I would like to hear the comments of any recent campers at the above campsite. Thinking of taking 2 caravans in there for the Melbourne Cup 4 day break. Would be interested about the quality of the road in ,is it suitable for mid-size on road vans?.I would imagine it would get very busy that week-end. We cannot camp too far from Melbourne so any other free campsites that anyone may know of not too far away would be of interest. Many thanks to those who may be able to help. Regards johny
I will go anywhere as long as it's forward

Gday
if the Jack Russels slept outside on a chain, you would only need one caravan....

Hi John,

Generally you are able to get to the first camping spot at Frith, where a lot of riders take horse floats in. I wouldn't suggest going much further in with a road van as the roads down to O'Brians crossing can be rocky, corrugated and steep in parts. Off roads bikes frequent the tracks. Feel like a bit of exploring so I'll go and have a look for you tomorrow as I am a local.

Cheers Kerry

Hello Kerry, Many thanks for your reply. We did not intend to go any further than Firth's camp. We just needed a place close to Melbourne for the weekend. Please do not go to too much trouble on our behalf. Many thanks john y

Hi John,
went out to the state forest and drove approx 3 to 4 k's up the track. The first 3 k's was on crushed blue rock and was quite good to travel on however it changed to a clay/rock and was quit rough in parts. I would think twice before taking a road van out on it. Not much room for turn around. If you do go take it very slow. You can check out some of the tracks on google maps street view. Hope this was some help.
Cheers Kerry
