This small peaceful campground offers 5 spacious, shady, grassed sites, with toilets and cold showers.

No powered sites but power is available for recharging phones or tablets. Flat easy access for campervans and caravans.

The Channon Village Campground is located at 391 The Channon Rd, The Channon. It is right next to Coronation Park, where the famous Channon Market is held on the second Sunday of every month.

Fireplaces are provided. You can find kindling in the area but it is best to bring your own larger wood. You can also buy firewood for $5 a bag onsite.

There is a small vege/herb garden for you to help yourself to fresh organic greens. There is also a free book exchange

Pets are welcome but they must be controlled because koalas move through at all hours.

The campground is on a working farm surrounded by Rocky Creek and Terania Creek. It is within easy walking distance of The Channon store and tavern, and is on the school bus route from Lismore. Nightcap National Park with its World Heritage rainforest is 15 km away (no camping allowed there).

This is a great camp for cyclists. Ask us about good rides nearby. There is a shady yard for horses.

We like to keep this campground quiet at night so if you are intending to party hard or drink hard then you should give this place a miss.

$10 per person per night; children under 12 y o free.

We have detailed knowledge of the local plants, animals and natural areas and can provide reference books about rainforest. For information on rainforest you can go to our website
