Coodlie Park was a great place place to stay for $10 a night bush camping. There are many private areas fashioned into several cul-de-sacs, all with an elevated, roofed platform for swags and your own fire place. The camp kitchen was really interesting, made with recycled timbers from the water front-all covered in shells and barnacles, running water, plenty of... More

We found the accomodation 2 hours before we arrived. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The cabin was clean with a full kitchen. The bed was really comfy and had a good view out to the stars. We would have loved to have stayed an extra night but we had to get back to Adelaide after a long weekend... More

We stayed 3 glorious days and nights.... For $10 night, it is a bush camp..... Didn't need to shower and the toilet was adequate for the isolated bush surroundings and the cheap cost. We drove to Venus Bay, to the Talia Caves and to the private beach. All quiet and enjoyable. If passing we would certainly stay again.

Coodlie Park was a great place to stay. This is a 3000 (approximately) station on the Eyre Peninsula and the camp ground is about 1 kilometer from the homestead. It has no power but the camp facilities and toilet are unique. It's very quiet but very picturesque with trees and grass. Access to Cape Labatt where there is a colony... More

Only stayed one night but its a top spot! Discovered it in a camps book, cost $10 per vehicle per night [worth it]. Was made welcome by Hassie, didn't have time to explore beach or surrounds. Found a good position in the camping area and was able to source wood for a fire. Don't be put off by the faded... More

Didn't know what to expect as we travelled to the Bush Camp site. What a unique surprise with a happy welcome, our basic needs covered including the fun bucket showers, heaps of camping space, nice bush walks and a great base for local sightseeing. Looking forward to returning and will happily recommend.

We stayed here for three nights in our camper trailer. Our two boys aged 9 and 11 loved the swag huts and the bucket showers (they now want to build one of these at homes).

I admit, I'm a little biased as I've known Hassi through his tour company, 'Nullarbor traveller' for a number of years but to travel here & be a part of his world has showed me a different side & explains a lot about the person he is & the passion he has for wanting to share his world with everyone!...

I stayed in the bush camp area. Plenty of room for any sized rig. The area maintains a real bush camp feel however you have toilet, showers, camp kitchen. I suppose it is like a bush van park. Much cheaper than a van park. Much better than SAParks site. Overall great value. Staff very friendly and helpful.
