My Place Rating: My Rating 5/5

We have camped here twice (in large camper trailer) and stayed in their cabins once. Many of the sites can't accommodate a camper trailer so you need to let them know your requirements when booking. The campground is privately run, but is just inside the National Park (national park fees apply). The park feels like you are in bushland rather than a caravan park. They allow open fires in the BBQ area that each site has (you can buy wood at kiosk for $13 per bag - but can't collect wood as in National Park). We have stayed here in winter (with powered camping site that had no problem running a LARGE heater all night every night) and in Summer. There are Kangaroos, Possums and Currawangs that roam the park (which the kids love - but keep your food sealed!). In winter we used the campground as a base for skiing - it is a 15 minute drive to the ski slopes from Sawpit Creek. In Summer we used it as a base for bushwalking - there are several bushwalks that leave from the park itself and it is only a 30 minute drive to Mount Kosi walk and the must do Blue Lake walk. There is mobile reception which was fine for voice and text messages, but struggled when it came to using internet on a laptop. There is good mobile internet reception (and full town shopping facilities) 15 minutes drive down the mountain in Jindabyne. Amenities are good - VERY HOT SHOWERS untimed and no additional cost are brilliant after skiing. There is a big camp kitchen area with large fireplace and lounges as well as regular cooking facilities. This place is a gem.
