It’s a case of better the devil you know at this simple campground, on Barrington Tops Forest Rd, west of the Dilgry Circle Rd turn-off. With its lofty 1400 m vantage point, it’s all about the views: spectacular subalpine forest, picturesque farmland at the foothills, and Devils Hole Lookout just across the road. At the lookout are picnic facilities, toilets and fireplaces; bring your own firewood and drinking water.
