Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Maluti Mountains of the north eastern Free State lies the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. Mild highveld summers with the possibility of thunderstorms in the afternoon and cold winters with occasional snow transforming the park into a white wonderland.

The Glen Reenen Rest Camp is situated close to the Golden Gate Hotel & Chalets and offers rondavels, longdavels and guest cottages. For nature lovers who prefer to get a bit closer to the natural environment, caravan and camping sites are also on the list.

Activities available at Golden Gate Highlands National Park include abseiling, canoeing, game drives, hiking and nature walks, horse riding, and swimming.

Other useful information at this rest camp:

- Pets are not allowed.

- As outdoor lighting in camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.

- Vehicle repair, medical, post office and police services at Clarens (17 km) or Bethlehem (± 60 km).

- Remember to bring a hat, walking shoes, sun block, camera, binoculars and wildlife reference books.

- Hikers on day and overnight trails must always carry sufficient water.

- Take cool and light clothing for summer and warm clothing for winter.

- Area prone to sudden weather changes.

We loved the location and cleanliness. It is a very quiet environment perfect to relax and enjoy nature. I will definitely visit Glen Reenen again

The accommodation was clean and in a reasonably good state. The staff were polite, friendly and attended to our requirements. One down side is that there were a large group of campers who were rather noisy and played loud music which the staff ignored and this spoiled the atmosphere of being in a nature reserve. Definitely something to be brought to the attention of the staff.
