A well established campground on the banks of the Cressbrook Dam, suitable for Caravans

This is popular spot with Bass Fisherman and there is a boat ramp as well as easy access to the water for swimming and fishing right around the shoreline.

The camping sites are large with plenty of grass and are suitable for tents, or caravans. Bring your own firewood for the barbecues.

This is not exactly bush camping, however it is quite an attractive site and the kangaroos come right up to your tent. It's a great spot for a fishing / camping trip with the kids as there is easy access to the water and hot showers to keep others in the family happy.
