Cabins very pricey so we opted to camp with the caravan instead. No dingos at campsite.compared to Kings Canyon Resort where a dingo was in the campsite, looking for food. Maintenance for the clothes dryers could be better - four were non operational. Optional tours were very expensive, e.g. helicopter rides, camel rides, field of lights. The main attraction really is to visit the rocks and avoid the optional tours. Well stocked IGA supermarket at the nearby town square area and cafe and shops were interesting to browse through, as was the art gallery and free cinema. Reassuring to know there is a hospital nearby as well as a fuel station with reasonable prices compared to Erldunda.

The campsite was full so we stayed in the Overflow section. As it’s first come first serve, we were able to find a good spot which was not very close to others. The shower facilities were about 400-500 m away but there were some toilets much closer, which were cleaned regularly. Others using the site were respectful and we had absolutely no issue with anyone else staying there.

Having set up according to their signage only to find out the next day we had to move because more space was needed. No ownership of their error AND no one came into the space whilst we were there. Very disappointing.

Long queue to get in and expensive but hard to beat for location to Uluru. Staff weren’t particularly interested in helping but good facilities made up for it. The reaort itself has everything you need to stock up

It is very very hard to have any communication with the campground before you arrive. And the check in prices is diabolically slow. The whole time we were there, the queue of people waiting to check in was very long. Add an hour or two for check in to your travel time from where ever you are arriving. I received several invoices from the campground over the time between my booking and checking out - not one of them was correct, and all of them showed that I owed money when ever I had paid money (??!). The people who served me were polite and lovely, but the booking/invoice system they are working with is appalling. At the moment, many of the eating options around Yulara are closed. We found the Gecko Cafe to be good for a family meal. But self catering is definitely the way to go if you're on a budget. The local IGA was not as expensive as I had expected, but the opening hours (10am - 6pm) are tricky for any one who wants to spend all day out and exploring around the national park. We stayed in one of the onsite cabins. I knew that it would be small. If you plan to eat outdoors (there is a large outdoor table) then it's OK. There's no way a family could sit around the indoor table to eat a meal! The kitchen had a microwave and an electric frypan only for cooking, so plan your meals accordingly - no stove top or oven. When we arrived, there wasn't even enough cutlery for our family (4 each of knife/fork/spoon) - we were booked as a group of 5. Thankfully reception had spares! Very little space for storing and preparing food. But to be honest, the cabin was more comfortable than we thought and we all loved the short walk to the amenities block (very clean) - a chance to look at the stars, see the sunrise beauty, etc. The cabins are a great non-tent option.

I haven’t even been there yet and I am already wanting nothing to do with them. - try to book online and it simply tells us to contact via phone or email. Cool that’s fine - call them for two weeks straight literally just got off of a 4 hour on hold call wait and still no answer. - have sent 3 emails over 3 weeks and not once have I received a reply. Ayers Rock campground, your service (or lack there of) and lack of any sort of respect for answering or even reply to a potential customer is sickening. I have never in my life had to go through this to try book a place “AND STILL HAVE NOT HAD A PHONE ANSWERED OR AN EMAIL REPLIED TOO”. I have been to 3rd world countries that have better service and customer care then you lot. Either fix your website to allow proper use or actually answer your dam phones or reply to a email.

The young lady who checked us in was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We had a powered site which was quite spacious. There were a couple of large school groups which taxed the bathrooms but they were cleaned regularly so it wasn’t too bad. Because it is in the resort area the shuttle bus is great to use and tour pick ups are right outside the campground entrance. It would be nice to have a concrete slab to get away from the red dirt.

Travelling as a couple in a cabin in early March. On arrival to the cabin, noted to be very small (much too small for 6 people as advertised). Overall cabin very dated and unclean, sheets had stains on them + bugs throughout cabin. Long walk to toilet facilities with very poor lighting, used a torch to get there however then was attacked by flies. Very poor shower + toilets, multiple cockroaches found on floor. Cabin was so poor me and my partner could not stay there and ended up booking in to Desert Gardens hotel (best decision we made on this trip). I would advise against anyone booking into one of these cabins. How the price is so high for absolutely disgusting facilities is a disgrace.

We stayed three nights on an unpowered camp site with our 6 year old son. Amenities were just across from our site which were great. Loads of toilets and showers, with adjoining laundry, all very clean, fresh and updated. Viewing platform a short 5 mins walk from our site, great for sunrise (I imagine!!), sunset and fabulous spot for those family photo's with the rock in the background. Sites were large enough but in peak season there could be up to 1000 people on site, the campground is plain enormous!! Arrive with plenty of time for check in, we knew to get in earlish (we arrived around 2pm) from a tip from travelers we met on the way up, but the process still took around 1.5 hrs. We did however travel in peak season, just be prepared.
