You’ll be spoilt for choice at this campground, off Barrington Trail, 12 km south of Barrington Tops Forest Rd. Dip a toe or a fishing line into the Barrington River, strike out on one of several nearby walking tracks, or use it as a base for a spot of scenic drive touring. There are car-based sites here as well as some walk-in sites down the hill close to the river. A pleasant walk goes from here around Edwards Swamp and on to Careys Peak’s expansive views. There is also the Aeroplane Hill Track, which goes to Black Swamp walk-in camping area. Mountain-biking on the fire trails can be fun, with access back to the Scone–Gloucester Rd, or on up to Mt Barrington. Bring firewood, gas/fuel stove and drinking water. Note: 4WD access only, closed to vehicles June–Sept.
