Great location, great host!
Lovely property with plenty of frontage to the Bellinger River. If you want a quiet, peaceful campsite in a stunning riverside location this place has it all.

Great spot right on the river. Even though we had a fair bit of rain while there, the ground was not boggy at all. We took our 19.6f van in and it was a bit of a tight squeeze in the narrow, winding road in, but we took our time and was fine. Caught some catfish and good size bass in the river.
Mark was a great host.

A gorgeous lush spot by the river. Fireflys at night made the stay extra special. Had it practically to ourselves and Mark was lovely - came down for a chat on arrival.

Mark's property is lovely. Off the beaten track and very serene. The swimming hole was pristine! Mark was very sweet and helpful in telling us about the area. We had some good chats and enjoyed our stay there a lot
