Big rigs can park and drive here including 5th wheelers with caution. Ranger station is close by. Walking tracks, picnic tables, bbqs, toilets, no water available for showers, but brake out your old solar shower bags and bring them and hang them up in the shower block on the hooks provided, some tap water available but not for drinking, so bring your own, no mobile phone connection, but there is an old Telstra coin/ Telstra card operated telephone and free limited wifi available at the Ranger station, lots of wildlife about.

Spent 4 nights here. Castle Rock campsite best for motorhomes. Hot showers and flushing toilets appreciated. Water (should be boiled first) available. Most sites level. Only a couple of drive through sites for very big rigs. Some sites well-shaded, others intermittently shaded. Good bush walking with walks from easy to strenuous. Lots of kangaroos and birds. Wildflowers beautiful early Nov.
