No. 1 Camp camping area
Gatherings of horseriders and other large groups often base themselves at No. 1 Camp, which is a spacious open site – you’re likely to have company if you stay here. Turn east on North Mountain Rd at Heathcote Junction on the Hume Fwy, then follow Main Mountain Rd to its intersection with Flowerdale Rd, where the camping area is located.

This campsite is located in Mount Disappointment State Forest
Nestled within the Great Dividing Range to the south-east of Broadford, the Mt Disappointment State Forest was a popular bushwalking, mountain-biking and horseriding area prior to the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, when the region was extensively burnt. By mid-2012 an extensive government-sponsored bushfire-recovery program had been implemented, including the rebuilding of visitor facilities and the reopening of campsites. The regeneration of the forest is also well underway, aided by some wet winters following the bushfires.
