About the host, Will Hood
Member since December 2017
We are a family that moved to the Keiwa Valley after having spent our childhood holidays at the local caravan park creating everlasting memories with many other families. Our love for the region and all it has to offer is something we want all families to experience. Our working farm gives you privacy and space but super close to Mt Beauty and Bright and moments away from the Kiewa River. Bring your horse, bring your dog, bring your kids. You won't regret it.

Everything they promised and a whole lot more! Will took great care to make the camping spot a beautiful, peaceful and private spot to enjoy. Running water, a sink, expansive mowed lawns and a gas bbq added to the tranquil surroundings and a very friendly host makes this unbeatable. We’ll be back!

I could tell you about the serenity this camping spot offers, l could tell you how close you are to the swimming dam, essential drinking water, rustic gazebo, I could tell you about the honest hard-working family hosting you.. but then again you could go make your own memorable moments.

Wow! Will and Mon go above and beyond to make you feel welcome on their beautiful property. I wanted to be selfish and lie about this place and say how awful it was. But, I can't help telling everyone I know about it. This place needs to be number 1 on your list for places to camp.

This place is spectacular. Will and Mon are great hosts and went out of thier way to look after us. The setting around the dam is absolutely beautiful with the lush grass area, the camp kitchen area and crisp clean water out of the creek. This place beats any caravan park, hands down.

We had the best weekend. The kids loved it (best spot ever!). It truly was one of the best camping spots we have visited. Picturesque, quiet, clean water, green grass and the dam was amazing. Thank you Will for your hospitality and for allowing us to spend time on your property. We'll be back.
