Are you looking to unwind? A charming and spacious glamping 'Bell tent' that is set with water and garden views in a private corner of THE Hungry Spirit at Lightning Ridge. Beautifully furnished with a double futon mattress, turkish floor rugs and tea and coffee cart, you won't venture far from this bright and comfy space. With a lovely outdoor sitting space and a calm and peaceful energy, Charlie's Camp is a delight for lovers, healers and those who want a peaceful retreat.

The space
With a comfy double bed (futons mattress) and organic cotton linen you'll sleep well here...with bright night skies and water and garden views you will enjoy the peace, tranquility and healing nature of this space. Tea and coffee making facilities are tentside and you have full use of our modern and well equipped Outdoor kitchen which is a short stroll from Charlies Camp. Charlies Camp has 12v solar lightning and no power (recharging can be done in the shared outdoor kitchen).
There is a shared outside shower room - a short walk through the garden, its a canvas walled space with a corrugated iron roof fitted out with a 100 year old clawfoot bath and an instant gas hot water service. Toilet is outside the Tardis (inside a corrugated iron building), it's a flush loo which occasionally has friendly frogs.
If you are squeamish about frogs, don't want to hear the occasional dog barking (not ours!) or generator running (again, not ours, but we live next to the opalfields) or don't want a camping style experience then Charlies Camp is not for you.
Animals - as we have a dog and Rusty the pig (a gorgeous large boar pig, super friendly, occasionally smelly!), so for everyone's safety, we don't allow other animals.
We only welcome awesome people so you may make new friends in any of the shared spaces. Your guests Rebel Michael are locals with many passions.
