars really came out. Beautiful sceneryFun to be had even with the rain looming. Equine Camp
