Free camping in the remains of an old mill town, suitable for caravans.
Grimwade was a mill town, but all that is left of the old town site is some footings and scattered remnants.
You can easily see where the houses once stood, with remnant gardens and fruit trees.
There are numerous large, flat, accessible areas big enough to park a 4WD and the largest of caravans.
Grimwade does not have any amenities so you need to be self-sufficient.
Bring food and clean water, your own portable cooking fire (especially during the summer fire ban), and rubbish bags.
There are no rubbish bins so please take your rubbish home with you.
This is a free camping area.
