The arrival was lovely, all cleared and cleaned track. The camping area along the river was beautifully arranged, clean, mown, with lovely trees right down to the river. There's a small weir a short walk upstream. Toilets were provided. Firewood supplied for cost. Woke to a forest with a vast array of birds, including kookaburras laughing.
Really well-run and Phil & Annie care for their campground very well, and meet you and answer any questions, making sure you're settled.

Very nice place. Grounds were well kept, and campers placed a decent distance apart.
We would come back again, in fact one family we spoke to had been back 5 times.

What a beautiful bush setting nestled close to the river! Anne and Phil were great hosts coming out to check up on us as well as maintaining the facilities. There's so much to do from swimming, fishing, kayaking and bush walking - we'll definitely be back
