Pitch your tent right on the big dam at Milo Downs farm, the perfect place to enjoy the sunset with views of the escarpment behind the local town of Kandos.

The location takes you a short drive down the railway line between the two towns and arrives at a shared camping site not far from town.

The big dam has been the favourite to swim in, its clean and quite shallow for its size so it stays very warm and has a deeper section at the far side for some better swimming room. 

Fires must be contained to fire pits and are not permitted otherwise.

The space has a self composting pit toilet that is environmentally friendly.

Had a beautiful spot in full sun. Just ideal for cool autumn days and cooler nights. No mozzies or flys, big bonus!!
Nice flat mown area where we had a fire every night.
Was dog friendly and others staying on opposite side of dam had 3 dogs that obviously had a ball.
Great view of night sky for star gazers.
Just a side note about the Rylestone community and facilities...very accommodating and friendly.
Waste dump, topped up water and did sone washing, for a small fee.
Great op shops both here and Kandos
Thanks Angus

Thanks Angus. What a peaceful, relaxing time I had. I was the only one there by the dam and felt very secure knowing the camping area had its own secure gate with code.

Lovely site with shady trees grassy clearings. Only 10 mins to either Kandos or Rylstone which is very convenient if you need to restock or just want a meal away from camp.

We loved our stay here at Milo Downs! Great directions and beautiful relaxing spot. Was private and well set up with a fire area which was great for cooking on. Would love to stay again. Thanks for having us!

This place was brilliant! Angus met us when we arrived, we had a great chat, and he provided some little tips. We were after some downtime and just us, and that's what we got. The amenities were perfectly clean and tidy. The view over the dam is just amazing - in the morning, throughout the day and in the evening. Some good little walks also to mix things up, but i have to say the location is brilliant and we will definitely be back
