This typical village has lots of day-time visitors. Nice walk around, that's about it. Misfat old house looks like an ok place to stay, but they didn't even let us have a cup of tea without reservations.

Is there anywhere to camp near Misfat, or should we just spend a few hours looking around and then head up to Jebel Shams? We are big group of 6 families so we would need a lot of space!

4-Wheel drive is not required as others were already pointed out. A regular car is fine. You should be a bit more careful as the road is a bit steep and narrow. It's manageable.
