Nestled among peppermint woodland and tuart forest on the banks of Martins Tank lake, this campground was refurbished in 2013.

Four sites are designed for groups of tents or swags together. They have a separate, shared parking area and are for a designated minimum number of persons. They will only be available for selection on the booking form if that minimum number of persons has been selected.
