Hi all just want to let you know that i have been in the MT Trio Bush camping & caravan park for the last 6 weeks & am about to leave on wednesday,& to let you that it is a very good place to stay as it has all the ameities,shower toilets,camp kitchen (with the works)small games room (table tennis)& on about 27acres behind there farm.
The owner/hosts are John & Margo Byrne (nice people).
It also would be a good spot for anyone who would like to do a group style gathering,as you are close to all the good Mountain walks & can have campfires.

I have no affiliation with this place, just a very pleased customer.

Cheers,Expletive.

Hi Expletive. I think we had the pleasure of your company for a couple of nights around the campfire at Mt Trio. We had the white Magna S/wagon and the wind-up Jayco Flamingo (and too much wine) and you had the big Ford and the swag.
Really enjoyed meeting you, and hope the rest of your travels go well and safely. We can certainly support your comments on Mt Trio. Top spot.
Cheers, Tony and Maggie

Hi Expletive

It sounds the one friends of ours stay at and enjoy.

What numbers do you think could be comfortably accommodated for a group event?

Hi Motherhen,at the moment i think you could possibly do up to 30-50 cars but would check with the hosts for sure as they do at the moment have 3 showers & toilets but they have just got aproval to extend those amenities & there are 6 powered sites,having said that a lot of people are quite self sufficient as in having these items on board with them.
you may remember me as zookscooter.

Cheers Bob.

Hi Expletive,

We stayed there last year for a few nights in the unpowered part when we were travelling around in WA in our van and just loved it. A very friendly place,and convenient for doing walks in the National Park.

Regards,

Heather

I use to live down there when I was a youngster 9 -12 yrs old and we use to climb those hills around there, I'm not sure where the camp ground is but by the way people talk about it on here it sounds as though it could be at the back of the farm called 'Warrengup', (spelling?) if that is so then that is the farm Dad use to manage until my parents bought the farm in Cranbrook which is further along the western end of the Stirlings.
We went for a run along there a couple of months ago whilst we were down that way and found they had named the hill which we knew as Warrengup (which the farm was named after) to Mt Trio, one of the hills further west along Salt River Road was named Mt Trio back then, I don't know why the changes, can anyone on here enlighten me on this????

Cheers
