I would 100% come back and camp here. I took my dog and my intention was to sit and relax with limited people exposure and that is exactly what I did here. Nice toilet and shower when I needed, the tank pool was oh so refreshing many times during the hot day. A day trip to Wyndham was a real suprise.
Spots are shady, hosts are lovely, property dog Rosie is a sweety.
I cant find a thing I didn't love about Hairy Dog camp spot. 10/10 for camping.
If you fish with a boat this is an ace spot too.

We enjoyed our stay very much. There are 5 big sites that would suit a van or a tent. Great welcome, feeling of inclusion and over-all we really enjoyed our stay. Jane is a great host and you HAVE to get onto the Ord..... what a magnificent waterway and thanks to Mic who was a great fishing guide. Thank you and highly recommended.

The hosts were very welcoming and kind, we got a great camp spot with shade for our tent and fire pits that can be moved about. Sunsets are unreal. Rosie the dog is also a highlight and I think our lab/kelpie thought so too! Access to warm showers between 5-7pm, amenities are simple, clean & tidy and lots of cute little green frogs everywhere to keep ya company while you shower :) loved our stay here, would recommend to friends/fam and definitely would visit again!

Such a great stay. Relaxing and quiet for four nights. Awesome hot showers. Hosts were very welcoming and we all (us and two kids, 4 and 6) really enjoyed the scenic tour on the Ord. Heaps of crocs! Great base for exploring the area. Highly recommend it. Will be back when the kids are older for a crack at the barramundi. The fishing tours looked fabulous. Stay here!

Jane and Greg are champions! Camping with shade, showers and the beautiful Ord river at your feet. We camped for 6 nights, fire cooking and exploring the area. We went on a full day charter (with Hairy dog tours) with Jimmy driving the tour, he was friendly and found nice shady fishing spots where possible! We caught great fish, saw amazing bird life and heaps and heaps of crocs!! Highly recommend this team of people and the location.
