We camped (tents) near the homestead, the camping area was flat and in amongst the trees. There were spots for fires, but it was really hot while we were there so we didn't light one. The toilets and showers are clean and maintained, there is a commercial washing machine available. The staff were professional and treated us well. They have... More

This facility is great. Has a range of accommodation options ranging from camping sites through to self contained cabins. It's amazing just how many people are 'drawn' to this spot. Staff very laid-back but friendly and helpful. Great meal choices available and well cooked.

We (couple in our late forties) were on an extended outback journey and decided to drive up to Drysdale River Station to finally decide whether we shall head up even further north into the Kimberley's. The Campground is OK, facilities are clean and practical... The washing machines were certainly a treat. We spoiled ourselves with their Signature Burger for dinner... More

Drysdale River Station is like most stations along the Gibb River road and Kalumburru road. They provide a respite from dust and corrugations with good camping and facilities. The toilets and showers are very clean, up to date and there's laundry facilities as well. Even if you don't stop here on your way to Mitchell Plateau or Kalumburru, you'll need... More

Welcoming friendly staff and surrounds. Good quality of amenities given we are in outback Australia. Food ok at the pub too, especially after cooking in campsites for a week. Good cold beer. Washing machines available if you need to use them.

This campsite is really nice. I would just say bring earplugs as the cattle sounded like a bad primary school trumpet band when we were there! It's the jumping off point for the Mitchell Plateau, and they also offer flights up over the coast and Mitchell Falls. We did this and it was really good. The campsite is very big... More

If you are planning a trip to Mitchell Falls (and why wouldn't you?) then Drysdale is the logical place to stop, both on you way up and on your way back. The road north can be very, very rough, so don't plan on a quick trip to the falls, allow a day each way. Not that it takes that long... More

We stayed in the campground for 3 nights in our tent. Beautiful place to stay. Very friendly staff. Drove up to Mitchell Falls for the day. Very long day but got back just before sunset - an amazing experience. $15 per adult per night for the campground. Toilets & showers nice & clean. Beautiful garden for drinks & meals. Recommend...

Great little spot while driving the road to Mitchell Falls. The KBB (Kimberley beef burger) was so good we had to try it again on the way back. Fuel and water available, didn't camp but enjoyed a cold beer and a burger and we really enjoyed it.
