Great campground with a few nice walks right from the campground. The campground has toilet facilities and fire pits near the campsites. Not far from Wiseman's Ferry and if you come from that way you and your car can take the ferry across.
The locals call this campsite "Mozzie Creek". The creek is stagnant, and there is no access to swimming locations or fresh water. The windy loos stink worse than anything I have ever experienced, and sites 10-14 are immediately next to the stench. When you book online, you are automatically assigned a campsite, but you can call up at any time and get it changed. If you are with Telstra, you might even be able to call NSW OEH from the campsite, if you don't like the spot you've been given (no Optus reception), and the staff are really friendly and accommodating. However, we had a fantastic time. Firstly, the campsite was clean, other campers were considerate and experienced (no late nights or litter), and it wasn't too densely packed (NSWP&WS constructed mounds between each site, adding physical barriers between sites). We were able to move from site 12 (next to toilets) to site 24 (I think), which was GREAT. We ended up going for a swim, shower and sh-sh- toilet break at Del Rio resort (for $10 per person, I think), two ferry rides away. Firewood was easily gathered, the fire pits were easy to manage, and the public BBQ was adequate. Mosquito larvae ridden rainwater was great for washing dishes without impacting our own freshwater supply. Protips: * When booking, study the campsite map, and phone them up (even if you have booked online) to choose a spot furthest from the toilets. * Bring your own fresh water * Bring only a small amount of kindling and firewood: about a 1/4 bag of each per night. Logs and twigs are aplenty.
Great camping spot. Beautiful outlook to skyscraper sandstone clifftop and loads of wildlife. Couple of issues: (1) the windy-loo smells awful and isn't working effectively, and you need to book a camp spot away from it; (2) the locals call it 'Mozzie Creek' for a reason, so bring plenty of Bushman's or Aerogard. Adjacent bushwalk trail isn't that exciting, so go further afield. Tip: the creek is stagnant, so not a swimming opportunity, so go to Del Rio Resort and pay to use the pool on a very hot day!
Mill Creek campground has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
