There are two campgrounds at Border Ranges, Sheepstation Creek and Treetops. Both have bollarded off camping areas, suitable for tent camping, but little space for Camper trailers etc. The road is a narrow dirt road, but got around ok in 2WD Berlina.

Facilities include toilets, kichen area and firewood was supplied (last time I visited was Feb 2005). It can be wet at times because of its altitude, so keep your firewood in a dry spot.

There is also one of the best lookouts at the Pinnacle (near treetops), with a gret view of Mt Warning and the Tweed Valley.

Everyone, feel free to add comments and photos of you have been.

Hi Troy,
Very nice location, but your lack of information demands extra photos...
That doesn't encourage me to go there at all.

What about all the walks?
Image
A: Like the all day return Booyong walk!
Image
B: The view of Mt Warning you mentioned earlier
Image
C: And most of all, the waterfall and swim hole only 15 mins
casual walk from Sheepstation creek campsite!

Did you forget all that? :D

Troyk,

Many thanks for your post and pics. It was great to see someone take the time and effort to post pics up. Thanks also for your efforts and organising the trip with everyone.

Art,

Your posts are more than welcome. Perhaps more constructive criticism (ie. positive) would be nice. Even an intro for your second post before you start putting down the posts of those that contribute GREATLY to this forum. You obviously have some knowledge to share but people will be put of by the way you come across if your post is common for you.

Just an attempt at humor is all ;) maybe a poor attempt...
I've already assumed the original poster didn't go on the walks,
or pics of the campsite would have taken second place.

Sorry if it comes across as anything other than that..
my smiley was invalid too.. makes it look worse.

Art, no worries.

From memory I was responding to a post from someone who wanted to know what a number of campgrounds were like, so I started a new thread for the purpose of people adding to it, as it was the only time I had been there.

You were right I didn't do the walks, mainly as my daughter would only have been 18mo at the time and my wife doesn't like the idea of sitting in the car with kids while I wonder off. For some strange reason. :?

Anyhow we were only doing the drive to the pinnacle, which I have to say is pretty spectacular. We do plan to return to a few days at some stage.

Certainly understandable.
To tell you the truth, the Booyong walk is beautiful, but the last 18Ks
is the same as the first 2Ks, so it gets a little same old.
I reckon a healthy person could carry an 18mth old to the waterfall though ;)
