A loverly spot on a warm day. Easy drive in from Calliope. Suitable for normal vehicles however, once you hit the park boundry, it gets a bit rough but still okay. Due to the narrow roads, not recommended for caravans or campers. You could get away with a small van or camper if you didnt run in to anyone travelling the other way but I wouldnt risk it.
Loverly big grassed campground at Griffirhs creek. Un designated sites. This is kept mowed by a family of horses. They keep their distance.
No facilities other than some fire pits.
The track to the bomber is closed to vehicles now due to erosion. You can walk it but note the distance. The track to Marble water hole is getting close to the same condition. Still open but very rough.

I visited the place last year after spending a week in the Expedition NP. A mate and myself entered the park via the Razorback Spur from Beilba. We were surprised that the developed campsite had no toilets . The track into Betsy was reasonable , however the exit was quiet washed out in place and a AWD with low clearance would have struggled . We exited the park to the south to Cania Gorge . A couple of photo's here https://photos.app.goo.gl/9kD76CpwnvncJmtFA

When exiting the park to the south, if you turn left, then right at the next intersection, it takes you down through the old Monal Goldfields. Track from Kroombit down to Monal road can be pretty ordinary, and Monal road has a pretty steep dirt road range that can be pretty ordinary too. Left onto Dooloo Tops road off Monal Road, and just after descending another steep range, you wind up down at the old Glassford Creek copper refinery. Two 100+ year old chimney's still standing (maybe not for long). Continue on to Monto - Many Peaks road. Only the last road is in any way suitable for towing, and there is a steep range on it too.
