Last weekend my wife and I packed the car with our tent and headed off to a wonderful gem of a place called Night Sky Caravan Park. It is situated 17km from Bonnievale and 34km away from Robertson. Night Sky Caravan Park is situated on a wine farm. The main attraction of the Caravan Park is this farm dam. It has unbelievable bird life.
It has grass-covered sites, 24 power points, braai spots and clean ablutions. Something lacking in most other camping and caravan parks. They allow caravans, tents and they also have a few chalets. The campsite is open to both tents and caravans. For those not wanting to rough it, they have cabins. The prices are reasonable and they are quite spacious inside. Some of the bigger camps have built in fire-places as well.
For entertainment, there are canoes where you and the kids can paddle around the dam. Fishing for black bass in the dam (catch and release policy). The best thing of all NO MUSIC. There are plenty of wine farms around the area if you want to go wine tasting.
So all in all a great trip. This place is a real gem, so try it out. The cost for the camping site was R120 per night. The cabins were about R240.00 per night. Please contact Night Sky Caravan Park to get the updated rates.
