The Nelson creek campsite is an interesting place with lots of bush-walks, gold mining relics and a well constructed children's playground. The site is large and offers several camping areas but it is also a bit uneven with plenty of boggy hollows to avoid. The facilities are basic with flushing toilets and drinkable water. There is also a dump station onsite. Good value for $6 per person per night.

Initially was going to stay at Iveah Bay, but it was car park type camping. So glad we drove the extra 30 odd kilometres. This place is so well maintained. Flushing toilets, wood supplied and beautiful walks. Unfortunately some people stayed without paying. Heaps of room for privacy. Definitely recommend, and if you have kids there is a fantasic play ground area. Support the community for this great place. Only $5 per person.

Great stop-over. Nice campground with minimal sandflies next to a large, winding creek. One block of flush toilets with wash station; hot showers available at the motel across the road for $4pp. Campground has plenty of room for parking, with some picnic tables and fire pits available, also has a play structure and flying fox. Suggested nightly camping cost $6pp / $15 family. Would stay again.

Awesome spot with toilets and BBQs plus a small kitchen area. Had dinner at the Nelson Creek pub across the road - very friendly owners. good selection of beers. Probably a better spot for camper vans as ground was very rocky which made it harder but not impossible to pitch a tent.

This place is really worth it. It is big, has green grass to pitch tents, toilets, sinks, a nice playground. Plus, the manager was so helpful and kind: I called him because my car battery had died during the night. Despite the heavy rain, he came to the campground and jump started my car in the early morning.

One of the best unpowered spots we've camped at so far! River next to you, opportunities to make a fire, flushing toilets, anything you need. Showers available at the hotel for four dollars (donation for campground says should be minimum five dollars, considering how cheap that is, absolutely reasonable price for shower).
Would stay again!
