Explore the Grose Valley, with its sheer sandstone cliffs, waterfalls and scenic walking, or enjoy the famous views of the Three Sisters.

Has a couple of bushwalks, and some interesting history behind the area. The campground gets busy, when we stayed in August we shared the area with 5 other camp sites on a Saturday night and 2 other campers on a Monday night so I imagine that in warmer weather it would get quite crowded. Ranger patrols during the week. The area gets very busy with day trippers. You can camp next to your vehicle. Water is available from the creek (not potable) There is a modern drop toilet available (a windy loo) Being a National park you are not meant to collect wood from the area but you can see where people have destroyed whole trees with chainsaws. No rubbish bins provided. One of the walks ends in a grotto and waterfall that has a glow worm population though last time I went we took the long dark walk at night and didnt end up seeing any. 4wd access only into the Burralow.

Went there for the long weekend with mates. The road into the camp site is long about 20min and a real 4x4 is needed. We used a Subaru forester and it made it. Has a few nice walks we didn't get to see them all and its was pretty busy even at winter with about 5-6 families. Wasn't too much colder, the fire pits helped. Bring own wood but if needed there are a few spot where you can "find" some wood if needed.

I have just been to the camp today and need to report there is no water or pic-nic tables. There is a creek but do not know if it is drinkable even after boiling it. Shared drop toilet is still there
