Spacious property, lots of trees and great campfire area. The communal toilet was quite fancy and well kept. Sunrise on top of the hill was spectacular. The curious cows in the adjacent field were very cute. Campsites are well spaced out. Hosts were warm and welcoming. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our time on Stewart and Gayle’s property. The property was lovely and surround by beautiful scenery. A short walk and we had the most amazing view of the night sky. The campsites were well signed and kept. The nicest camping toilet I have ever used!
The kids also enjoyed the near by creek :)

A more beautiful tract of land and camping experience you would be hard pressed to find. A stunning property nestled in the heart of the King Valley region, an absolute gem. My kids and I had exactly the camping experience we had hoped for. A welcoming vibe, a beautiful property, clean spacious campsite with a 100 metres or more between sites, nice fire pit and wood on hand, thoughtful 'enjoyable' toilet facilities, well sign-posted and all on a spectacular 300 acre property with views for miles. Thank you Stewart and Gayle for your hospitality and bringing back a serene camping experience for those who truly value their privacy and quiet enjoyment of the land. We will be back :)

Hosts were very friendly and responsive. Nice campsites with clean toilet facility and running water (and a sink) at a central point. Great location in the King Valley. Beautiful birds and cows came to visit.

We loved camping on Stewart and Gale’s property! Despite it being high 30s weather for the entirely of the trip, we were able to stay cool and relaxed under the big trees and with glorious swims in the waterhole. They were happy to give directions to another waterhole close by, as well as other recommendations in the area. They were flexible and east going with changing numbers (thanks covid) and were super friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in any season.

Thornbridge Camping was brilliant! Beautiful spot, toilet facilities were great, and there was firewood ready to go for us when we arrived! Gayle and Stewart were awesome to deal with and were very accommodating. Had a great trip! :)

This is our second stay at Stewart and Gayle's. Fantastic location and site. The sites are safe, secure and away from the crowd's so a peaceful relaxing time is guaranteed. The new "Throne Room" (Toilet) is a fantastic addition. Plenty of fire wood to collect on the property. We will be back again. Thanks again Stewart and Gayle.

Great property that was lush and green when we visited. With the road in a little challenging for some, make it nice and secure.
