About the host, Nicole And Steve Crack
Member since July 2016
Hey all, we are a cpl late 40's that did the tree change and moved from Central coast NSW to the beautiful Macleay valley to open our camp grounds. We love camping and love seeing others enjoy a night out here on the river. We just love the the bush. We are people persons who love a chat, ask Steve about the secrets of the Carrai across the river but only if you want to sleep at night, lol. Anyhow happy camping and we hope to meet many of you over the years to come.

This was a lovely campground, riverside with pretty good access, green and shady with clean flush toilets and hot showers. Miles of room between campsites. Friendly host, very relaxing break

Great spot and fantastic hosts. Both kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed the river, would be great if the access was slightly improved.
