Mount Morgan is situated on the Dee River, 38 km south of Rockhampton, and is an old gold mining town with lots of history and two museums, a railway and a town history museum. There are plenty of lookouts to see out over the town and the mine site. The Number 7 Dam, the town's water supply, has walking and mountain bike tracks for beginners and the more advanced. 

Drinking water is available, as well as rubbish facilities, laundry and wifi. Pets on leashes are welcome. Campfires are not permitted and there are now toilet/shower facilities so please ensure you are a self-sufficient camper with own amenities. 

Mount Morgan was a mining town. Mining of clay in a nearby hill for the production of furnace bricks commenced soon after that time, continuing until the early 1900s, the resulting man-made caves came to be known as the Fireclay Caverns, which contained large openings that measure between 4–12 metres in height from the cave floor. Dinosaur footprints (preserved as infills) were later found in nine different sections of the Caverns, lining the ceiling dated to the Early Jurassic. 

There is also a community swimming pool, skate park and general playground near the Dee River on Butler St. The town has three pubs, an IGA, and a small general store directly across the street from the camp site. The Grand Hotel is the oldest pub, and is still trading in town.
