There used to be a little camping spot at the top of Spicers Gap, enter from the dam and travel up over cunninghams but on the old Bullock train pass of Spicers Gap.

Not too sure about camper trailer, it did have the bollards in place to separate the veh from the campers, pain in the butt for camper trailers!

Otherwise you can camp at the dam I think?? Correct me if Im wrong, been years since I left QLD!!!

Goodluck! Matt.

Goomburra's worth a look, either Gordon's Country or further up in the State Forest.

Turn off the highway at the Rest and Revive and follow your nose.

Hi Paul,

CLICK HERE and you will be taken to Janowen Hills website. This is also in the Goomburra area so you turn off at the Driver Reviver area as described earlier to get there. The park offers good camping, 4x4 activities, a local small shop for essentials, good amenities etc and is well worth a look. It is owned and run by the Lowrance family.

One thing to note here though is that they don't allow one 4wd on any of the tracks alone. They work on a buddy system for safety so if you aren't with anyone else they won't let you on the tracks. It also can be very chilly there at this time of year but open fires are allowed.

Several very good sites at Goomburra. Turn at the permanent Driver Reviver shed , and follow the signs. About 24 k from the Goomburra Hall.
Half way down is a small shop. Nearby is a 4wd park. Good if you want 4wd tracks.
Further on is the 'Goombura Forest Camping Ground' previously known as Bikers Dream camp site. Excellent facilities & grounds; very safe for young families.
Between this and the end of the road is Gordon Country. Many sites beside creeks.
At the end of the road is the State Forest.
only. Permanent mountain stream; bird life every where.

Another option is Queen Mary Falls campground. A little distance but great site.
If you include the drive through the Condamine gorge, you have a brilliant trip.

Hope this helps with the options.............Regards,
