Great site. Lots of space. If in a motorhome, you need bikes to get to the Gorge walks, as to far to walk. Kangaroo's are very friendly!

Beautiful location close to gorge bushwalking. Clean hot showers, laundry, powered and unpowered sites. Communal campfires with wood provided. Good shop with ice, food etc. Bar from 3to 6pm. We had no phone reception but wifi was available on the deck next to shop.

Great location and great facilities. Both powered and unpowered sites, cabins and other options. Staff were friendly and helpful and there is a small shop for any little bits and pieces you might need. Highly recommended as a base camp for your Carnarvon Gorge adventures!
