The location is suitable for Caravans, Camper Trailers, Camping beside my vehicle, and Tents.
Capertee campground is a great spot for your campsite and, with campfires permitted in fireplaces, is just as suitable for winter camping as it is for summer. When Capertee River is running, enjoy a swim on a warm day or a walk along its banks. If you’re keen on birdwatching, take along your binoculars to get a closer look at woodland birds as black cockatoos screech overhead as though vying for your attention. The area is also ideal for hiking and cycling. Capertee campground lies just to the north of the historic Capertee Homestead and Capertee Woolshed ruins.
Unsealed road/trail – 2WD vehicles – All weather..
