"One of the best places for camping. You will love the drive to reach this place, those roads!! so beautiful.\nCan't forget the hospitality of the host. Bahaddur, who is working over there and his kids are so much fun to talk. They served delicious authentic madikeri food. walk around the estate, don't worry Bahadur kids can take you there and be such a wonderful company. Bonfire, you get to meet different people from different places, share a drink, exchange of thoughts, what not. Overall its one of the affordable best packages in madikeri."

It was an stunning experience for me as solo traveler. Location is in 16 km cut from Madikeri towards Talakaveri and last 3 km pathway is very much into the forest and you will be enjoying that. Location is untapped by many and road in the last stretch is not so comfortable and that is the beauty of the place. The place is very much into the forest and you wont here any sound other than birds,leaves and wind. No Wifi and Network is very weak and that's exactly what we need when we are in holidays. Temperature is damn low at night and camp fire sets the mood for it to enjoy. Tent sleep is a different experience for me and i am sure it would be the same for all. Water stream flows nearby and we can go and pass time there. Morning, we walked around 2 Km into the forest to see a jungle falls which is icing on the cake. Trekking path is also untouched by many i believe. Also you can coffee estate to walk around. No need to mention that food is very delicious and so are services. On a whole, I am sure it would be a complete package for a camp day or two. if it is Coorg, this should be your stay place. I landed at thrillophilia accidentally and it is a needed one. If i want to say in Rajini style, "Magizhchi"

The service people out there are very generous and behaved very humbly. The bathrooms were pretty clean and well maintained with supply of hot water . The best part was bonfire. Truly speaking , it was worth going and staying out there and its one of the best days for us. Thanks Civet Creek Camping Team & Thrillophilia Team for coordinating. Cheers !!! Thanks and Regards, Debasish Nayak

"Fantastic experience!! We went in the summer(may) , still the weather was very pleasant and cloudy. Spending 1 day among those hills without any gadgets has given me a lifetime memory. The weather has changed so many times which made me feel like a couple of days have passed. Best part is camping and trekking, it was a moderate trek, but the leeches tortured us a little, the camp location is breathtaking, calm and beautiful. Highly recommended for nature enthusiasts and adventurers!! ????"

"If you've ever been to a camp, you quite know the drill!\nBut this one is off tracks (in a good way), right from the route one has to take to get to the camp -- to the view one gets from those tents -- the brilliant landscape -- homecooked feel good food -- the numerous options one has to pass time! from TT, badminton, volleyball, cricket to cards! The essentials and minor needs of visitors are taken care in the most adorable way, this makes one's stay even more pleasant.\n\nThe hospitality will blow you away!\n\nThe icing on the cake is the trek and the waterfall ????"

By far the best team outing me and my team had! And this was made possible by Civet Creek team and Thrillophilia. We were a little apprehensive about an over-night camping trip and going to a place with little to no phone signals. Though the checkin could be done by 11, we finally ended up at the place by 2:30pm. The place is tucked away in between coffee plantations. Since we arrived late on day 1 and a few were tired, we skipped the trip to waterfall. And it was hot (March)! We were the only group that day on the property. So we chose the shade of the adjacent tents to play some indoor cricket. Once it cooled a bit, the team had fun over the trampolines, rope walk setup, badminton, cricket and volleyball! There was also a TT table but there was no time!They have everything to keep everyone busy with some activity or the other. Once it became dark, everyone was silent for a while as they didn't know what to do. No mobile signals. That's when the camping started, chit-chatting, playing cards. For those not used to camping, till about 730-8pm, there would be some flies and insects around at this place. We asked Bahadur(the caretaker) to setup the bonfire around which we continued to chit-chat and have some wonderful food prepared by the cook. Simple yet tasty food and starters. We continued to have conversations under the starry skies till about 3am when we finally hit the bed. Each tent has bedding for 2 people which is comfortable and clean. Clean sheets and pillows were provided. The bathrooms too were clean and hot water supply was present round the clock. Need to carry torchlight though. The next morning after morning we went on a nice 30 mins trek which showed us our fitness levels right in our face. Bahadur's 5 year old son was much faster than us on the trek. The trek ended in a beautiful waterfall in a private property. Both the surroundings and the water were extremely clean. After spending a couple of hours there, we headed back to freshen up. Had some lovely lemon juice and left back to Bangalore. Mr.Madappa (the owner) and Bahadur (caretaker) made our stay extremely pleasant with the facilities, food, smiles and going the extra mile. And all this at a price of Rs1500/- per head .....wow!!!! Thank you!!!!

I will recommend the this camp as a ' must do'for anyone who is interested to experience Outdoor camping and has little time available. I had so many positive experiences that it will be difficult for me to write a crisp & yet complete review. I will however give it a try - first & foremost - the support provided by Thrillophilia was excellent - right from the booking stage to the trip confIrmation - it was a smooth experience. The people at the camp - Madappa Ji and Bahadur Bhaiyya were courteous and helpful. The tents and the shacks were nice - well maintained, clean, warm, free of insects & mosquitoes...Nice & light breakfast, lunch and dinner- well-suited for an outdoor camp like this. We had a great time at the waterfall - completely drenched ourselves & just didn't realize how an hour went by :) The coffee estate was lovely- so many trees, plants and shrubs. All in all, the experience is well worth the money and I strongly recommend it to outdoor enthusiasts. Thank you Thrillophilia for connecting people with such lovely experiences !

"it was a peaceful place with wonderful surrounding and nice weather.. the host was very helpful especially the servant named bahadur.. the waterfall tour was great even though it is a bit small but for a group of 5-6 it was good..advice:dont wait for others to come for waterfall trip. if they are not ready by 3 pm then ask for personal trip to waterfall it is 4 km from camp and 2 km walk after that."
