When lighting a campfire, make sure you stick to the following rules: In picnic and camping areas, only light fires in existing fire places. No fires are permitted within pine plantation areas. Only use fallen wood to light your fire never attempt to cut standing timber, whether alive or dead. Before lighting a fire, make sure the surrounding area is clear of leaves and flammable material and always keep plenty of water handy in case of a stray spark. Never leave your fire unattended and fully extinguish your fire with water before leaving.

18/01/2020 Lovely Campground, nice and quiet, had to come via Batlow as South road access closed. Steep and windy but gravel road in excellent condition, towed a 22' semi off road caravan in with no problem.


Travelled through the forestry roads from Batlow - 4WD towing Kedron caravan - roads in pretty good condition. Camping area quiet, fairly clean, long drop toilet fine. BYO firewood if you want a fire - not much available close by.
