Stay out in the sticks! This area is our own personal nature reserve, a piece of the bush at the edge of our small but functioning hobby farm where we focus on rare breeds and regenerative farming methods. Just walking distance from the beautiful Kuitpo Forest and a short drive to the many wineries of McLaren Vale, the southern beaches and the Epicurious wonders of the Fleurieu Peninsula. 

 Sample upon request the fresh produce in season from the orchard and veggie gardens of Della Foresta Farm. 

A flush toilet is available on site and picnic tables and we are adding a non-potable water supply.  Fires can be lit between May and November and firewood will be provided (typically we will supply a pile sufficient for one evening at a price of $10). You are also welcome to bring your own firewood. If you are looking for a weekend of riding in the forest we can consider paddock agistment of horses upon request. 

We have 3 very slightly sloping sites cleared for tents or vans far enough apart that privacy can be retained. 

Pets are welcome but must be under control at all times to protect the resident wildlife and stock on our farm and neigbouring farms.

What a wonderful place to camp and so close to Adelaide.
We booked site 3 that easily accommodated two setups and is the closest to the very clean toilet which in itself is a huge bonus. The site was immaculate, and the owners very thoughtfully erected a gazebo for us to use that was very much appreciated along with a table and a couple of stools. This site definitely has the best fire pit in my opinion and we were able to purchase good quality wood for the entire weekend.
Such lovely surroundings and this will now become out for-to when we want a quick weekend away.
Thanks so much!

Josie’s place is lovely, we went to give our new van a test run and also take our dog away with up for the first time. This little piece of paradise has 5 campsites in a fenced off area under trees, portaloo on site, water for washing dishes (not drinking), fire pits for each site, firewood supplied at an extra cost, lovely hosts, most helpful in every way. We will definitely be back.

Lovely spot. Nice and quiet and great to have the spot to ourselves and a couple of other groups.
The rooster does crow early tho!
The ‘cebu’ cows were nice to watch.

Great place for walks to kuitpo nearby.
Josie was very lovely and provided wonderful facilities:
-with the toilet. Awesome!
- fire pits and options to buy wood.
- thoughtful surprises like the table and stools. Very helpful.
-there was some potable water available for dishes if needed (tho we brought enough with us).
Thanks Josie :)

Awesome! review Melinda. Thank you very much for your generosity in giving Della Foresta Farm Reserve very positive reviews and leaving some cash because you were very pleased with what we have prepared for you. You are very kind :-). If one day you happen to come back during summer I will show you our semi-sustainable farm and for sure we will give you free range grain-fed chook eggs. Regards, Josie

A beautiful little spot with clear directions and easy to locate. It was lovely to have firewood readily available if needed and the fire pit already set up with kindling ready to go.

The campsite was prepared well from the good size fire pits/fire starting materials, a nice clean toilet and washing up water. We’ll worth a stay
