This is a free campground is 45 km north of Charters Towers and is on the banks of the Fletcher Creek, suitable for caravans.
It is a very large camping area on both sides of the road with toilets on just one side. This campsite is near a river or creek that has some swimming holes.
On our first morning we slept in as it was a particularly long day the day before and this was a great opportunity to catch up on some sleep. Our time here is mostly one of relaxing and recharging our energy levels. We were blessed with warm to hot days though the evening got cook about 4am each day.
We found that some friends, Ken & Wendy were camped on the other side of the road. We caught up with them on one of our big walks up and down the river.
While you are here, make time to visit Charters Towers. We did on our last trip through this area when we were camped at the Macrossan free camp.
