There is plenty of room at Cranky Rock for camping and there is a flushing toilet, camp kitchen and shower. Bird life is great and so is the location. Ideally situated for enjoying the Hunter Valley.

Cranky Rock is an lovely grassy camping site surrounded by bushland and not far from Wollombi. Only site 1 was open at the time due to wet weather but there are other sites available for camping. There are 2 pit toilets near Site 1 and a shower is available a distance away. Lindsay and Pam are excellent hosts and the site is pet friendly.

Wonderful spot and great hosts who have gone to the effort of supplying loos and a shower. Plenty of room to camp. Wonderful birdlife and frogs atm with all of the water.
Please leave no trace- take ALL of your rubbish with you! Please don't spoil it for others. We picked up rubbish left by people in the shower. Others left all their rubbish at the front gate. You know who you are! Stop it.

Lindsay and Pam were lovely and helpful as were their team. There was ample room for everyone to set up their camps without intruding on others. Would definitely visit again. Thanks Cranky Rock.

Pam & Lindsay were great hosts with a fantastic property. We arrived on Wednesday for Easter weekend and had a great camp with the Family. Lots of people but nobody was on top of you, we’ll spread out. We’ll be back
