Great place to stay plenty of campspace, Roads are sealed but narrow and no need for booking its first in. Has boat ramp, toilets, Water and fireplaces. The camp grounds are at the start of Talbingo Dam so plenty for the fishmen to escape to. And skiing of course.

Also great walks up through the valley along the road which follows the creek.

The water is very clear and clean,great place for swimming!
