Ayers Rock Campground
Reviewed 1 November 2011

The campground is not cheap, but it has excellent facilities including a pool.
Get in early to get a nice spot away from crowds and families.
Check the website for pricing as prices often change.

This is the closest place to camp to Uluru.

Camp kitchen is excellent. No camp fires are allowed. Lots of great facilities.

Sites are on hard ground, some grass around. Very open areas.

Room Tip: Get in early to pick your site, or around 10am.

I would not recommend this camp ground or the people who run it as they cancelled our booking.The issue arose due to the requirement to provide credit card details via email ( unsecured ) are you kiiding me !!!.they did confirm that we had a booking via mail and would hld the booking.so when we had flow 3 hrs to find out our accomodation had been cancelled.not impressed.

We stayed here in 2009 as part of our tour around Australia. Out of our entire trip..this place was the most expensive, but was the most basic you ever seen. We were given our keys and told where to go, after a while of walking backwards and forwards we finally found our room. Well the room was a box with two sets of bunkbeds in it, that was all. A square box with bunkbeds. The room was not very clean as there was lots of spider webs in the corners. The showers and toilets were in the next block, and all were shared among the other residents, creepy crawlies, lizards and all! We never felt comfortable at this resort. There was a few places to eat and drink. After having dinner one night walking back to our box we were told not to enter the room as a king brown snake had made its way under our door, eventually the snake made its exit with a park ranger moving it on. We had to stuff blankets under the door to prevent anything else from crawling in. As its an outdoor resort there are lots of creepie crawlies everywhere in this place. Its so expensive as its right next to Ayers Rock within the national park, but dont be fooled thinking its five star resort. Only stayed here as we wanted to be close to see Ayers Rock.

Since this is the only camp grounds in the complex, you really don't have a choice as to whether you stay here or not. The price per night is pretty comparable to other campgrounds in Australia, where in reality, they could charge more because it's the only option. I think it was about $30 a night. The difference is that there wasn't wifi available throughout the park, as there now is in a lot of caravan parks throughout Australia. There is internet available at reception though. My only real problem with the place was how filthy the bathrooms always seemed to be. They don't provide ANY soap to wash your hands at the basins next to the toilets either. I found it was best to try to take your shower at around 4pm before everyone goes in to have theirs. The mornings in the showers are even worse than the nights. Also, there was just one long drain which connected all the showers which was pretty gross, so try to get a cubical at one of the ends so you don't get other peoples dirty water washing into your cubical.

Just returned from 2 weeks in the Territory - Alice Springs, Kings Canyon, Ayers Rock and the Olgas - beautiful. Just a word about Yulara - spent two nights in a cabin at the campground - excellent facilities and friendly staff HOWEVER, there is an increase in the number of "bedbugs" and I was covered in bites on my first night. As I react to the bites by swelling up I needed anti-histamine urgently but there is no chemist/pharamcy in the resort and the supermarket did not stock anything suitable. Luckily there is an emergency medical clinic and I was able to obtain medication (free to Australians) - it is a requirement to phone a medical advice service prior to the centre to ensure you are in need of medical attention. The campground refunded my money for the nights accommodation and moved us to another cabin. It appears the "bedbugs" do not discriminate and can be found in ALL standards of accommodation at Yulara - the whole place needs a good clean and for the money one pays to stay at Yulara, I would suggest this is necessary. Not sure why everything in the Terrirty is so expensive, long gone are the days when supplies were transported by camel trains and took months to arrive - $2.16 for petrol and $4,00 for an Paddlepop seemed someone opportunistic. If Australia wants to know why no-one is travelling they should look at the cost of a holiday in Australia compared to Thailand or Bali or even the USA - it is much cheaper and better value.
