Really great to have our own dedicated part of the river - Ian and his partner were lovely. Recommend to anyone who wants a beautiful and private get away - Make sure you bring your mossie coils/thermacell if you're next to the river! Thank you!

Great campsite. Ian and Michelle very friendly and helpful. Almost lost the caravan to a bushfire on the property, but Ian did a great job keeping our van safe.

Great secluded spot. Lots of room to spread out, easily fit multiple campers, and the pooches had a blast!! Will definitely return!

Ian, Michelle and their family were wonderful hosts! I had a small gathering of friends for my birthday and we enjoyed being off the grid and away from others. Ian and Michelle were extremely welcoming and very helpful. We just need a better wet to keep the creek flowing! Thanks for having us.
