Gum Tree Lodge & Bush Camping is more than a campground, it’s a camping experience. Hosts George & Debbie are very welcoming and the grounds offer powered & unpowered sites some with their own waterfront deck over the dams. You must be self contained as there are no showers and toilets but there is a dump point on site. The grounds are a work in progress for George and Debbie but they definitely want to keep it low key for the lucky travellers who discover it. Highly recommended for a relaxing friendly atmosphere at a very reasonable price.
