Worth a visit!
Another camp ground worth a visit, we stayed 4 nights, plenty of things to do if you like to walk, only 10 km from Pemberton. Interesting trees. Only about 10 caravan sites.

Great spot
A great little camping spot with a fascinating trail of imported trees as well as native species.
It is a shame the camp ground doesn't have more fire pits. The amenities are in good working order and the campsite was clean.

Lovely little camp spot.
