Nash Creek Campground Upgrades

Nash Creek Campground will be closed until September 2024 while upgrades to the camping facilities are undertaken.

Parks Victoria will be increasing the number of camping sites to accommodate motorhomes and caravans, improving vehicle parking and entry road, treating hazardous trees to make the campground safer for visitors and will be formalising existing sites to protect environmental values. Other facilities such as picnic tables and firepits will also be installed.

Visitors are encouraged to use other campgrounds within Bunyip State Park (such as Mortimer Camping and Picnic Area, Dyers Camping and Picnic Ground and Forest Road Camping Area) and Scout Loop Camping Area in nearby Kurth Kiln Regional Park.
