Skip, There is Lake Cressbrook, north of Esk. The campground is adjacent to the water. The dam can only be used for fishing.

Has some of the best camping facilities, toilets, showers, camp kitchen, fish cleaning table.

Here some pics. They were taken about 4 years ago.

Ok,

Here some other suggestions

Sharp park, Canungra, had some good swimming holes.

Boreen Point, north of Noosa

Andrew Drynan, use to have a decent waterhole, its been a while.

All have conventional toilets, Boreen has showers

There are some write ups in Aust Park Review section.

Bigriggen Park, just outside of Rathdowney down Beaudesert way...not quite an hour and half from Brisbane, great place for the whole family.
Heaps of room and lots to keep the little ones occupied.
I just love it.

Island Reach at Imbil is situated on Yabba Creek and has fishing, swimming and canoeing.

There is a basic amenities block with flush toilets and hot showers and small laundry.

They do not have a website, you can call either Tony, Jim or Mary-Anne on 07 5484 5247

Buy the Qld National Parks and State Forests camping guide if it is still in publication and I cant see why it wouldnt be. Its an excellent ready reckoner and tells you what facilities are available, if you are allowed a campfire ect... It isnt a glossy coffee table book full of pics but has all the facts you need. Its available (or used to be) at most good camping stores
I absolutely love downunder and want to see all of it, especially the outback
