Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We styed here for four nights in a caravan. The sites were large and spacious, all the usual amenities and more than enough room for a tent for the son. Facilities in great condition, excellent camp kitchen and Wood Fired Pizza's were some of the best we have had - and that's saying something. Great atmosphere and the place was rocking during the Matilda's World Cup game.

Wonderful campsite right on the beach. Staff were super friendly and able to recommend things to do. On-site bar served great pizzas and the pina colada was top notch too. 5 min drive to cape trib beach and we regularly ran to the beach in the morning. Toilets and showers were very basic and probably could’ve been cleaned more regularly but worth the compromise for everything else. You’re able to have a bbq/ fire on the beach and there is also a communal fire pit for guests to use in the evening. A perfect campsite if you want to completely relax and feel like you’re on holiday.

In what was really wet weather in June, we were fortunate to be able to stay at Cape Trib Camping for 3 nights. Has a great cafe/bar and does wood fired pizzas from 5pm. The people are friendly and helpful, and it was just a great atmosphere! Right on the beach, for lovely walks, and close to everything in Cape Trib.

This is one of the most special spots we camped at on our 6 week trip around Queensland. Water view sites, power, water, wood fire pizza/coffee onsite, good facilities, family friendly, and close to natural attractions. We will definitely be back. Loved our time here

Stayed for two short nights but could easily have stayed longer! Cape trib camping provides you with the perfect spot to relax between the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree rainforest. With fires allowed on the beach, our afternoons were spent watching the colours of the sky fade. The camp has everything you could need with clean amenities, the camp sites back on to the trees adding a layer of privacy which you wouldn't get at other camps or caravan parks. We will be back one day

When trying to book a camp site for 2 sites for 2 nights there was no issue. Plenty of room. UNTIL I mentioned I was travelling with my accreditated assistance dog. Was told to take my pet elsewhere. I did not have a pet, I had an assistance animal with all the rights of a guide dog. A dog that provides balance for me to be able to walk among other things. An animal that has never been an issue even to the strictest National Parks officer. She requested a copy of her licence via email. This was sent as well as the relevent Federal legislation she then sent a reply saying we are full which was quite obviously a lie as she was willing to take the booking before being given the courtesy of being told an assistance dog was accompanying me. She deprived me of the chance to stay in the rainforest and the experience. She has illegally denied me the family camping experience on Cape Tribulation. Nasty and narrow minded with no respect for the law or disabled people is how I would describe this person running it.

Great place to stay! Campsites are among the trees so this makes it feel a little more private. Where we were we had our own beach access path from our unpowered site. Your also able to have campfires on the beach which was a great experience! The Palms around grow coconuts which you can harvest and snack on, this was a fun activity with friends. Only downside, we had friends tell us about their amazing woodfired pizzas and when we went their kitchen was closed and no longer doing wood fired pizzas and cocktails. Overall our stay here was a great memorable one, would recommend!

A group of 7 of us booked here for 2 nights up in the Daintree: · The location is perfect – our campsite was 1 minute walk from the beach and a 400m walk through the campsite lead to an estuary with a great fishing area. We spotted a large croc on the other side of the bank which was exciting. The campsite is also close to Mason’s Café (where you can get a bite to eat and swim in creek) and the Cape Tribulation General Store · Price was $22 a night and well worth it given the amenities on offer. There are multipe toilet blocks, rubbish bins everywhere, hot showers (fantastic after our long hike up to Mt Sorrow), and a large cooking/barbeque area with full kitchen facilities. You can camp not far away at Noah beach for $5 if money is an issue, but there you get a drop toilet and that is it. · The campsite is quiet after 10pm. We were told to be quiet not long after even though on a scale of 1 to 10 our noise level was about a 5 (bear this in mind if you want to be up late drinking and playing cards!) · The campsites are a good size – we booked 4 sites between us (43,44,45 & 46) and we had that corner of the campground to ourselves which allowed for privacy. We stayed at Safari Lodge Campground around the same time last year and found the sites there far too small by comparison (this was much better). · There is a restaurant Sandbar Wood-fired Pizza & Bar but it closed on the 30th July for the remainder of the 2021 season · You are allowed campfires on the beach, otherwise there is a communal campfire close to the main reception area. We unfortunately skipped the fire as it was too windy and ended up raining the night we stayed · Beware of the potholes on the dirt road leading in – they are some of the deepest and widest potholes I’ve seen – hopefully these are filled in sometime soon by management as they are horrid

Just did 3 nights on a powered site here and it was fabulous! The camp site backs onto the myall beach and it was beautiful! It's not far from town where there is a few restaurants around and there is a shop and swimming hole basically across the road to the left called masons along with a bottlo. There was a creek near the camp site that had a e metre crocodile swimming around which was amazing to see. About a 5 minute walk away. Green ants everywhere but what would u expect in this beautiful part of the world! Camp kitchen facilities were great with a fridge, BBQ, stove, stove kettle Nd sink with some jnder cover tables. Only thing which I would say needs updating are the bathrooms, they are a bit basic and quite old but all the same very clean indeed. Fires allowed on the beach= amazing and the communal fire in the middle of the site was a nice touch. Only thing was that the bar was only open one night and then shut for the other 2 nights I was there...not sure why. Overall I would highly recommend this beautiful camp site.
