Cooks Mill Camping Area (Cathedral Range State Park)


Cooks Mill Camping Area (Cathedral Range State Park)

A shady campground by the river, Cooks Mill Camping Area sits on the site of an old sawmill that operated in the 1940s to 1950s. Explore the nearby Heritage Site or meander through Manna Gum forest along The Friends Nature Trail or Little River Walk where you might spot a koala snoozing above.

Fit hikers can try one of the harder walks to the peaks of the North or South Jawbone for unforgettable views over the Cathedral Range. There is also great rock climbing at nearby North Jawbone, South Jawbone and Sugarloaf Peak.

Cooks Mill has sites suitable for tents, campervans and a small number of caravans. Pit toilets, fireplaces, picnic tables and shelters are available. Firewood collection is prohibited and no drinking water is available, so please bring your own. No bins are provided. Please take all rubbish home with you for recycling or disposal. Camping fees apply and prebooking is required.

Visitor Tips Do not camp under or near large trees. Branches may fall and swing away from the tree at any time.
