Paradise found is the slogan for this camp, and how right they are. What a beautifully situated camp this one is, within the foothills of the Mt Thomas Forest Conservation Area, this four star Qualmark park is amongst 12 acres of native bush and has the Ashley Gorge River within its bounds. The campground is part of the Ashley Gorge recreation area and is close to many popular walking tracks and good fishing in the river. Amongst the tent and power sites are many shady trees, lots of room and very peaceful. There is a dedicated pet camping area, none are allowed in the rest of the campground though. A clean, tidy kitchen and dining area has hobs, microwaves and fridge/freezer. Ablutions have excellent showers with funky coloured doors and vanities, and there is an automatic laundry. The standard of cleanliness in this camp is very high, you can tell that hosts Sally and Wayne love what they do. The kids will enjoy the playgrounds and are welcome to bring their bikes, there are also blow up tubes for hire to go down the river on. A great place for larger groups with exclusive use of some facilities available, and one of the added attractions is the late checkout in the off season. Eftpos is available as is wifi, and a good camp shop. All sites are $19 per adult, children are $9.
