The area is a river flat with grass and level sites, it is beside the Bernard River with access to the river from campsite. A firepit is provided plus toilet and water. Darrin is a generous host, the area is quite and remote with no service or internet. Getting there is for 4wd over dirt mountain roads.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this secluded farm stay. Beautiful days and brisk nights, running water and lovely grass. Darrin made an effort to check in on us to make sure we were enjoying our stay.

We loved the holiday, probably the most relaxing one we have ever had. We had the place to ourselves, a great fire pit, bonus amenities and plenty of wildlife and the most beautiful river flowing. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful spot.

Absolutely beautiful camp spot. Very well maintained, nice and flat surface, perfect ratio of sun and shade throughout the day. Overall a very well kept spot. Darrin came down and introduced himself and his fur babies, we talked for 10 minutes then he left, not intrusive at all and very friendly.
River is fun to play in with deaper spots up and down stream.

Would definitely recommend and will return.

A tranquil, relaxing and well maintained space separated from the rest of the farm. The campground is easily accessible along an unsealed road about a 40 minute drive from Nundle

We were kept company by the 2 delightful resident horses and Reggie the dog. The river was wonderful to swim and cool off in during the day and the sky beautiful for stargazing at night. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Darrin runs a very tidy and well secluded campsite right by a healthily flowing river. The amend ties are above standard fare- including a flushing toilet. Bring a bbq gas cylinder if you want a hot shower. We were there in January 2021 and the river was was flowing and perfect for swimming in.

Darrin’s campground has turf better than my lawn!

The drive in from about Sheba Dams is unsealed. We had a low clearance AWD and were totally fine. A 2WD car should be fine in most conditions. Would recommend driving in and out during the day as there are LOAD of native animals in the area. A walk along the river banks we spotted no less than 3 wombats.

I tried fly fishing at Sheba Dam (lower dam) and as it was a busy weekend the fish were disturbed but I was assured that there was trout in there by local Trout farmer at Arc En Ciel trout farm (would recommend going there, it’s only 25 mins away).

Not too much in the way of hiking from camp as it seems to mostly be surrounded by private land. A short drive away from the start of some great trails. Jump on AllTrails and check that out.

We only saw one car on the road the entire time we were there. For how easily accessible this place is it’s very very private.

Highly recommended and we will be back.

Beautiful camping by the river. A dip in the river with a glass of bubbles was perfect!
