|Angie & Phil||5||Privacy was great, nicely situated next to the dam with good balance of cleared area and tree cover.||medium-tent||Unfortunately we arrived with heavy rain falling and had to make a quick decision on tent and gazebo position, there didn’t appear to be a designated fire-pit so we made our own in a suitable position for our setup.||3_better-than-most|
|Paul||5||Very private||large-tent||Good.. small space for tent and kitchen set up||4_average|
|Nigel||5||Positive things – Very secluded, private and the dam is a bonus for attracting wildlife. Toilet and waste water pit were adequate. The site has a nice outlook.
Negative things – Ground is fairly compacted making it hard to peg tents down and not that even over much of the site. Very tight to turn and park vehicles if you have more than two (we had three).
|large-tent,medium-tent||Site 3 could be improved by clearing just a little more ground so that there is a proper turning circle near the toilets. If the footprint was enlarged slightly it would mean that tents are not being assembled on the edge of the road which is highly compacted from vehicles and hard to peg tents down. Would have minimal environmental impact on a property of this size but would enhance the camping experience.
Would suggest a designated fire pit as various locations have been used in the past. This will also make the site safer in the dry season from fires escaping. Would also recommend adding the directions to sites to your website or as a minimum to the bottom of the Invoice as we initially went to the Emerald Creek Falls side of the property.
OUR COMMENT: There is a designated fire pit now, we will create some extra space soon, directions are always in email sent after payment is received.
|Bev||5||I give 5 out of 5 star rating for camp site No 3.
It is very private and set above a small dam. The site is quiet, with an abundance of bird life in the surrounding trees, the dam encourages native animals and birds to visit.
|small-camper,swag||Site 3 was a perfect for our setup of small van and swag. It would also suit a slightly larger van and/or a tent or two.
The site is very level, and clear of impediments to the ease of moving around the site.
|James||5||It could do with opening up as it was a squeeze to get a camp set up with a tree in the middle of the open ground , solar showers even if they were central to all the sites would be awesome , loved the 4×4 track to the creeks , this is awesome and will keep people coming back ,||medium-trailer||As above||4_average|
|carl natton||5||Very private, peaceful and relaxing, even with two kids, the dam attracted a lot of birds and I think Wallaroos, especially at night. The eldest daughter spent a lot of time spotlighting and found one big mouse spider. We didn’t`t swim in the dam as the water level was low and the water looked a bit murky so we went to the big lake and the creek to cool off. Plenty of dead wood lying around on the ground for a fire. Good level site. The table and chairs provided proved very useful too.||medium-tent||Perfect, enough room for the tent and a pergola under which we set up the camp kitchen.||3_better-than-most|
