Welcome to Gold Nugget Creek Camp! If this camp site is booked up, look at Flowering Gum Campsite, it's on the same property and just as nice.

This is a flat spacious campsite nestled in a valley next to the bubbling creek. The kids love to look for stones that have yellow and orange flecks, pretending to find gold. 

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 also 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. There is a shady tree near this campsite. 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 private place to shower using the camp bucket system which is fun! If you want hot water, boil a kettle or use one of the two solar shower bags provided. If you shower at night you can see the stars. A good tip, buy a cheap black bucket with you and leave it in the sun to get warm. A composting toilet is available.

Great spot beautiful flowing creek, clear water. Loved the peace and quiet with the sound of the creek in the background sitting by the fire and going to sleep. Host was amazing!! Toilet and shower easily the best and cleanest I have experienced on a hipcamp campsite

Fantastic, hosts were really lovely people and the site was amazing with plenty of space in between sites. Lots of native wildlife to see and hear like kookaburras in the morning and spotlighting at night to see the freshwater catfish and little freshwater shrimp in the creek. Not far from Nightcap National Park and protestors falls for a day trip either.

We had a great couple of days at Nugget Creek Camp wonderful Hosts sharing their beautiful property. The location is so pretty and enables you to relax listening to the birds and nature at its best. Enjoying the outside on a moonlit night was special so many stars and night noises!
Thanks to our four hosts and your company. We will return to see how high the bamboo has grown.

The beautiful outlook was our backyard for a couple of days.
Looking from our van site including concrete pad across the property down to a little creek.
