We spent two nights at Kamu with our two children ages 7 and 10. We had a fantastic time. The lodge is sparse on arranged activities, you have a lot of time on your own. The food is a bit bland, we're guessing they're catering to a variety of tastes and true Lao food may be considered too much for tourists but there was a variety offered at each meal. We spent our afternoons playing at the "beach" joined by some children from the village. Our kids had so much fun and we loved watching them. This place is great for some quiet time away from it all. It was the best camping experience I could have hoped for in a remote part of Laos off of the Mekong River. I would love to return and bring clothes and toys for the kids in the village. The only feedback I would have for the lodge is to offer hiking/exploring itineraries and guides for that for guests staying more than one night. Definitely recommend more than one night.
