Large campground on the Blackwood River with boat ramp.

The campground is large with plenty of shade from mature native trees. The surface is level, mostly compacted dirt, and suitable for tents, caravans and camper trailers.

Unfortunately camping along the river edge is no longer permitted, but it is only a short stroll to the water from the campsite.

There is a basic single lane boat ramp.

Pets are allowed provided they are kept on a leash at all times.

Cold showers and flushing toilets, as well as BBQ/Picnic tables are provided.
