We thought you might be interested to hear what others have said about their experience at Emerald Escape Camping.
Which is why we created a feedback survey we ask all campers to please fill out after they leave our property.
Lot of thanks to those campers who have been kind enough to do so, and we hope it gives you a bit more of an idea about camping with us.
We also ask everyone to share their pictures and at the bottom of this page you can find those.

|Brenton||Better than most||Place was fantastic, the Big dam is picturesque and the kids loved swimming and kayaking. The day use area looks fantastic and we really hope I can help to organise an event in the future with FNQ’S Mr Buckaroonie.||Fantastic service.||Clean and unique.||A fair price|
|Kylie||Better than most||Fantastic location – close to Cairns to get away for a quick weekend.||All communication was great. We were very thankful to be able to arrive a bit earlier in the day||Toilets were all good!||A fair price|
|Terence Purkiss||Better than most||Great spot, beautiful!||Great communication thank you, although the emails are a little intimidating on first sight; lots of words and rules!||Clean and easy||Good value for money|
|Lea||The best I ever had||Great escape. Privacy assured. I am impressed by your environmental outlook. Keep up the great work.||Communication good. Booking availability on website could be simplified.||Very clean, enviromental friendly.||Good value for money|
|anonymous||Better than most||3 kids and I liked it straight away. Clean and 100 percent privacy.||Fast enough and kind response. You canâ€™t do better than that.||Impressive. The best outside toilet in QLD.
Clean and easy.
|Anne and Gunnar||Less than average||What a disappointment. You charge 30 Dollars for two people and all you get is privacy and a toilet (a rubbish bin). No running water. No rubbish bin (apart from the toilet). No shower. NOTHING. You charge a caravan park price and provide a bush camp at the lowest possible level. Do not get us wrong. We do know what to expect when going bush but why do we pay the same price as for an average caravan park? For the dried-out lake which would be a health hazard just using the water for washing dishes? Or the countless rules people must follow just get 100 Dollar deposit back? Your booking process is overly complicated with endless forms and rules. We still thought to give a shot to be positive and booked a night with you in October 2020. Never again. How greedy can you be?
[OUR COMMENT: not everyone can be pleased or values privacy. With 14 sites @$30/ week we would be broke, not greedy]
|You ask for a 100 Dollar deposit within 24 hours but you give yourself 3+ days before returning it.||Clean for bush toilets.||Way too expensive|

The emailing process for booking was quick and easy||Unique and took some getting use to||Good value for money|

Good signage around the property for directions.

|anonymous||Better than most||Excellent place to camp, beautiful scenery, lovely drive in, enjoyed the 4wd tracks but not too bumpy. Love how there was a day area lake as this is the first property I have camped on that had things to see other than camp spots. Would love the option to drive to emerald creek falls picnic area as we wanted to take eskies for lunch and bottles ect for our baby however, we did enjoy the adventure walking across the creek.||Excellent, communication and booking.

Toilet was inhabited by a family of wasps, but the werenâ€™t to bothered by us.
|A fair price|
|anonymous||Better than most||Great. Easy to find. Beautiful. Quiet. Serene. Clean.||For a business, contact is more suitable during business hours, not at nighttime. Also, the pressure to provide screen shots of payments was a little bit heavy. Surely bank accounts can be checked at your end to confirm payment received.||Very stinky but bush camping is bush camping and it was better than digging a hole.||A fair price|
|Darrell||Average||Very private||Good||Very good||Rather pricey|
|Carah||Better than most||The property was beautiful and very diverse with flora and fauna. A great escape close to home.||Communication was very prompt||Certainly unique!! As we were fully self contained we didnâ€™t need to use them.||A fair price|
|Elyse||Better than most||We always love camping at Emerald Escape!! Listening to some dingos howling at night, spending the night spotlighting the wildlife and day trips to the falls to enjoy the freshest of water. All so close it can be a quick weekend trip, couldnt ask for any more!||Always very easy to communicate with. Quick and easy.||Great. Super appreciated. And definitely unique. I loved the branches used to frame the toilet blocks.||A fair price|
|Tracey||Better than most||It was everything we hoped for. Natural, quite and a great learning and time-out experience for the kids.||Fantastic communication and very friendly.||It was clean and clear from insects and was 100% better than digging a hole in the ground. I felt safe when using it due to the raised platform and I liked the scenery.||Good value for money|
|Trent||The best I ever had||We really enjoyed the peaceful privacy and natural surroundings. The crystal clear creek was very refreshing and we are looking forward to our next visit.

|Vee||Better than most||Beautiful property. Really enjoyable weekend activity and lovely area.||Really good||Clean, a little on the nose but I’ve used to worse, maybe previous users didn’t fully get the concept of the lime and straw?
Would be a bit concerned with only 2 toilets if there were 150 people at this particular camp
|A fair price|
|Jodie||Better than most||Camping at Emerald Creek was a great experience. The property is really well maintained with the camping spots and day use area kept immaculate. We had a great time camping with the peace and quiet amongst the scrub on the creek, wildlife and all. Disappointed there was only minimum water but that isn’t everyones fault, that is nature and the weather!! Enjoyed the drives in the 4wd with everything marked perfectly, and no getting lost.
Had a great time and would recommend to other people.
|Customer service was amazing. The staff interaction was great giving us ideas of what we could do to fill in our days with walking tracks and places to see.||The toilets were a great idea. Never seen that before but they were nice and clean and well maintained.||A fair price|

|Lisa O’Mara||Better than most||Absolutely loved it… so peaceful and private and cool to camp at this time of year.

|Chris||Better than most||We did not explore too far from the campsite but the directions to get to our camp were clear and easy to follow.||Quick replies to emails. Very friendly.||They were clean and easy to use.||A fair price|
|anonymous||Better than most||We loved the location (not too far from Cairns) and the privacy of the property. Really felt like a nice escape from the day to day and something different to the usual campsite options. I was also pleasantly surprised by the toilet ‘facilities’ at the day use area and our campsite.
We were hoping to do some catch and release (barbless) fishing but upon arrival didn’t find the lake was suitable for shore-side fishing due to all the plant life in the water snagging the fishing line. This was a shame for us. I am sure, if we had a kayak or a platform that goes out further into the lake, fishing away from the shore of the lake would have been good.
|Good. Available over phone and email and friendly.||Good and clean. Easy to use.||A fair price|
|anonymous||Better than most||Great location
|Customer service was all good
|All ok||A fair price|
|Mark||Better than most||I can highly recommend camping at Emerald Escape for those that like bush camping but only have a short time to get away.

|Catherine||Average||Great size, roads in good condition and can see it’s looked after. Beautiful bushland.||Great communication.||Horrible. Full. not enough lime or sawdust to last us the time we were there. Lots of flies for how full it was. One of our guests had to try and compact it to make more room to use.||Good value for money|
|jeshneel||The best I ever had||It was amazing. Peaceful quite, serene.||Two thumbs up! Absolute delight!||Clean, easy to use. No issues.||A fair price|

|anonymous||Better than most||Stunning property with an amazing creek.||Awesome||clean, easy to use. we needed extra sawdust. One of the toilet bins was leaking and got a bit smelly||A fair price|
|Sarah||The best I ever had||Fantastic set up, 3rd visit now in a matter of months and love it each time||Excellent, love the on line booking, simple straight forward and always processed with ease||Love the toilets, didnâ€™t think a pit toilet could ever be considered a luxury but to have your own is perfect, wish more sites could take this approach||Good value for money|
|Todd||Better than most||Very beautiful secluded camping in lovely nature with lots of privacy.||Excellent service.||Quirky but amazingly odour free.||A fair price|
|anonymous||Better than most||We loved our stay. Site was clean and the overall environment including the creek was pristine. Loved the privacy of the site. Liked the close proximity of the property to Cairns, makes it an easy weekend trip.||Very impressed with your customer service. The website was very clear and user friendly, correspondence to confirm booking, payment and refund was prompt, courteous and detailed. The most professional privately owned camping site booking system we have used.||Very clean, really appreciated that it didnâ€™t smell. Ample space inside the cubicle. Great design idea with the wheelie bin rather than a hole in the ground.||Rather pricey|
|Lea||Better than most||Lovely little, private piece of paradise. Set in good old Aussie bushland. Campfire overlooking a cute Dam. Loads of birds singing happy songs.||Prompt, polite service.||Interesting. Glad to see environmentally friendly recycling. Clean and easy to use.

|Brian||Average||Good setup, easy access, close to Cairns.
There is room to develop more campsites close to Creeks while still maintaining privacy.
|The communication via emails was very good. All instructions and directions were clear and easy to follow.||The women thought the toilets needed an upgrade.||A fair price|
|Tammie||Better than most||Beautiful property and feels remote and quite wild, even though it’s only 10 minutes drive to the excellent cafe at Jacques’ and Mareeba just 15 minutes away. The large lagoon is just magic and we loved sightings of birds of prey, jacanas with babies, herons and cormorants, as well as a couple of local bandicoots that came to visit each night.||Quick and thorough||Clean, easy||Good value for money|
|anonymous||Better than most||Close to Cairns
Limited camping on a large area
|All great …. thankyou||Clean and tidy as expected||A fair price|
|Paula||Better than most||Property was brilliant||Fast and explanatory||Clean, not smelly and easy to use||Rather pricey|
|Alison||Better than most||This place is incredible. We felt so lucky to have been able to experience camping like this. It is rare these days to be able to stay at a site where you don’t see or hear other people the whole time. All we heard was the sound of water and birds.||Excellent. Svargo was very kind and so was the care-taker man who we drove past on our way out.||Very clever and clean. A delightful view! 🙂||Good value for money|
|anonymous||Better than most||Excellent. Lots to do. Would go back in a heartbeat.||Excellent. Amazingly prompt and helpful.||Absolutely fine and appropriate.||Rather pricey|

|anonymous||Better than most||A beautiful and tranquil property- a little piece of paradise being preserved in all the right ways.||Very quick and clear communications. I appreciate the detail in all your communications. Booking page is a little difficult first time but gets easier with use.||The best camping toilet I have ever used||Good value for money|
|Sarah||The best I ever had||A fantastic location – feels like you are in the middle of no where and yet only 1.5hrs away from home and located between two national parks. Incredible set up , respects privacy and the land. Now our number 1 favourite location. A truly magical spot and cant wait to come back.||Excellent – quick responses. Met the team on site by chance and were really friendly and knowledgeable of the land.||Have to say brilliant. Perfect set up – I was apprehensive (have to admit as not a fully fledged bush camper with no facilities) and they were excellent. Clean and tidy, incredibly no smell and easy to “use”. Fair play to the set up and keeps the sites clean and prevents the use of the bush for #2’s!||Good value for money|
|Erin||Better than most||It is a beautiful property.||Customer service is very efficient.||The toilet was great, one of our highlights! Lovely to sit up in the tree tops and watch the birds.||A fair price|
|anonymous||Better than most||A great quiet getaway that’s close to Cairns. The property is very well maintained and I particularly like that there’s only 6 camp sites that are well placed around the property to ensure privacy.||Great! Very responsive.||Clean and straight forward.||A fair price|
|anonymous||Better than most||We loved the peace and quiet of the property and how we felt so remote but it was so accessible.||Excellent communication!||It was an experience! The children didnt like them much ha ha||A fair price|
|Katrina||Better than most||The country was lush and green and the whole property was looking beatiful. The billabong we camped on was full and teeming with bird life. The big lake had amazing day use facilities. Emerald creek was crystal clean and flowing well.||Communication and email replies has been prompt, friendly and pratical with advice. I meet some of your staff whom were mowing and they were very considerate and friendly.||A luxury for a seasoned bush camper.||A fair price|
|Jasmine||The best I ever had||We camped at site 2 and even though it rained the whole time we were there it was still a fantastic site to stay at. That huge deck and shelter saved us for the weekend. So private and quite didnâ€™t see anyone else which was amazing and one of the reasons why you go camping. Such beautiful landscape and surroundings. Would definitely come back to camp again. Hopefully next time when itâ€™s not raining so we can do some swimming in the lovely creek||The communication was absolutely fantastic. Everything and anything we needed or changed we had a reply within hours.||The toilets were something we have never used before but one of the cleanest toilets we have used. So easy to use and very clean||Good value for money|
|Matt Palka||Better than most||Spacious, mostly untouched natural setting, easy to get around, Great bush camping||No issues||Unique, clean, easy to use||Good value for money|
|Phil Harris||The best I ever had||Fantastic get-away for a few days, only 50 kms drive from Cairns CBD. Really like the fact that the sites are very well spaced from each other, don’t even know anyone else is around!||Very good communications with email and sms||see above message||Good value for money|
|anonymous||Average||The property was beautiful and very private. We didnâ€™t see anybody during our 30 hour stay.||Very quick to respond to emails!!!||Ick… used our own. Too many flies||Way too expensive|
|carl natton||Better than most||Easy to navigate around, plenty of concise clear signs. well maintained facilities. Site 3 had a good sized level camping spot next to the dam.

|Taylor||The best I ever had||Beautiful, relaxing camping ground that suited up to 20 guests. The stunning creek running behind camp 5 was a great cool off area to enjoy. Will definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway.||Excellent||Unique||Good value for money|
|Bev||Better than most||The property is mindfully maintained natural bushland.
Camp sites have been set up with minimal impact on the surroundings.
Entry roads are well maintained.
Directional signage is good and the camping guidelines are clear and precise.
I feel the property displays that a great deal of forethought went into how campers would impact on the natural environment. The collection and reuse of toilet waste indicates sensitivity to the nearby water source and thoughtful reuse of an unavoidable human by-product.
Email response friendly, rapid and concise.
Access and directions to camp sites comprehensive and clear.
|Definitely unique, I was expecting a pit in the ground!
The sensitivity of collection so close to a water course is well thought out, and the concept of composting the waste for use on a separate part of the property demonstrates responsible care for the environment, and business sense.
|Cheap for what is offered|
|Lynsey||Better than most||Camped at camp 2. Great spot with easy access to a beautiful creek amd amazing under cover areas.
The falls were easy to access from this site.
|Quick respinse to emails and rext messages. Thanks||Very clean and not smelly!

|Caitlin||Better than most||We absolutely loved the property. We stayed at camp site 6 and it was perfect size for a couple to have a weekend getaway.
We loved the level of privacy and canâ€™t wait to come back and try out the other campsites.
|Replies to emails were always prompt.
Instructions and expectations were clear from the beginning.
|Easy and clean. (Although there was a paper wasp nest in ours!)||A fair price|
|Jackson||Better than most||Very nice property. Good use of space to separate camp sites to give feeling of privacy and not overcrowd. Easy to navigate within property due to good signage and directions in the booking email.||My experience was very good. We booked last-minute (the same day) and Svargo was very helpful and went out of his way to make our booking immediately.||Very good considering the type. They were clean and did not smell, although we only stayed one night with two people. I noticed some of the sites capable of hosting very large groups (up to 150) also only have one toilet which could be a problem||Good value for money|
|Karin||Better than most||Fantastic property. You can see all the work that has gone into making this a great camping spot. It was very private and peaceful. Great to explore as well.||Very responsive and easy to communicate with.||Loo with a view! Good setup.||Good value for money|

|Paul||Better than most||Peaceful
|Fantastic||Good..||A fair price|
|Yvonne||Better than most||It is a beautiful place with abundant birdlife, spotted quoll and bandicoots. The river was bracingly cold but crystal clear and very picturesque. We enjoyed the walk up to the falls as well as the drive and walk at the large dam.||Great!||Clean, easy to use and definitely unique!||Good value for money|
|Maree||Better than most||What a naturally beautiful campground. We spent four nights here as a large family group and had an absolute ball. The roof top A frame was a saviour to avoiding the rain. The creek, the walks, and the positive attitude if the owners were all bonuses!! Even the bush loo was well manitained! Thanks so much for all of your hard work.. it shows!! Oh.. amd we saw a quoll too!!||5 stars!||Excellent!||A fair price|
|Angie & Phil||Better than most||Just what we have been looking for, 5000 peaceful acres and only 50km from where we live in Redlynch! We found ourselves whispering in the campsite as it was incredibly quite with just birdsong in the background.||Excellent communication, very clear and detailed website, prompt and efficient booking experience.||Unique idea with the wheelie bin container, ours looked a little bit ‘full’ and there could possibly be a bit more distance between the seat and the ‘product’ as with a traditional long drop toilet setup…||Good value for money|
|anonymous||Better than most||Great place to unwind and relax. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.||Excellent||All 3 above||Good value for money|
|Renee||Better than most||Expansive but accessible, rolling hills to cool clear creeks||Excellent||Clean, easy to use, & in a building style that suits the surrounds||A fair price|
|Elyse Fitzpatrick||Better than most||Absolutely loved it. It was clean, spacious and very private. Camp 6 was awesome. We had a view of a storm rolling in, trees to hang the hammock in and lots of wood for the fire. Maybe a couple of branches could be cleared to increase the view but its the bush so that barely registered as an issue. The loo with a view was clean. The picnic creek was beautiful water to swim in aswell. Looking forward to trying some of the other camp sites out. It depends what you look for in a camp site but we love the bush, so this was perfect!||Super fast, very polite and very informative. A++||All of those things. Well supplied with lime and sawdust. Clean, easy to use and definitely unique. We had a loo with a view and it was great.||Good value for money|
|Michael||Better than most||Lots of space privacy and tranquility.||All good.||The proverbial aussie dunny. But not smelly with an awesome view.||Good value for money|
|Paul Spencer||Less than average||The property is nicely situated close to Cairns offering the real Bush Camping Experience. Located between Davies Creek and Emerald Falls is great for those who can hike to the waters of these two beautiful places.
Emerald Escape does offer privacy which one would not get at other places but does comes at a price. The area is dry but does have a few dams and a creek which are not good for swimming unfortunately.
|I only had two problems with your Customer Service in having to remind you to return my deposit.
Plus I was accused of using timber in the fire pit larger than the pit itself. I only burnt wood that was bought in a 25kg bag bought from Bunnings plus the left over wood left in the pit. I would recommend to all Campers to take a picture of the site as one leaves it for proof. When I did mention this to you guys about the Timber I burnt I received no response. Left a sour taste !!!
Otherwise all other communication was excellent.
|I have made response to the toilets above for the Ladies.||Way too expensive|
|Rebecca||Better than most||Property was well kept. The A-frame was very useful and made our camping experience more comfortable. The toilet was clean and well maintained (not stinky at all). It was great having the extra chairs provided at the site as some of us did not have camping chairs. The day use area at the lake was incredible and the use of kayaks and kite boards was very thoughtful and enhanced our experience!||Really happy with responds times of emails and friendly nature of Svargo’s emails.||The toilet was a nice experience. It was clean and pleasant to use. We had no complaints about the toilet. The lime really worked to kill the smell.||Good value for money|
