Located within the Danbulla National Park and State Forest, Downfall Creek campground offers uninterrupted water views as you are camped on the banks of Lake Tinaroo. Popular water sports here are fishing, waterskiing and swimming.

There is a short walk (2.4km) to the Kauri Creek camping area. Called the Regeneration Walk, interpretative signage explains the different tree species and how the landscape has evolved and transformed since the dam was built.

The camping area is 7km from the western entrance and 21km from the eastern entrance, on Danbulla Road.
Most of Danbulla Road is unsealed but it is accessible to all vehicles.

Pre-booking is advised. The self-service kiosk at this park has been decommissioned.

Visitors need to book their camping permit before they visit. Book online, at an over-the-counter booking office or by phone.

Bring your own or buy firewood before entering the park. Facilities include
flushing toilets, shower room (bring own shower), taps and individual fire rings.
