We stayed over for a weekend getaway at the Glen Reenen Rest Camp. Our accommodation was what you wold expect from SANParks. The Longdawel we stayed in was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. The only drawback (first world problems) was the parking was a bit far from the longdawel. There was a couple of sour points however.... More

Really nice camp facilities in the bottom of the valley, with beautiful flat spacious camp sites. Right next to the river with loads of shade, which is great for summer however can be rather cold for winter.

My fiance and I recently stayed here for a weekend. The rondavel is very basic, doesn't have an oven. But thats all I can say negatively about this phenomenal place. The place was clean and the scenery was amazing. Also it was so quiet and relaxing

We camped in the Glen Reenen Rest Camp over a long weekend for a total of 5 days. The surrounding sand stone mountains are majestic and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. This is probably one of the most scenic and magical areas I've been to. Attractions in the park is minimal, but for hiking it seems to be one of... More

We were accommodated in a family chalet at Glen Reenen. The chalet itself was spacious and clean, two bedrooms and an open plan lounge and living area. The unit (26) had an indoor fireplace and outdoor braai, really quite nice. The downside: This was a self-catering unit but there were no braai dishes/pans and more importantly no dishcloths, napkins, washing... More

Having passed through this beautiful Park on a previous occasion I was really excited to incorporate Glen Reenen as a first stop on our road trip. Camping at Glen Reenen was totally amazing except for the noise. The camp site was great, we had an awesome spot. The facilities were top class. Clean and loads of hot water all the... More

The campsites are not that well demarcated and so people who arrive first tend to spread themselves over two camp sites which is selfish. The grass was long and the electrical points are centralised so if you want a nice spot you would have to have about 50 metres of cable which is dangerous. The ablutions are in need of... More

Firstly besides the breathtaking view of the mountains and camping at the foot of them. Glen Reenen's campsites at Golden Gate is one of the most beautiful campsites we have camped at. Bathrooms and facilities are really kept clean and maintained very well. Staff are very friendly and a nice touch is that even though you might use your own... More

Our guests were informed by reception of an outstanding amount which I didn't appreciate, why not phone me to tell me about this amount instead of approaching our guests from abroad. It was conservation fees that reception failed to calculate correctly. Chalets were average, really nothing special. Not suitable for small children, there is an extremely dangerous cliff face right... More
