On the bank of a dry riverbed, large trees provide nature lovers with shady spots to set up camp. Natural stone has been used to build the attractive bathroom facilities, in keeping with the wilderness feel of the campsite. The rocky hill behind the campsite affords grand vistas of the surroundings, has a well-marked walking trail and lends itself to sunset celebrations with drinks in hand.
CANYON ROAD CAMPSITE
Tucked behind Canyon Roadhouse, Canyon Road Campsite offers shady camping on the bank of a dry riverbed,against a backdrop of rocky hills. Secreted away from the road, the campsite gives you the impression of being alone in nature with the eagles, thorn trees and the ancient beat of the land. Listen, as you sit beside your campfire below the glittering quilt of the southern night sky. In the silence, you may be able to hear the call of the canyon, 14 kilometres away.
One of the few Fish River Canyon camping destinations, Canyon Road Campsite offers the luxuries of civilisation whilst out in the wilderness. What more can you ask for? Nature supplies the rest. Enjoy the simple pleasures of life on the doorstep of the second largest canyon in the world.
