Its now 800pp, and not possible to negotiate. As we were 4, we asked if we could only pay 3000 a night instead of 3200 (we didnt have change). The lady refused and said she will find us change. 16 hours later the next morning, it was time to leave and she had given us only 250 instead of 800. We had to chase her down again, and she gave us 350 this time saying that "there is 200 missing but its fine isnt it ?". Like if 200 was nothing for us muzungus. We had to get a bit agressive with her (its not about money, its about principles) and she quickly found some extra 160 shillings... We lost 40 in the story (0.30$, its nothing but we left with a sour taste in the mouth).
Also our 2 cars got rocks throwen at them by kids on the way to the campsite. (Very slow shity track by the way, very rocky, steep and bumpy for 1km) We complained at the lady when we arrived and she... loughed at us. Nice.

Seeing the way they treat tourists like us, we will for sure never be back there. Otherwise it's a peaceful place to spend the night.

Nice campsite with some flat sites for cars with RTT. Nice view over valley. Restaurant not tried (they only had chicken when we were here). Friendly people that leave you to yourself. Quiet at night. Opened a room for (hot) shower and toilet. 700 KES pppn. Good for one night.

Perfect place for a stopover or few more nights to explore the surroundings. Everything correct as stated below. We thought it could be a bit noisy with cars coming in late or leaving early, music and people talking. But nothing really disturbing. Very nice staff. Hot donkey shower but rundown ablutions. It would help if they would been cleaned more often. They can also open a room for you to shower if needed. Further nothing to complain. Definitely recommended

Lovely, scenic drive on the C51 to this very pleasant campsite. We received a warm welcome, grassy site with amazing views, basic ablution block but great shower with very hot water and western flushing toilet. The site had a large overlanding tour staying and another overlanding couple and it felt lovely and buzzy, not too crowded or noisy at all. Very peaceful overnight. We didn't use the restaurant but it looked nice. This was a stopover for us but could happily have stayed longer to do a walk down into the valley. 700ksh pppn

Slightly disappointed with this place. It is tired and has half finished work everywhere. Plenty of litter on the ground and broken dirty toilets. It feels a bit sorry and neglected. Though the staff were pleasant and helpful, they initially seemed reluctant to let me stay. Maybe call in advance if you plan to visit. All that said the views are great.
