“We Love Murrindindi Scenic Reserve”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We love camping at Murrindindi - and we've done a lot of camping. I enjoy having a wire fenced area to yourself, where no-one else can set up camp right on top of your own! There are trees/bushes in between sites to create a bit of privacy. The flushing toilet is a highlight for me, I've done a lot of camping with pit dunnies and even made our own, so this is a little luxury. We live within an hours drive, so to find such a peaceful spot close by is a bonus. The walking tracks are well laid out, and the river is beautiful. Most sites have a fire pit with a cooking plate, etc. There is ample wood to make a campfire. All the parks are well signed - we've stayed in Suspension Bridge and Bull Creek so far. I liked Suspension Bridge, cos the walk to the river to collect water was much easier. For $7 a night - who can complain! Seemed to be a lot of families camping too - which makes you feel safer. Who needs doof doof music and loud disrespectul behaviour, when all you want to do is relax and enjoy the great outdoors. The Ranger drives by regularly, which is a comfort. Thank you for giving us such a lovely, affordable place to experience camping.

“Left sitting inside a fence for heavens sake!!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Just returned from camping here. Only stayed one night because EVERY campsite has a stupid fence around it on 3 sides!!

If I wanted to camp inside a fence - I'd camp in my backyard.

Obviously the "camp ground designers" never go camping.

The reserve is 850 acres - so why do we have to sit inside a fence for heavens sake????

“Babbling Creek”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Murrindindi Scenic Reserve has something for every camper. We took our caravans and stayed in the Blackwood Camp, close to the river, not far to the dump toilets. They have done extensive work here since the fires and opened up various camping areas (6 seperate locations) for both the caravaners and the campers. Sites are well defined and there is a walk to suit all abilities. All in all a beautiful place and well worth a visit. NB A fee is payable for an overnight stay but very inexpensive and it will help preserve the area.
