Andrew Drynan Park is situated on Running Creek, 47 km south of Beaudesert and 19 km from Rathdowney on the Lions Road. The drive from Brisbane will take a couple of hours. It has an impressive backdrop formed by Mt Chinghee. The park is divided by The Lions Road and care should be taken with children. Running Creek is a lovely flowing creek which is very inviting in summer and the park offers a great bush camp among the tall trees. As some of the pools are deep, children should be supervised. Toilets, BBQs, picnic tables and swimming. BYO drinking water. Pets to be restrained. No showers—a dip in the creek will keep you clean but please don’t use soap or detergent. Directions: At Rathdowney, turn left into Running Creek Rd and travel approximately 17km south east.

Great camp pity about some patrons
I had the perfect camp Spot, close to toilets. Close to creek which was beautifully flowing. Unfortunately due to no management onsite there was some less than desireable patrons which did put a bit of a dampener on things. The couple who were having a domestic all day followed by the 5 cars that arrived at 9pm with no common courtesy, last I looked at my watch was 2.20am and they were still winding down after being continuously woken up it was a very restless night.

Great 2 days camping
Great place for the camper van and our friends tents. Beautiful creek and great fun floating down the rapids. Kept immaculately clean. Not too many people so you can feel away from it all. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous family friendly spot, with plenty of space and very clean toilet facilities. We camped here to hike mount Barney and Mount Maroon, which was not too far plus the campground had a swimmable creek. No drinkable water so bring your own. Also booking online is more expensive, pay in person when the caretaker comes by at 6pm.

I loved tent camping on the borderline of the bush with magnificent views. The land is exceptionally beautiful in this area and the camp facilities were really well maintained. The weekends were busy but it was great to see that guests abided by the quiet time.

This is a terrific place to camp with the creek being the highlight for the grandchildren. Clearwater and rapids to play and swim. There was plenty of space although be aware most is on sloping ground.

Beautiful big campsite!
Great spot, close to the river. Most of the campsite is on a hill, but still some flat spots if you need them. Incredible views of the sunset/ sunrise. Site owner will come and collect fees each morning and night so make sure you prebook or have cash ready.

Breathtaking views
Surroundings are absolutely breathtaking, swim in the creek, campfires are allowed, use of generators are welcoming, flushing toilets get attended to daily and camping all around on green grass. Make sure to have own firewood, have enough diesel as the closest servo is about 27km from there, no dump point or rubbish bins due to remoteness and please take your rubbish with you Very well managed. Thank you to Barry for sharing this awesome place. Will return.

We’ll be back
Great spot for a weekend getaway as it’s only an hour away from us on the Gold Coast. We enjoyed the clean and tidy amenities and loved going for a swim in the creek. It’s a well looked after spot and we’ll be back!

Great spot. Well cared for and toilets were top grade, with even a right and left amenities for those with a challenge. Barry ! The soap dispenser just a little high for those in a wheelchair. All together a great stay. Thanks

Basic open area park for camping with flushing toilets and firepits, relatively inexpensive. Very scenic area and campsite is straight off the road but it's not busy or loud. A little bit of a slope in areas so tent camping was little difficult as the flatter area was very busy on the longweekend. Other than that nice place, creek was flowing and pretty clear if it hasn't recently rained.

Unfortunately we didn't end up staying when we got there it was packed camps were situated to way to close together and any of the spots that were left was to much of a slope to level out. Would prob be a good place to camp when to so busy. camp grounds looked tidy and the toilets were clean

A well setup and reasonably priced camping ground with great views of the mountains. Barry would drive through 3-4 times a day checking in and out the campers. The running creek is a great escape from the heat

Outstanding little campground!
Absolutely stunning little campground! Nestled in a valley with a beautiful range to watch the sun rise and set over, and an awesome creek to have a swim in. 100% will be back!

Nice ‘drop in’ camp grounds
The camp grounds were well maintained and the toilets were tidy and clean (apart from the lovely Mr Huntsman 😖) but that’s nature for you. Everything would have been perfect if it wasn’t for the unexpected storm that came rolling on in the evening, then the wind, that didn’t let up. All in all it was a lovely camp ground that I would happily recommend to others 👍
