Charleys Creek Campgrounds

78 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents35 acres · Chinchilla, QLD
Want to save! Book direct via our website. Charleys Creek Campgrounds, Chinchilla (previously known as Clover Hill Camping) is a unique campground right on Chinchilla’s doorstep. Set on 35 acres on the banks of Charley Creek, it has a beautiful bush land setting adjacent to the creek. A truly tranquil experience. Recently rebranded the name to Charleys Creek Campgrounds as it is more fitting, as there is no clover, not much of a hill, and not in America (Ranch). This will also tie in with our other entities - Charleys Creek Beef and Charleys Creek Brewing. We have a number of projects on the go and planned for the Charleys Creek entities to make every stay a unique and authentic experience. "Not just a campgrounds, its the experience". You are welcome to visit us, get to know us, and be part of our journey. This campground offers toilets, showers, access to potable water, and power hook ups. Open fire pits, and fire wood available. It is a dog friendly property. The story of Clover Hill Ranch- In 2019 our livestock enterprise was struggling with the ongoing drought. Water was getting very low and we were buying hay from Victoria. One day while checking stock on our grazing property Bradys (adjacent to Clover Hill Ranch) we looked across the near dry creek and said to each other - if we are going to endure this drought we need to do something different. So we were able to acquire Clover Hill Ranch which was then being run by the CMCA under a lease agreement to the then owners. Then Covid struck and the CMCA left Clover Hill Ranch. So we took it on ourselves and it has been a journey managing our four farming blocks Riverleigh; Coleridge; The Shanti and Bradys as well as Clover Hill Ranch. Fast forward and it is now April 2021 we absolutely love it; enjoy chatting with Campers about our story and we have even organised a Farm Tour route through all of our properties. The feedback has been amazing. We are continuously doing improvements to Clover Hill Ranch with many new Powered Sites with town water and new campsites right on the creek. And everyone loves it when we bring out our trailer mounted meat smoker to put on a smoked Wagyu feast! Campers can purchase our Wagyu and Grassfed Angus beef to try while camping and can even buy some to take home. Activities available at Charleys Creek Campgrounds, Chinchilla: include camping; fishing; kayaking; motorbike riding; bird watching and bush walking. There is accessibility for RVs, camper trailers, caravans and big rigs. Pull through bays available. Camping in tents is allowed. It is walking distance to Chinchilla town centre and Lions playground. Farm tours available upon request. Bookings preferable in advance to avoid disappointment.

Dog-friendly camping near Chinchilla guide

Overview

A small rural town that’s bursting with vibrant culture and renowned Queensland scenery, Chinchilla offers first-class camping and adventure. Start the trip on horseback in Barakula State Forest, where tough terrain meets sweeping scenic views and solitude. Bunya Mountains National Park awaits to the east, ready to refresh the senses with waterfalls and a range of accommodations from basic tent pitches to opulent cabins. Craving a cool down? Head to the fresh water of Lake Broadwater Conservation Park for boating and swimming, then check out the campsites, which offer plenty of luxuries like heated showers and barbecue grills.

Where to go

Barakula State Forest

This dog-friendly forest is under an hour drive from Chinchilla. Covering over 280,000 hectares, with service roads twisting throughout, Barakula State Forest is the perfect place for biking, horseback riding, hiking, and camping. This area offers a rugged experience in the wild that isn’t suitable for caravans though. Instead, roll the motorhome into a nearby campground just outside Barakula State Forest, and find convenient amenities like pull-through sites, full hookups, wifi, and playgrounds for the kids.

Bunya Mountains National Park

Besides featuring the biggest group of ancient bunya pines in the world, Bunya Mountains Provincial Park also delivers mountain ranges, grasslands, waterfalls, and wonderful camping opportunities. The park is situated two hours from Chinchilla and hosts a variety of campsites, from walk-in tent pitches to drive-in caravan sites. Most on-site camping spots also offer toilets, shower facilities, and picnic tables. For a more luxurious stay, find timber chalets and charming cottages for larger groups wanting more amenities.

Lake Broadwater Conservation Park

The shallow waters in Lake Broadwater Conservation Park make it a hot spot for viewing local wildlife. Zip around the water on a motorboat, jump in for a swim, and climb into a shoreline bird hide to watch for migrating bird species. Campsites within the park feature pitches for tiny tents or large caravans and have amenities like heated showers, barbecue grills, picnic tables, and potable water. In case it's booked, the nearby town of Dalby hosts additional camping accommodations on private rural farm pastures or in canvas yurts.

When to go

November through April are generally the best months to camp in Chinchilla for lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. January is the hottest month and sees highs around 31°C—a perfect time to visit Lake Broadwater Conservation Park. If getting a taste of the local life is a must, visit in February for the biannual Melon Festival. Campers should bring an extra doona when visiting Chinchilla in winter, as temperatures can drop to near freezing. Pay a visit to Barakula State Forest in late winter and early spring, though, for colourful wildflowers in the grassy hills.
