Had a great couple days at Mena Creek, although we experienced huge amounts of rain while we were there it did not spoil the very nice property there and Sarah went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and dry! Will definitely be seeing us again!

We were amazed by the beauty of this place, green paddocks, cows & horses, and Mena creek peacefully running beside our campsite. A perfect spot to relax.

Great spot and Sarah and family are great people and very accommodating. The creek is great and we had fun paddling through the rapids with kayaks. Lots to do. Plenty of space for kids to run around. Camp sites are well spaced to allow people their own space. Will definitely be back.

Lovely spot to spend a couple of nights with the kids and our dogs. They loved the cows and horses that visited our site. The creek was great to cool off. Loved having our own campfire so we could cook a delicious roast pork in the camp oven. Sarah's hospitality was second to none.

Awesome area right on the creek bank. Plenty of animals roaming around to keep the kids amused. Host was friendly and very accommodating, we couldn't have asked for more.

We had a great time camping, had the place to ourselves. Beautiful property with running creeks and a safe swimming hole. It was close to all the local attractions that we wanted to visit as well. Sarah came to the rescue with a generator for hire when we had battery issues with our camper. Would definitely visit again.
