Stands
There are 60 level, grassed sites arranged along the banks of the Breede River.  There is a road which runs alongside the river and the camp sites are arranged along this road.  This allows all campers easy access to the river, without having to impede on the privacy of others. Most sites have trees that afford some shade.  The campsites are well demarcated and separated from each other with trees allowing for some degree of privacy.

Electricity
Each campsite has its own electricity connection for a standard three pronged plug.  The plug points are  located close at hand, so extension cords are not required.

Comments
We, as a family, love camping in the Breede River Valley and have been to many of the campsites in and around Robertson.  I must confess, until I started compiling these blogs on camping sites in the Western Cape, I was unaware of this resort.  I will need to add this one to my list of sites to try out.
