A very pleasant, green, quiet camp situated on a large extended level creekside flat. Short green grass (mown), some shade from willows, black wattles and gums. Located in a narrow mountain valley surrounded by steep sclerophyll forested slopes - mainly peppermint and white trunked Manna Gum.
An old forestry and road camp site.
Very clean with new facilities - 6 BBQs and tables plus separate picnic area.
200m upstream (past picnic area) on a narrow, gravel track is another level, mown, creekside clearing with no facilities
Pit toilets
Access 22k S from Mitta Mitta via Omeo Hwy [C543], on right over creek just before Lightning Creek bridge
