Bush camping (walk-in camping)
Walk-in camping is allowed within the conservation zone that covers most of the park; confirm which areas you can stay in with the rangers. Remember that the river can rise quickly after heavy rain, which will affect crossings and where you choose to camp. Vehicle-based camping is also allowed at some sites outside the 2 official camping areas.

This campsite is located in Lerderderg State Park
This park takes up a Tasmania-shaped chunk of land between Blackwood in the north and Bacchus Marsh in the south. Its centrepiece is the 300 m deep gorge carved out of sandstone by the Lerderderg River. Well-defined walking tracks expose you to goldmining relics and the local koalas, wedge-tailed eagles and swamp wallabies. Main access is via Lerderderg Gorge Rd, which leads off the Bacchus Marsh–Gisborne Rd.
