Camping facilities are purposely rustic, affording guests an authentic back to basics experience.

A microwave oven, toaster, jug and stainless steel sink as well as power point outlets for phone charging are provided. Limited cold tank water only available at the sink, so please bring your own drinking water if possible.

The owner has constructed 90% of the entire project, recycling most of the materials used. The camp area has 10 powered sites plus 10 unpowered sites, but can accommodate multiple self-contained units as required. A 2-berth onsite caravan is also available for hire. Fully approved septic toilets and bush (canvas bags) showers are installed. Pets welcome.
