Former home of the Palm Creek Folk Festival. Relax in this peaceful, family friendly campground, nestled in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and nearby Mount Elliot. Pick a spot and set up camp. Enjoy the 70 acres of shady grounds with plenty of wildlife, including pretty face wallabies and abundant birdlife. The 20-acre dam is great for non-motorised water sports where you can paddle about on your kayak, canoe or SUP. Please be aware entry to the dam is a very muddy and there is a lot of weed at the moment. However, the water is beautiful and fresh once you get further in. Bring Mosquito/sandfly spray especially if camping by the lake. Settle down of an evening sit back and enjoy the spectacular starry night sky. Campfires allowed.

A beautiful spot in the mist beneath the mountain and next to the lake. So much space and lovely flat camp spots with a campfire.

Beautiful Spot
Stayed one night and loved the serenity (despite a little bit of highway noise throughout the night). Access to toilets and showers was great, and we made good use of the scattered fire pits. Would stay again :)

Absolutely love the camp ground and it’s very quickly becoming our favourite get away place. So much space, it’s quiet and very clean

Love coming here. We did get rained out this time and packed up early to come home. Tent camping and rain doesn't go together very well. Will be back!

We will be back
Stunning location, lake teeming with bird life and toilet/shower facilities spotless. Definitely a little gem. The only downfall even though tucked back from the highway you can still hear a little road noise.
