A reasonably pleasant camp, if it is not crowded or the weather is not too hot.

A sandy clearing with an adjacent large graveled car park which has limited shade.

Recently re-developed, the facilities (large shelter with 4 BBQs, tank, 5 benches, 2 BBQs, composting toilet) are good. Exposed to regular traffic on Plantation Tk although recent plantings may eventually improve privacy.

Rated 3.3/5

Popular horse riding camp.

Surrounded by a White Ironbark forest with an understory of wattle, brush and wildflowers.

There is a wide variety and quantity of small birds, plus flies. Wildflowers in spring.

An unusual feature is a flourishing grove of Sandalwood (NSW rainforest).
