Nice camping area. Some space near trees otherwise large open grass field for 30+ campers. Please donate. Camp site run by locals to support community activities. Friendly Nelson Hotel pub a quick walk up to main street and cold beer. Beautiful Callhoughn trail from camp ground with great vistas.

By donation campground inside little town. One of our favourite sites during our trip. Right on a creek set for swimming with warm weather. Small rock face to jump into water from. Little cave across stream to explore. And a little zip line there as well! Large area, some coverage. Nice full toilet facility. Large sink for dishes, etc. rubbish/recycling bins. Don't think directions were quite right (our first attempt at finding took us down a dirt road with a sign marked "Try Again Rd", the correct turn-off is a little ways south of that). No one else there in April. Beautiful place to stay, highly recommended!

Perfectly functional campsite in a lovely location with really interesting walks through historic gold mine workings. Rusty relics from those pioneering times add to the interest. (Torch could be handy for exploring the deep mining trenches some of which are actually caves). Lovely river for swimming and gold panning. This is a community run campsite that is maintained by the locals to fund local projects and improve the campsite. As of March 2013 they were planning to instal a shower block and barbecue unit. What is really nice is that they charge by donation even though it's way better than many commercial sites. Hopefully people donate accordingly and it will encourage other communities to provide similar facilities. Right next to the pub for community integration!
