The Oval campsite is a very large flat area that can accommodate large family groups, offroad RVs, caravans and camper trailers.  It is nestled within our privately owned nature reserve.  The entire site is booked so you aren't sharing the area with strangers.  

Campfires are allowed. Campers can BYO firewood or purchase firewood in Extras.

Friendly dogs that won't harm wildlife or other dogs are allowed off leash.

This is fully off grid camping, so campers must bring all water, camp toilets, power and must take all waste (including toilet waste) home again.

The property backs on to the D'Aguilar National Park, with a horse/hiking trail up to Kluver's Lookout. Our crystal clear creek runs most of the year and great for paddling feet in to cool off.  

Somerset dam is only a 45 minute drive away for water sports and other fun.

Children 2 years and younger are free.

4WD only.

Very quite and peaceful. Creeks we're flowing and birds chirping. Kookaburra right on time, 6.00 am. Nice place to rewind.

Great for privacy, not the view

We certainly had great privacy at this one, the hosts were welcoming and the creek nearby is absolutely pristine, but the site itself is essentially a bulldozed clearing in the middle of a large lantana patch.

If you love lantana, then ok, but it is not for me.

We loved our camp spot, very private and big. It was awesome camping so close to a creek with lots to explore and crystal clear water. The owners were so lovely, greeted us on our first day and supplied the best fire wood. They also brought us some more wood as the other lot got rained on. They supplied us with an axe and brought us some mosquito repellent too, as we forgot ours, absolute life savers! Highly recommend!

Secluded camping site in forest setting with creek nearby makes an excellent break from city living. Plenty of free firewood and we ticked the option for the site portaloo which was clean and worked well.

Perfect weekend away! The drive in with the caravan was adventurous thanks to some shallow creek crossings. The property is exactly what you’d expect from a nature reserve. Nothing but sounds of the running creek, birds, frogs and cicadas. The Oval site is reasonably flat and open with a nice fire pit. Tiz (one of the owners) was a great host. No mobile phone reception so you can truly relax. The creek was perfect for plopping a camp chair in it and keeping the toes cool. A few small yabbies in the creek (catch and release only, good fun for the kids). Will definitely be back!

It was so peaceful and nature was at its finest. We even saw fire flys and the stars at night was so so beautiful. The camp sites are very private and it’s a lovely property with a creek that the dogs and us loved. There is even fresh water crayfish and fish.
