Large, grassy and fairly open camping area in Hanging Rock State Forest

The campground is made up of mainly grassy sites, and surrounded by a mixture of native trees and old pines. There are picnic tables, long drop toilets and wood barbecues.

This campground is probably a good alternative for those with a caravan or large camper as it has more room and larger, more level sites. There is about 8km of good quality dirt road to get in though.
