Great dog friendly camping
Loved how dog friendly this place was. The dogs could really free roam the property and explore (although they didn't wander that far from us) because you get a massive private area to yourself. Barbed wire fence which stopped them going out onto the road.
The top camping area where we stayed is right next to ironbark picnic area so there is a pit toilet there. I walked to the other campground which is about halfway between house and top of property (maybe 1km away?) And it had great views of the valleys and a nice deck but you'd need a camp toilet. Looks like it had power too.
It took me a while to find the house id suggest ignore the pin on the Google map and just navigate to the address given. The entrance is opposite a property called Misty with lions on the gates.
Then knock on front door and the owner showed the way to campsite on his quad bike.
Not a lot of dog friendly walks around because it borders national Park but there was a waterfall near mangrove mtn and you can walk along the road or the dirt road in the property.
We visited Strickland forest on the way home to give the dogs a good bushwalk.
Recommended, particularly given flexible cancellation policy (nothing worse than being locked into camping if it's forecast to pour with rain) and closeness to Sydney.
There were a few leeches around and some midgie things so take insect spray.
Had a peaceful time at Ironbark ranch. Awesome to be able to camp and be able to take our furry family member, and enjoy a ground fire. Awesome place too chill and enjoy some peace and quiet. Great outlook. Hosts Clint and Sasha, are friendly and put us in a great spot. Excellent place for a short break
I wanted a couple of days at peace with nature and it provided that perfectly. National Park all around with bush walks available for those who like that sort of thing. There were no other campers there at the time but if there were they could be a long way off. The National Park toilet was close by and clean. It rained pretty much all the time I was there so that may explain the lack of birds and other wildlife. Very peaceful.
Lovely peaceful place to camp in nature, we were lucky to have the whole field to ourselves, hosts Clint and Sascha were great at keeping us updated re. Roads / weather etc.. defo go back here
