About the property
Within minutes of Renmark-Paringa, our property overlooks the Murray River and creeks. We use our limited river access to hire kayaks and take kayak and dinghy tours so the camp area is 350m from the river, set around the original (abandoned) farmhouse. In the outbuildings there is a camp kitchen, bathroom & toilet. Power is available from these rooms by extension cord at no extra charge.
It's ideal for those who want somewhere to stay the night before or after their tour experience and those who love serenity.
We only have river water on tap so please BYO drinking water. Dogs are welcome but must be on a lead at all times.
Camping rates are $10 pp (except peak times). Kayak hire and some tours can be booked as an extra. Please note that we don't provide motorboat access.

About the host, Ruth Roberts

Jim & Ruth enjoy sharing the beauty and peace of the Murray River with other people. Their primary business is to take kayak tours and hire kayaks from their riverfront property but basic facilities are available to let people enjoy the total environment through camping.

This was my first time being a guest with Youcamp. I had a very peaceful and relaxed stay. Ruth was very amiable and very helpful. There are a couple of large established trees under which a few tents can be pitched. Kayaking on the river was optional.

Ruth and Jim were wonderful hosts. The property and its facilities were brilliant with all the amenities to make life that much easier when camping with young children. The access to the river and their canoe and dingy tours makes for a very enjoyable camping experience. Thanks Ruth and Jim.

We loved staying here! The set up was perfect for us, we just wanted somewhere to rest and relax and that's exactly what we got. The hosts were very helpful and friendly and we loved our kayak tour! We've already talked about wanting to return. Kitchen and shower were also fantastic!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, I can't recommend this place enough. A perfect location, facilities were very good and the owners were helpful. We spent two nights camping at the property and one night kayak camping. We hired kayaks and paddled up the river to camp in an idyllic location.

I absolutely LOVED my time here. Camping alone on this beautiful property with excellent amenities & Ruth & Jim nearby was perfect for a female travelling alone. My hosts obviously love the natural world & guided me into my first canoeing experience which was AWESOME, whole area, quiet & STUNNING.

Good facilities if you're used to camping; adequate kitchen & ablutions. River setting is lovely & although we weren't able to use canoes, it looks very well catered for if required.

We have just returned from 5 days here and highly recommend to anyone who is after a peaceful setting by the river. The toilet, kitchen (plenty of cutlery, crockery, cookware and cleaning products) and bathroom were very clean and modern. Ruth and Jim were friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Ruth and Jim were great hosts! The property was great with great facilities perfect for a few days of relaxing. We enjoyed a few hours of kayaking and sitting across the river which was beautiful and got to enjoy some wildlife. Would definitely recommend staying here and would stay again :)
