We stayed at 10 campgrounds in the NT and this was by far the most expensive (A$50/night) and one of our least favourite. Our powered site was uneven, poorly lit and without anywhere comfortable to set up a table and chairs. The pool was nice and big but needed a clean, and the amenities were not cleaned to the standard...

I wasn't staying here, but inquired at reception about their helicopter ride as the place I was staying helicopters was out of service and I planned to leave the next morning. The lady at the desk asked for my room number, and I explained I wasn't staying there. She could have given up, but instead she persisted talking to a...

Having spent the last year on the road I think your campsite has just won the prize of shabbiest and least cared for site in Australia. And just to qualify that we had just come up the guts from a station with nothing in the middle of the desert (that was amazing), maintenance was not a word it was a...

Really enjoyed staying here, the tents were pretty decent. The bathrooms were surprisingly nice for the outback! And the stars at night were UNREAL. Would recommend staying here if doing Kings Canyon hike

During march there was ample space to camp. The grass to pitch on had a good majority coverage but watch the bindi's. The layout of this campground was awesome in that it had multiple of everything (toilet blocks, barbecues, kitchens) so you never had to walk more than 20m to get what you need, AND it all generally surrounded the...

The best is, that you've got a lovely view at the sunset from the hotel. Don't miss that. We've got a room with a shared bathroom. The bathroom was clean and so far ok. But the room looked like a prisoncell, it was extremly unfriendly and tiny. We could hardly place our suitcases on the floor...

We stayed here for one night in our camper van after completing the Meerenie Loop. It's just ok. There are a lot of lights during the night so you don't get very good star views. When we arrived we were told we could pick any camp spot. The one we picked didn't have the power turned on so we had...

Dear Webwalla Sorry to read your comments but this review does need some clarifications. We have 70 powered sites , of which during this time of year with less travellers , you can pick any one of the 70! You would have picked the site you chose for yourselves. I am certain you also could have moved to any site...

The stunning view was ruined by a row of en suite units. The toilets were filthy,grassy areas unkempt and we tried 3 barbecues before finding one that worked. The ant infestation was so extreme the ants got into a sealed tent. Lovely location and few other choices for campers so they have a captive custom base. There is no excuse...

King's Canyon Resort - campground I stayed at King's Canyon campground on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st January 2017. I had stayed here previously (about 7 years ago) I loved the location and although the facilities were older they were well maintained . However, on this occasion I felt the facilities fell sort of the standard I would expect for the following reasons:...

It cost more to camp at Kings Canyon than at Yulara with less facilities. The pool was nice but food choices were limited and pricey. This is definitely a spot to self cater if you are camping. Because we were travelling off season there was very little on offer. The canyon walk was great and we'll worth doing but the...
