    There is great food but facilities need some attention
    This place needs a huge renovation. Note it is not a working farm and serves only as a accomodation stop. Toilets needs significant upgrading. Benefit many campsites have a shelter that can be sued for cooking. What is a must is the food. The cafe at the front is worth a stop regardless if you are staying or not.

    Best family accomodation in Kings Canyon
    Stay here if you are travelling to Kings Canyon. You can drive 30km’s to the canyon and back again easily. Great playground and camel talks for the kids, great food, cute fire pits at all the powered sites and staff were awesome. This is the best place to stay in the area - way better than the Discovery Park up the road!

    Absolutely breathtaking.
    We stayed in the Drovers Dream accomodation for two nights. The most wonderful experience of our trip. Spectacular views from brilliantly appointed room. Fantastic dinners ready in the refrigerator daily for us to cook on the bbq adjacent to our verandah. Full cooked breakfast at the station each morning. Staff were exceptional. I would highly recommend this authentic and luxurious experience. It was everything the advertising promised and more!

    Basic facility in the outback
    Very basic facility - not even a kettle to boil water. The showers look old and rust, but did have hot water. The campsits are bare dirt and hard to put pegs in. The stars at night are amazing if you move away from the lights of the camper vans. The burgers are great, if you have the patience to wait, as they were really busy.

    Beautiful kings creek station
    We stayed two nights in their glamping tent accommodation . I did not realise it was 30mins drive from kings canyon but was so worth it . The accommodation was amazing , the people at the stations reception and cafe accommodating . The staff organised a simple breakfast that we could take to the tents at very little cost and enabled you to get an early start instead of wasting time to go to a cafe and wait . The solitude was beautiful and the views spectacular , even had your own outside fire pit . Highly recommended

    Basic but clean
    While the tents were tiny, they were clean. The shared bathrooms were well maintained too. The food and beer were great, and the people were friendly. Love the camel burger.. However, like most accommodation in the Red Centre, it's expensive. But then again, there weren't many options available at Kings Canyon.

    Luxury and Delicious Cuisine
    This was the "splurge" for our holiday and Drovers Dream did not disappoint. The very roomy tents were equipped with everything you could possibly want. They were private with magnificent views. We took the meal package . A fully cooked breakfast was available at the cafe; the pre-selected dinners were placed in our fridge for cooking on our own BBQ when we were ready. The salads, sides etc were amazing and so fresh.

    Great glamping experience
    We stayed in one of the Drover's Dream glamping tents for 3 nights for our wedding anniversary. Our accommodation had a beautiful view of the Macdonnell Ranges and was lovely and peaceful. Bed was very comfortable, full ensuite, tea and coffee making facilities. Plenty of food supplied each day to cook dinner on the barbecue, which was great after spending the day hiking. Buffet breakfast each day about a five minute drive away. 35 km drive to King's Canyon. A beautiful place to stay.

Friendly staff at reception and otherwise.

We had a bush tent, it was even better than expected - now with air conditioning. Not so at our last visit.

Good showers with plenty of hot water.

Nice kitchen share facilities.

Definitely recommendable.

Sad and disappointing camping experience. We were here years before and it was an oasis, now it’s like camping on a Mad Max set. Decaying infrastructure, filthy kitchens (if you can call them that), paid $80 a night for a tent site. Pool has a shiny coat of oil from use and not being cleaned, no shelter to cool off in or get away from the flies. Washrooms are
Dodgy.

Just had the most remarkable stay at Kings Ck Station and if I could give 10 stars I would. The foundational stuff was perfect:- bush tent was super comfortable, comfy beds, air con worked a treat on a 35 degree day, so it was our retreat in the afternoon. Camp kitchen was super clean and had everything we needed. We loved the camels, the baby camels, spotting dingos, lizards and birds. The Cafe was awesome, excellent food, best burgers, reasonable prices. The human stuff was above and beyond - all staff so friendly and helpful, making our stay very special. Extra!- when we ran into trouble with our hire car the help was extraordinary. We were stuck while waiting for road side assist for 5 hours, so staff offered for us to stay in our room as long as we needed, and offered all the extra support we needed. Big, big thanks to the very lovely Savannah who went above and beyond to help us out. Our stay was very special, we will be back.
