Overview

If relaxing weekend getaway or a peaceful mid-week break is what you are looking for, Get Set Camp Bhandardara lakeview camp is just right for you. Nothing beats waking up in the lap of nature and breathing in fresh air, away from all the stressors of the city life. Our campsite is situated near Bhandardara Lake, which is formed due to the water coming from Pravara River through Wilson dam. From the campsite, you get a panoramic view of Arthur Lake as well as an access to the beautiful nature trails. When the water level in lake rises, the area becomes like an island. We also make sure there is a balance between ‘getting back to the basics’ and comfort level. Some of the amenities provided at our campsite include tent stay, toilets, delicious village-style food specially made at the campsite, and free parking spot. Camping in the outdoors and observing the beauty of nature can be a relaxing and insightful experience. Come, take a walk in the woods, soak in the pristine beauty of nature, and come out taller than the trees.

It was my second time here but unlike last time it was a rainy day so the tents were setup beneath a shelter for rain protection. The lake is at 5 min walking. The staff is good and the meals are cooked fresh at the campsite. The best part about the monsoon was the nearby waterfalls at the campsite. Since its a remote location it was like our own private falls. Would recommend the campsite for the winters after August.

We had visited in February. The location was great & the camps where setup on the lake side. Meals are very basic & are cooked on firewood by the staff . Washroom was far from the campsite as the tents where setup near the lake. Overall a good camping experience.

Awesum experience! We were an all gal group. Since it was our first camping experience we had some concerns about the safety. Once we reached the camps we were struck by the raw rustic setup and the beauty of the place. Thank fully it wasnt raining. The camps were setup in jungle kinda area overlooking the lake from above. The tents were under a metal shed due to monsoon. We had some hot maggie and went for a quick dip in the lake. The staff is local who speak mainly marathi but also speak hindi (not fluent). Despite of the communication gap the coordinator was attentive to our requirements and also showed us around the forest on request. There is an island near the camp which forms only during the monsoon. Its a must see. Cons: The washroom is basic Indian styled & does not have running water. The parking was away from the campsite but the coordinator assured us that its a safe area. No electricity but they had portable lamps & battery operated lighting. Pros: The campsite is kinda rustic and will give you a adventurous feeling. The staff is kind hence safety was never a concern. The campsite has many private waterfalls nearby during rainy. Cant wait to visit in the winters. Thank you

Had a very bad experience. No amenities at the campsite. The staff did not speak English or even proper hindi. The location is very remote. We expected proper lighting and electricity but nothing provided. There were 2 dogs in the vicinity. This camp is not good at all. no comfort no luxury. Not at all recommended.
