Information

Kenilworth Sate Forest is approximately two hours north of Brisbane in the headwaters of the Mary Valley. The State Forest is not far south of the town of Kenilworth and coming from Brisbane the turn-offs are to the left. There are two roads into this park and they are not very far apart.
The State Forest is about 20,000 ha and contains two major camping precincts with four actual campgrounds. The major campgrounds are:

· Charlie Moreland Camping and Day Use Area S26 36.957 E152 39.040

· Booloumba Creek Camping and Day Use Area

The campgrounds all have good toilets, are well maintained, with fireplaces and good drinking water available.The park has a large loop road around it, this road can take 1 hour to go around and has some Forest Park walks and highlights on the way. The road is marked as two-wheel drive but it could be pretty tricky in a two-wheel drive in the wet. The Booloumba Creek campgrounds are closest to the first entrance if coming from Brisbane and the Charlie Moreland campground is closest to the second entrance.
