Pine Glades (the private and sheltered spot) is just simply idyllic. Decent shade from both the morning and afternoon sun, ample tree coverage to provide that privacy and feeling of solitude, yet only a 5 minute stroll to the most gorgeous of swimming holes.
If you do not feel like walking to the main swimming hole at the end of the rapids, you can simply access what is, effectively, your own private part of the river directly from this campsite by simply navigating a fence and a short walk.
this part of the river is great for a refreshing dip without venturing too far from your site, but due to the trees that are currently down across the river, if you want to float down the rapids to the swimming hole (highly recommended!), you will have to walk a bit further along the bank past the hazards.
Quiet, solitude, other respectful campers and a very helpful host make this one of the best places we have ever camped.

We loved the campsite. Firewood was provided with plenty more along the riverbank from previous floods. The swimming in front of the site is fantastic. We camped in swags and just lay and looked up at the stars. We will be back!

Dawn from the campsiteA simple setup with swags and a firePerfect spot for a swimThere is an underwater rock ledge on the other bank - perfect height to sit in the water

Loved your review Steve. Thank you. I confess I can't take credit for the firewood, that was left by the lovely people before you. Looking forward to what amazing things you uncover on your next visit. 😊

The perfect place to escape and recharge!. Caroline was so lovely, warm and friendly and very welcoming with a wealth of local knowledge. I had the whole place to myself and trully felt like it was my little patch of paradise for the week that I was there. Beautiful large flowing swimming hole and sandy bank and a number of good flat grassy and shady campsites with firepits to choose from.

Hi Annette, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I was so happy to read in your private message that you felt safe and comfortable being out there on your own. Though your lovely dogs no doubt helped with that as well. Look forward to having you back. All the very best to you, Annette. 😊

We loved this place. Right next the river so calm, peaceful and relaxing. Great swimming hole for when it warms up. Can’t wait to go back. So easy to find if you follow the great directions that are supplied. Caroline the host was so lovely to deal with and easy to talk to. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting some quiet time away.

Hi Karly, Thank your for your wonderful review and your support for our magical, little spot. It's such a thrill to share the place with others and for them to love it as much as we do. So nice to get to meet you and your group on Sunday. Looking forward to hearing your feedback when your next visit and get to enjoy the swimming hole in warmer weather. Until then, take care. 😊

Getaway on a private river beach

Cold! Absolutely freezing! but amazing and beautiful. We had a private spot on the other side of the property to where the entrance to the beach was and loved it. Only one other couple there who were 2nd or 3rd time visitors and they were super friendly and couldn't see them from where we were. Can't wait to go back in summer when we can swim in the river. Only disappointment was we could only go for 1 night as it was raining heavily the first night we were supposed to be there. Thanks Caroline!
