Large, flat, grassy, free campsite on the edge of the Cooyar Creek, with no facilities.
The campground is right near the suspension bridge (Swinging Bridge) Over the Cooyar Creek. It is a very large flat and grassy site, suitable for caravans or tent based camping. There are some large scattered trees for shade, but most of the sites are open (handy if you are recharging your solar batteries I suppose).
There are some powered sites (fee applies - pick up key from the pub) and showers (again a small fee) available at the pub. Toilets are available a short distance away behind the pub.
There is also a playground, covered picnic tables and wood barbecues. Bring your own firewood.
Swinging Bridge is free, unless you want one of the powered sites.
This is a free camping area.
No bookings are needed, it is usually fairly quiet and there is quite a bit of room, so you shouldn't have too many problems finding a spot.
