Charlesford Farm Knysna

Charlesford River Camp Site

Charlesford River Camp Site is situated 15km from Knysna, in a secluded tranquil tree rich environment on the Knysna river banks with amazing birdlife. The campsite provides grass stands that are ideal for off-road camp trailers and tents for camping.

Charlesford farm is a working dairy and piggery. We have a butchery on the farm where we sell our famous beef and pork products, and a rustic farm café serving breakfast, lunch, tea & coffee and most days, fresh cakes and biscuits.

These pictures don’t even show just how magical this spot is! A gem we found, and became instantly enchanted. A pocket of unmatched beauty so close to town! We will return.
