Due to it being encircled by bollards and cables, this campground is not suited to camper trailers or camping by your car, though at a pinch you can set up for an overnight in the little used parking area. This site is best suited to bush walkers with the Ruby Creek trail starting from this campground. 4WDrivers will love the 4WD Oberon-Colong historic route to Yerranderie.

The campground features a substantial stone multi-room building that was possibly a forestry headquarters in bygone days, suggested by sealed up toilet and bathroom plumbing, a disused communications mast and remnants of a power supply and telephone cables. Now it is maintained by NSW National Parks as part of the Blue Mountains National Park and is kept in basic but serviceable condition with a fireplace in one large room where hikers and campers can seek shelter should they be caught out in one of the area's renowned icy blasts.

Mount Werong campground is a great base to explore the remote and wild southern Blue Mountains by 4WD, on foot or mountain bike. It's also a popular destination for history buffs and families. Discover a rugged landscape rich in tall forests, wildlife, and both Aboriginal and European heritage.

This area is part of the traditional lands of the Gundungurra and Wiradjuri people, and you may be lucky enough to see Aboriginal rock art sites and grinding grooves.

Close to the campground, Ruby Creek Mine harks back to early pioneering life. You can explore these old mine remnants along the 2.5km Ruby Creek walking track. Learn more about the area's mining history at Yerranderie Private Town, 55km to the east along the 4WD Oberon Colong historic stock route.
