An extended riverside flat, well grassed over pink granite sand and shaded by tall Snow Gums and white trunked Manna, Candlebark, and Mountain Gums and a few willows.
Surrounded by step slopes and dry sclerophyll forest. Although the site tracks are bumpy and long grass surrounds the dispersed sites this is a very attractive bush camp beside the broad, rushing Mitta Mitta River.
May also be known as Ferny Flat.
Just after entering the Park at the second gate there is an informal, popular extended grass flat open to the road. At 1k and 1.2k in from the second gate there are rough tracks on the right leading 400m down to informal, secluded riverside sites.
