Big Hill Campground

Last Updated Dec 2014

Big Hill has toilets Big Hill has picnic fireplaces There are bbqs available at Big Hill

This is a small, fairly open campground suitable for tent based camping

Be careful deciding to camp here after wet weather as the ground can get quite boggy. There is not a lot of grass coverage and most of the sites have a slight gradient to them, so finding a level spot to pitch a tent can be a bit challenging.

It is a beautiful spot however, set amongst tall straight eucalyptus and surrounded by ferns. It is also usually fairly quiet (probably due to the lack of amenities) which makes it attractive in itself. The nearby coastal camping spots seem to attract a lot more people.

There is no water available here, so you will need to bring your own. You will also need to bring your own firewood.

Thanks to Peter for the following additions...

Pleasant, green, ridge top bush camping high in the Otway Range, without views.

A sloping grassed (short) clearing, shaded by surrounding Mountain Ash and Manna Gum forest with a dense understory of scrub with some tree ferns. Features a small dam and a couple of level spots. Bush camping without fires. Rated 3.7/5
