King Ash Bay Camping and Accommodation
Out in the middle of nowhere on the banks of the McArthur River near Borroloola you will find King Ash Bay Fishing Club. There are thousands of travellers who come through the area each year and most first timers are amazed at how much the place has to offer. If you are looking to stay at King Ash Bay for a short stay or a long stay, there are several accommodation options for you.
Camping and Caravanning at King Ash Bay
King Ash Bay is a fishing club, caravan park and small town all rolled into one. It’s quite a unique place. There are both powered and non-powered areas to camp in. Vehicles of all types and sizes are welcome and all camping areas are dog friendly. Caravans, camper trailers, motorhomes, tents and swags are all welcome.
There are no designated campsites and the club does not take bookings for camping. But don’t worry, no one has ever been turned away because the campgrounds are too full.
To camp at King Ash Bay, simply check in at the caretakers office on your way in. It’s located across from the King Ash Bay Servo and open 7 days.
Privately owned Cabins and Lodge
If you don’t have your own caravan or other camping setup, then there are other self contained accommodation options for you at King Ash Bay. The cabins are privately owned, so bookings are not taken through the caretakers office. Contact Borroloola Houseboats if you would like to stay in the cabins.
The cabins are conveniently located close walking distance to the Bar and Grill, the servo and the boat ramp.
The King Ash Bay Lodge is another privately owned business. There are several rooms available to stay in at the Lodge with large common areas. More information on the King Ash Bay Lodge can be found here.
Privately owned Houseboat Hire
For something a little bit different, why not stay on a houseboat on the picturesque McArthur River.
There are two houseboat companies that operate from King Ash Bay.
Borroloola Houseboats has 4 vessels to choose from in a range of sizes. The smallest houseboat is a four berth and the largest is the flagship vessel the “Pellew Explorer,” a large 12 berth vessel. Visit Borroloola Houseboats here.
NT Luxury Houseboats has two large vessels available for hire. Visit NT Luxury Houseboats here.
So as you can see, weather you are in a caravan, a tent, a swag or any other kind of traveler, there is an accommodation option for you to stay at King Ash Bay fishing club. It’s a lovely part of the world. I recently made a short video showing you around some of King Ash Bay. View the King Ash Bay Video here.
