VKirirom resort. Ranges from pitch your own tent budget right up to a villa.

Looks a bit overbuilt to me.
There's plenty there for sure, but also the camping area is secluded and blissfully quiet ... unless you have the misfortune to go when it is at full capacity which is highly unusual. Plenty of space to walk in a forest for as long as you like and a welcome respite from the usual blistering midday sun. If going in low season you'll pretty much have the place to yourself. Final positive is that it is not too far out of Phnom Penh, for total seclusion you're looking for a much longer trip up north.

It must be a parody.
Nobody is that lazy, rude and demanding to good natured suggestions from strangers.
Surely?

The beauty of having one's own standards of course is the ability to raise and lower the bar where and when required.
