This campsite is located in Ben Lomond National Park
Ben Lomond is a Tolkienesque world of sheer dolerite cliffs, scree slopes and swirling mists. Winter snows attract skiers, while in all seasons there are splendid lookouts and scenic walks for those brave enough to tackle the drive up Jacobs Ladder, a steep switchback road leading to the park’s alpine heart. June–Sept all vehicles must carry snow chains.
