Jetpur Kevdi is a eco tourism campsite situated near Mandvi, Surat. Normally I don’t start any post with clarification but Kevdi campsite needs it.
There are two campsites in Gujarat: Having same name as Kevdi.
That’s the confusion. You’ll search on Google, “Kevdi Campsite” and find a link of Gujarat Tourism on top. That’s Kevdi located in Vadodara district on GJ SH 62! Not in Surat.
Thus, make sure you’re looking at this: Kevdi Eco Tourism Site, Kevdi, Gujarat on Google Maps, otherwise you’d reach to Vadodara in search of Kevdi!
Personally, I haven’t been to this place.
I had prepared two lists:
Many people found them very useful. Then, I started preparing a list of campsites in Gujarat. At that time, I remembered Kevdi, Madvi as Tanmay Naik suggested me the campsite once. All photos are by Tanmay.
Another source of information is, Map Less Journey blog by Nitin Kanani. Contact details and accommodation details have been sourced from his blog. It’s an awesome blog about travel to unknown places.
