Site 3 - Rum Jungle Ridge
Attended camp site 5 with the family and dog. Had a nice quiet time with walks up and down the dried creek bed. This is a nice place to sit back and re-charge your batteries.

Rum Jungle Ridge
Camping by the creek, we had the privacy and site to ourselves. Kids loved playing in small puddles of water and sand, fire at night. Thanks Ian and Michelle for your hospitality, clear directions to Litchfield and firewood. We look forward to returning.

Rum Jungle Ridge
Beautiful property. Ian and Michelle made us feel very welcome. We ended up camping at site 1&2 which was beautiful by the creek, big and private. We will definitely be back, next time with mates!
