AMENITIES. There are toilets and showers - basic but adequate like most scout facilities.

DOGS are welcome & must be on  a lead at all times, droppings collected. WARNING: This is adjacent to a working cattle property. The farmer does NOT tolerate dogs annoying his livestock - he has been known to shoot stray pet dogs.

RUBBISH. Please take your rubbish with you.

ACTIVITIES. The water level in the dam at present is very low. It is about 15 minutes to Gatton or Lowood (different directions) for the paper, pub & local farmer's produce.

Welcome morning tea around 10.30am on Saturday.

Come sit & relax with a bunch of like minded people. Check the modifications others have done to their camper trailers to make camping life all that more enjoyable. You might meet as complete strangers on the Friday evening, but will part old friends such is the camaraderie.

You do not need a camper trailer to attend. Members without a camper are more than welcome to come along & get a first hand unbiased opinion of a particular camper trailer from their owners. Come along & meet the faces behind the typing. You are also very welcome to drop in for the day.

Please keep in mind that the group owners will not accept any responsibility for members & non-members actions during the weekend get together. If you decide to attend, it is solely at your own responsibility, including any side trips or outings during the weekend meet.
