A great little free campground in Dululu (on the Burnett Highway) with free electric barbecues, showers and flushing toilets.
There are a few powered sites available for $10 per night , you will need to get the key from the pub. The power boxes have coloured padlocks and each has a different key. If you want one particular site, make note of the colour before heading over to the pub.
The ground is nice and level and there is some shade from the large gum trees. There are free electric BBQs under a large sheltered area with picnic tables. There are also rubbish bins provided.
Although the campsite is just off the highway, it is fairly scenic with scattered eucalypts and plenty of space.
Although the campground is near the Dee River, I probably wouldn't be fishing in it. There are reports that this is one of the most poluted rivers in Australia. Acid drainage from the old Mt Morgan gold mine (55km upstream) is said to be leaching into the river and causing large fish kills.
Last time I was here, there was no charge for camping, however if you wanted a powered site it was $10. You can pay and get a key from the pub in town
