Please note:  this is suitable for tents only.  Turn off Kanglang Road at the GPS point and follow it to the parking area.

There are 20 campsites accommodating 6-8 people per site. All campsites are unpowered and are suitable for tents only. There is no direct vehicle access to the campsites nearby. A 15-minute unloading bay is located close by and a separate carpark is located above and behind the campground just a two minute walk away.

Non flush toilets, shared fireplaces and picnic tables are provided. Dogs are permitted on-lead.

Once you're unpacked and set up, walk the 1km to beautiful Lake Elizabeth. Flooded after a landslip created a natural dam, the lake is scattered with the still-upright trunks of dead trees, giving an eerie atmosphere to the valley. Platypus are sometimes seen early morning and at dusk in the still waters. A host of birds live in the area and Satin Bowerbirds (the male dark satin blue and the female is olive green) are often seen near the camping round. Wrens, robins and grey shrike thrush also visit regularly. You may see glowworms beside this track after dark.

Dogs should be kept on-lead to reduce their impact on native wildlife and to preserve their health and your dogs as snakes are common in this area and its walks. There is poor mobile phone reception here.

Explore the area by walking, canoeing, mountain biking and four-wheel driving. Birdwatching is popular here. The village of Forrest is nearby for supplies and is a major mountain bike trailhead for the area's cycling network.

Advance bookings and payment are required year round.
