This is quite a popular camping area, and day use picnic area, with large grassy, well shaded campsites.
There are basic (but clean) toilets, large flat grassed areas suitable for tents. The nearby creek is clean, clear (and cool) but great for a dip on a hot day.
The back drop to the campground is a low hill with regenerated eucalypts which shelters the campground from the wind in bad weather.
Note: Was previously listed as having 10 campsites, but a kind member (ScrubTurkey) has let me know of my typo. It is a large open area with plenty of room, around a large oval.
