We allow small childrens’ tents to be set up near the Heritage cabins but not larger caravan or complex tent sites. A single small tent is allowed near the Retreat Cottages but not larger setups. This is to keep these areas exclusive. Tents and caravans can however set up next to the glampers by booking a powered camping site.
Powered sites are a restricted area and to be in the powered sites, a powered site must be booked.
Gordon Country operates on a ‘first in, best dressed’ basis. For example, while booking at the Retreat will guarantee you a spot in the Retreat, it will not give you a specific area in the Retreat. Only groups over 50 will be reserved an area.
There are two camp kitchens – one on the powered sites and another smaller one at the retreat area. They are large undercover sheds with seating for up to 30 people. The camp kitchen located at the powered sites area is fitted out with a communal fridge, sink, microwave, fire pit, TV and some basic kitchen utensils. The Retreat camp kitchen only supplies tables and chairs and a BBQ, there is no washing up facilities available. These are for communal use except when booked exclusively for parties or events.
