Park Size The park is set on 17 acres of what used to be just farming land. There are approximately 100 sites (all grassed, no concrete slabs), as well as a number of bunkhouses, miner’s huts and two-bedroom family cabins. The layout of the park is fantastic, as it leaves a large grassed area in the middle perfect for kids to play, or if you have a group and want to book out the whole park, it gives a great area to congregate. Perfect for car clubs, etc.
Drive Through Sites Yes

Permanents A few
Depending on what you need, it is suitable for both short and long-term stopovers. It’s located convenient to everything around the Victorian High Country. We planned to stay here only 2 days, and ended up staying for a week, and could have stayed for weeks more, we enjoyed it so much.
