Information

Two pleasant camping areas separated by an old charcoal kiln.
The formal site west of the kiln has 4 well spaced parking areas each fenced but slightly sloping, with access to a grassed picnic area with 6 tables, 2 fire places (broken) and pit toilets.
To the east of the kiln is an informal open area with good horse yards and pit toilets.

Both sites are surrounded and shaded by a dry sclerophyll mixed forest of Messmate Stringybark, Yellow Box, Narrow-leaved Peppermint with an understory of wattle, Tea-tree, heath, sedge and hakea.
Birds are plentiful, including kookaburras and rosellas, as are flies. Koalas and wombats may be sighted.

A small dam adds to attractiveness of this picnic and camping ground.
