Great spot, close to town if you need anything but it feels miles away.
Cameron’s a great host, directions to the land and site were straight forward.
We camped with some friends who hadn’t camped off grid before and having the drop toilet was very “convenient”.
We will back.

Wonderful stay. Private, just us, beautiful green surroundings, small creek for the dog to play in and a fire heated bath under the stars. A little shed outdoor dining and fireplaces. The host was great, good communication. Loved our stay, would recommend!

Beautiful land and great hospitality. My son and I really enjoyed exploring the creek looking for rocks, sent a few golf balls to space and had a marshmallow desert.
Good classic bush camping.

We set up our camper on level east to access hand land that over looked Sandy Creek that snaked through the property. Fabulous views across the grazing pastures. Great ammenities as described for you use if required. Great area to explore and experience the bush lifestyle, only 45min from Brisbane, fantastic attractions with in a stones throw throughout the Somerset district. Great four days away from it all.

I couldn't have ask 4 more 🤩 I was looking for tranquility, & this place has it hands down!!
Fantastic communication with Cameron prior to arriving.
The creek was magic to sit in with a couple of Cruisers to escape the heat. I can't wait to return.
& as a solo woman camper, I at all times felt perfectly safe ❤

It was a beautiful relaxing and quiet place to stay. There is an area already set out for a camp fire and seats that really give you that camping feeling. There is a covered area that can be used and is a great spot to sit when a storm comes through to watch the lightening. The owner is very lovely and happy to help if you need anything. When we arrived there was a lovely bunch of native flowers on the table with a note and marshmallows. Thank you for allowing us to stay on your property. We will definitely be back.

These hosts are AMAZING! so friendly and welcoming and went out of their way for us. we got the eggs as an add-on for Breakfast and they were absolutely delicious! The site itself is clear and flat with plenty of shade and is everything you could possibly want. our only regret was that we didn't stay longer! but we will definitely be back.
This spot is so close to everything and yet is a peaceful getaway for the relaxed camper.
