The creek side farm setting with grazing cattle make it a beautiful & peaceful location. Convenience is not far away with the Crabbes Creek village general store a few kilometres away.
The toilets & shower facilities were clean & well maintained.
I will definitely be back!

Fabulous quiet spot just off the highway but in the country. Had the place to myself under the stars for a night as passing through. Very private and outdoor shower was a nice touch. Would definitely stop at Nick’s if passing again. Telstra service not available at camp but a short walk up the hill (1 minute away) there was service to make calls. Thanks nick!

Amazing site, with the beautiful creek right at your campsite. We were on site 2. The serenity was fabulous, the cows didn't care about you. Domonique who is Nick's brother came and said Hi to us which was great. This way we could find out more about the Crabbs Creek area and the going ons. There is a beautiful little General Store 3 minutes away with everything you ever need, especially beer and wine :-) We live near Tweed Heads, and this is a fantastic little 30 minute get away from the hussel and Bussel of town life. Only 3 campsites which makes it extremely pleasant. We will definitely be coming back.

What a little Gem! If your looking for somewhere to relax, unwind and get back to the basics this is it. Loved the simplicity of camping next to the river and the beautiful sounds nature and water flowing. The outdoor shower was amazing gazing up at the stars… Nick was very responsive and easy to communicate with.He was so kind to throw in a bag of firewood for our group to enjoy. Will be coming back again! Thanks Nick!!!
