Pretty and free campground on the banks of the Telegherry River (on the opposite bank from the Coachwood camping area).
The campsites are open and grassy, with a few spots offering shade. They are mostly level and suitable for tent based camping or camper trailers.
This is the "bike friendly" campground, so probably should avoid it on weekends if you are not happy with 2-stroke fumes and alcohol fueled noise. Weekdays it is usually empty though.
As with all camping areas in this park, it can get very busy during peak times. The Telgherry River has some nice swimming holes, but if it is busy you may be sharing them.
There are long drop toilets, fire pits and rubbish bins provided. Water can be obtained from the creek, but should be treated before drinking.
No fees are payable for this campsite
