The overall appearance of this place is marred by people not using garbage bins and litter lying around under greenery. More garbage bins would help I'm sure. We stayed in the Lodge. We were not informed at the time of booking and paying that there wasn't a bathroom. When we arrived we could upgrade to a bathroom for $60! That's...

We stayed 2 nights, fantastic pool area with green grass to spread the towels on and chill. Gorgeous view of Kings Canyon from the campground especially at sunset. The Thirsty dingo bar was a nice evening hangout to play pool with the kids and have a drink. The duty manager Adam upon arrival and later general questions, was amazing so...

We stayed here for a few nights and was good to be able to have the comforts of home again after some time in swags out bush. Prices were high but considering your location die expect to pay that much for things. Watch out for dingos at night going through your camp don't leave any rubbish or food around or...

We camped here for two nights and found the place had all we needed. Great view of the mountains if you get the back row of sites. Prices nearly the same for powered / unpowered site so go powered. Not cheap but good facilities. Plenty of bathroom complexes as they cater for groups of kids. Pool and green areas great....

We arrived late (6.30) and without a booking so were grateful to get a powered site. The receptionist was efficient but emotionless, and was lacking in the welcoming small town friendliness we had experienced in other towns. After settling ourselves in we headed to the store to obtain supplies, only to find it had closed minutes before. So we went...

The staff at Kings Canyon were efficient and most helpful. I couldn't have been happier. The camp grounds have a relaxed, unrushed feel and we loved it. Fantastic views over the range with a sunset viewing deck! Our site was large with plenty of space for our large van and the amenities were clean and tidy.

The setting of the campground was very nice. A sunset viewing platform where they served evening beer and wine was very nice. The bathrooms were not maintained or serviced adequately. Internet service was not available, despite the claims of service. The BBQ area with live music was quite nice with a good selection of food and drinks. The price for...

We had a lovely shady site for our motorhome, sites were flat, roads laid out well, pool cold but kids loved it, but unfortunately the toilet block E was dirty and all the blocks need upgrading.

Caravan park was absolutely packed. Most expensive fuel around $1.97 a litre. Campsite was dirt in the bush. Amenities were acceptable. Glad there was a door in to stop the dingos going in, but it needs a clean. Nor much of a camp kitchen. Extremely expensive for alcohol, don't even bother.
