This is a popular swimming and picnic area not far from Briagolong in Briagolong State Forest
There are large shady campsites, a sheltered picnic area and rubbish bins provided. The creek near here is fairly shallow but the water is cool and clear and suitable for (supervised) children to swim in. Tends to have water when other areas are dry. The large gum trees here provide plenty of shade and the sites are well separated allowing for a bit of seclusion. This is a great spot for family camping as there is plenty of room, lots of grass and good quality amenities (the sheltered picnic areas is a bonus for family meals if the weather turns bad). Thanks to Peter for the following updates. Toilets are flush (water pumped from creek to tank up the hill). Cold showers may function. Facilities include a large, open hall complete with 2 fireplaces. The Freestone Creek features deep pools in a rocky gorge. Combined with a low weir it offers swimming even in a dry summer. Rated 4.2/5
