We as wanted to go hiking but the area did not have the facility. There is a lovely river, which is good for a... More

We had a huge area to ourselves right near the ablutions with plenty of shade. The ablutions were old but spotlessly clean. The shower pressure was amazing and there was plenty... More

An excellent benefit of this camp site is that there are no stipulated check-in and check-out times. So full advantage can be take on days booked here.

We decided to go camping with our friends to celebrate my 30th, as we knew that the guys would get a bit too crazy for our complex. We were very excited to find that we were allowed to bring our dogs along to Magalies Sleepy River. Our dogs had a blast and so did we. The bathrooms were also very... More

We spend the long easter weekend at Sleepy River Magalies. It cost us more in money and hassles to stay there. We were robbed at 12 at night when we went to the toilets with my son still asleep in the caravan. All car keys stolen and it cost a fortune to have our vehicles unlocked. All we got was... More
