An attractive, quiet, well maintained camp, if rather formal.
The designated sites are generally well spaced with wattles and shrubs between, but mainly designed for car/tent camping (parking short depth, often not level, distant from fire place and table).
The level bus park assumes tent camping on the open common. All roads are well formed gravel, grass is mown each morning by wallabies.
There are 20 designated parking bays, 25+ tent sites, 20 tables, 10 fireplaces (share) and 3 toilet blocks, a shelter in the "common", limited tank and ample bore water. Five of the sites are in a "gas stove only" area, with less shade or privacy.
BYO firewood. Reportedly 'bush showers'.
Popular with school groups and likely to be crowded in peak periods. May be hot in summer.
Located on a former thryptomene farm many sites are shaded by 3 large pines, Yellow Gums or young wattles and a field of thryptomene and wattle slopes up to sandstone cliffs behind the site.
Bookings can be made over the phone or internet.
Permits are available at Brambuk the National Park & Cultural Centre in Halls Gap or by credit card by phoning the Centre on (03) 5361 4000.
