Very Quaint and comfortable.

Judy

Really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful campsite, well maintained.

Ed Mousley

Sadly we arrived when it was dark and had to leave early the next morning so it was a very brief stay in the forest hut (we went on to stay the other end of Storms River mouth in an oceanette which we highly recommend). The forest hut was great, just by a pond and lots of privacy - basic but it had all we needed. Shame we didnt have longer. Staff in the park were very friendly and helpful & it was awesome to see baboons as we walked back from the bathroom! (Chris & Rose)

We had a great time in Natures valley rest camp. The staff is friendly, the bedding clean and the setting is ideal when you want to rough it up a bit.

Such a beautiful part of the country, the cabins were beautifully equipped with everything we could need. Price was very fair. Sometimes a mission to get to a tap or ablutions and if you wanting luxury this isn't it. But for self catering inexpensive holiday it was amazing. Thank you San parks!

Richard Holman

Stay was excellent but there need to be burglar bars on the windows to keep the baboons out! Very clean and neat will definitely go stay there again!
