Lovely place, but a bit noisy.

The hosts were lovely, and we loved the puppies. The place is pretty and looks like the photos. The shelter is awesome and very well equipped and the hot shower, sink and toilet also great as are the landscaped steps to the river. The only downside is that there’s a busy rd close which was loud at night and speedboats all day down the river so not really quiet.

Great camp spot!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, despite the rain. The undercover area with the fireplace was excellent in keeping us warm and dry! The pizza oven was awesome, easy to use and we made some seriously good pizzas!! The bathroom facilities were great (toilet, sink and a hot shower).

Relaxing spot right on the river with great facilities (the fridge/freezer was a fave). Great communication with Megan the owner.

We had a wonderful 3 days with our families. The property is in a fabulous location on the river. We were a large group and all fitted comfortably in the under covered communal area for meals. Fireplace, bbq & pizza oven were great. Bathroom facilities were good. Lots of birds and lovely sunsets. Thank you Megan.

Good camp spot with undercover area (in case of rain) with fireplace, pizza oven, fridge, large table and fire pits. Good (hot!) shower, toilet and sink facilities (river water). Just enough facilities to enjoy the basics of camping but some little luxuries to make it special (pizza oven and fridge). There is a bit of noise from the boats and the cars on the highway on the other side of the river but easily drowned out and didn’t bother us. Grassy and flat spots to hitch the tents and far away from the main property to ensure privacy. Don’t forget to bring your camping chairs, pots, pans, utensils and camping essentials. Thanks for having us Megan!

Down by the Hawkesbury is a great place to get away with friends and nice to have the place all to yourselves. The area is good for camping with terraced flat areas and the camp kitchen is a real bonus with a huge table and ten chairs, a pizza oven and a large fire place to sit around in the evenings.
