Great little spot, turned up in the middle of a busy long weekend and managed to get a good place to park the old Bedford. Beautiful clear river to swim, great place to take your dog too.

Absolutely loved this place! Was a beautiful well maintained area! Drop toilets, rubbish bins, nice grassy flat areas, heaps of room and a beautiful creek right there! Only a short drive away from a pub down the road too! We stayed here while looking for free accommodation while exploring Coffs Harbour!

This place was lovely! There was plenty of space to pitch our tents without being overly close to our neighbours, it was a wonderful place to set up camp for a night. The large grassy area was perfect for lots of campers and vans. Overall this location was really great. The toilets were fairly clear and well maintained, which a small hand washing sink but no drinkable water so make sure that you bring your own. Plus while we spent the night there a guy was playing guitar and it sounded really great. A personal favourite was the space was open enough to be able to have the perfect view of the stars on a clear cloudless night.
