Just 600 m from the main access gate, near the day-use picnic area, this site is a great base to explore around the creek area, hike along the Alligator Falls track, or go fishing – all the while keeping an eye out for wildlife such as rock wallabies and brush-tail possums. The campground is only suitable for tents and small campervans. Gas BBQs are located in the day-use picnic area. Tap water needs to be boiled or treated before use. This camping area can be very crowded in holiday periods. Note: the main gate to the camping and picnic area is open 6.30am to 6.30pm daily.
