Lucy's Gully - Camping under the trees.


It's a tight driveway up, suited to smaller vehicles. But Lucy's Gully has a couple of nice camping spots beneath the trees.

A bit sad to see all the trees cut down on the drive up, however up the top was perfect for us. We laid in the grass after sunset and it was the best night sky EVER! The toilets were in a state however.... hopefully this is not a standard for this place.

Very nice spot, but only for van sized vehicles. Narrow road to reach this place. Has 2 flush toilets. Sheltered, very quiet and secluded. No cell phone coverage. Beautiful redwood walk with lots of birds to look at.

We arrived late at night and was one other vehicle there. Creepy place at night. Lots of noises like possums hissing. Trees falling down on vehicle . Beautiful in the light of day.

Good place for walking and chilling out under the big Redwood Trees when it's hot. It's a very tight road in a larger vehicle. Best for van sized campers. Space for around 4 vehicles max. It seems like the sort of place where local youth congregate on a weekend for a kiss and a cuddle.
