Each Campsite is private and some of the sites are equipped with electrical points. All the sites share the use of communal bathrooms with showers. Some of the Log Cabins can accommodate up to six guests, while others can accommodate two guests. The cabins offer double, king-size or single beds and have private bathrooms with showers only.

"OhMayGoodness"
16 May 2017
By Amanda Marshall
"My husband and I stayed over for 2 nights in May 2017 for our anniversary. It was bliss. We stayed in a delux cabin on the water and shared the entire site with only one other couple. Because it was May we fell in low season and paid better rates. We stayed in the two sleeper which was the perfect size, equipped with necessary utensils and beautifully clean. We especially loved the romantic jacuzzi bath. Not only that but the zip line mid week special also saved us a penny. We were the only couple at the zip line and could really appreciate he everything it had to offer with no queues. It truely was a beautiful and thrilling experience. In essence early May worked out well for us- no crowds, queues and specials while still being pleasantly warm enough to swim. Although they don't have 'the big five' we were so entertained by all the other activities we didn't miss them. It also gave us peace of mind when getting out of the car to marvel at a giraffe or two. This being said we were disappointed with the reception we received from staff. They were not very friendly and welcoming as one would expect in the hospitality industry."

"This is a gem of a paradise hidden away on earth. If you looking for a relaxing atmosphere , away form the hazel an bezel of city life Lake Eland is for sure the place to be. The Chalets on the lake is the highlight of someone's holiday, the peaceful surrounding and atmosphere makes it "WOW" trust me once you have been there a person don't want to pack up again."

"Super camping spot at the lake"
11 Jan 2016
By Suzette, South Africa
"The bottom camp at the lake is amazing! We loved it!!! Only complaint is that the ablution blocks do not get the same attention as the camp at the entrance. In the 4 days we were there nobody cleaned or add toilet paper to the ablution blocks, which is a pity because it is such a awesome camping spot. We will definitely camp there again. I don't know why anybody will bother camping at the top camping spot close to the pool."
