#50 Beaverlac - Porterville
So today to celebrate our 50th Campsite if the year, I thought we would head off to were the Off-road Camping bug bit, it was the first camp I ever did in the Disco.
Beaverlac is probably one of the best known campsites in the Western Cape and for very good reasons. The campsite itself is best accessed by a high clearance vehicle but small cars can make it, as long as they are not overloaded.
The campsite does not have a formal layout, so Campers can camp anywhere they please. Shade can be at a premium over the busier periods so please consider this before leaving home.
There is also no electricity on the farm, so bear that in mind. Dogs are allowed on the farm, however they are not allowed in the rock pools.
The rock pools are arguably the best part of Beaverlac for me personally. I love swimming in the mountain water while the kids love jumping off the rocks into the pool below. The water is refreshing and the pool is big enough to allow swimmers to relax on tubes etc.
Beaverlac probably has the best shop of any campsite I have ever been to and stocks pretty much anything you need, including beers and wine etc. There are a couple of freezers at the campsite for campers to stores their own meat in.
There are a number of secret / hidden pools on the farm that can be found on the walks that are marked throughout the farm.
Beaverlac has a very formal booking process so if you don’t to pay them a visit, which I suggest you do, then read through the process carefully and follow the step by step instructions.
We haven’t been back yet since buying the Commander but we definitely intend to do so soon.

Just because we were inland does not mean there was no underwater antics.
Beaverlac boasts a healthy looking population of Clanwillian Redfin. These small river dwellers are some of the few fish indigenous to South Africa and are considered vulnerable.
