There are quite a few lovely campsites to choose from. The best is to arrive and have a look around to see what suits you. If these campsites are booked up, look up the Gold Nugget Creek Camp, it's on the same property and just as nice.

Its a short walk down to the creek where we have lots of large freshwater crayfish, that can often be seen foraging in the creek at night, please don't eat them, they are spiny crayfish and protected. 

You can spot foraging eels in the creek at night with a flash light. You'll see echidnas digging and wallabies hopping around. Resident kookaburras will wake you up in the morning with their chorus of laughter.

This campsite is nice and private, feels remote but is only ten minutes from Lismore. Heritage Park in Lismore nearby has a small water splash park/play area for kids on hot days.  Fires are permitted out of fire season. Nice walk down the rest of Yeager Rd a few km, very unspoilt and peaceful valley, the road winds alongside the creek.

Bungabee State Forest for 4x4 and mountain biking or take a 50 minute trip to Ballina for beach and river.

We have a bucket shower system which is quite fun and plenty of water to wash with.  If you want to drink the water we recommend that you boil it. A composting toilet is a short walk away.

James and Jen's property is absolutely gorgeous! It is one of the nicest places we've camped, with plenty of space and beautiful surrounds. You definitely feel like you're in the country, with minimal road noise and the occasional hum of distant farm animals. James and Jen were also amazing hosts, being both exceptionally friendly, helpful and with a high degree of individual care. I only wish we could have stayed longer! Definitely recommend a stay

So much work has gone into this camp site.
James is a lovely and considerate host, also.
I visited here for a week in the middle of winter, camped by the little stream, with a nice warm fire. Great times.

Such a great stay! Hosts are very friendly and helpful. The bubbling creek is beautiful and many friendly animals. The surrounding mountains and drive to the location was perfect.

We stayed over the fairly soggy Easter 2021 weekend and still enjoyed ourselves despite the weather. A beautiful and peaceful location. James went above an beyond, an exceptional host, and we would love to return when time permits. 6 out of 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
