Basic bush camping in Main Range National Park, short walk from car.
The camping area is only suitable for tent based camping as the bollards prevent you from driving onto the campsite. It is an open grassy area with no defined sites.
There are some short walks that you can do from the camping area. Tap water is provided (boil before drinking).
Fires are prohibited here so you will need to bring your own fuel stove for cooking.
The campsite can be reached from the Eastern side with a regular 2wd vehicle, but if you want to venture further on West from the campground, it soon turns into a 4wd only track.
Thanks to Laura for the following updates
We camped at Spicers Gap late November last year (2013). It was a lovely quiet camp spot. We were the only ones there. Although the main area has no defined camp sites, there is a few at the back which are and separated by a little bush. There was lovely long and short walks with stunning views that you can start from the campsite itself. No showers, but the toilets were decent. It was a bit of an effort to get our small car up the steep hill (it did not help that the clutch was on its way out!). There was plenty of wildlife around: lots of birds, lizards and bandicoots (I think) which would come around at night.
$5.60 per person per night or $22.40 per family group per night.
