Chinamans Camp Area - Mt Cole State Forest

Free Camping - Victoria


Chinamans Campground is a fantastic free camping area within the Mount Cole State Forest - a beautiful scenic area with amazing views, popular for camping, horse riding, four wheel driving, walking and picnicking.

This well equipped campsite is also dog friendly, as dogs are permitted within the Mount Cole State Forest if on a lead.

A large central shelter contains sturdy wood-slab picnic tables and an open fireplace, and is a great spot for a picnic lunch.

The shelter is surrounded by a large clear area with multiple campsites. Picnic tables, fire pits and wood fire barbecues are scattered throughout the campground, and a toilet block provides non-flush toilets. 

A horse pen is available for visitor use.

Mount Cole is located close to the gorgeous Mount Buangor State Park, which contains many treasures including the spectacular Ferntree Falls (if you head over for a look, please note that dogs are not permitted within the Mount Buangor State Park)
