A popular, little campground, only a short walk from a great swimming hole.

The camping area itself has defined sites and surrounds a central shared use area, with toilets. The sites are fairly small, however they are level and grassy and separated by native bush, so you don't feel like you are camping right on top of your neighbors.

This is a very popular spot though, and can get quite busy at times. You need to book your site in advance and if the weather is warm, it is likely you will see quite a few other campers.

The short walk down to the waterhole and falls is well worth a visit. Please note though that the last section down to the water hole is steep and over rubble, so be careful with the kids.

There is also a shower in the ameneties block, wood fired barbecues (bring your own wood), and picnic tables.
