Camping Pods

Experience camping in a pod, the best way to camp! The concept is to bring all your own equipment less the tent – so you need to bring your own bedding including mattress or camp bed, cooking equipment and anything else you think you might need for a camping trip. Best of all you will be cosy and warm with no wet tent to pack away at the end of your stay.

The pod consists of lockable double doors, carpeted flooring, electric heater and lighting with the use of a double plug socket. There is also a small decking area on each of the pods for use as a seating and cooking area. At each pod there is a picnic table exclusively for your use. 

Use of the showers blocks and electricity is included. Fishing is separate and tickets can be purchased when you arrive.

There are three variations of Camping Pods at Sumners Ponds:

  • A Standard Pod which can accommodate up to two adults and two small children. (Pods 2 and 3)
  • A Family Pod can accommodate up to five adults. (Pods 1 and 4)
  • A Premium Lakeside Pod which are located on the Sumners Lake and can sleep up to two adults and two small children. (Pods 5 and 6)

The dimensions of the Standard and Premium Pod are: Width: 2.3m x Length: 2.7m x Hight: 2.0m

The dimensions of the Family Pod are: Width: 2.5m x Length: 3.5m x Hight: 2.2m

Arrival time for the Camping Pods is any time after 2.00pm and departure is before 12 midday. It is a minimum stay of two nights at a weekend or during school holidays unless otherwise stated.
