Upper camping section is flat, and the access to the rapids is steep. Lower camping section is gently sloping (flatter towards the end), and access to the deep 'swimming pool' section and rapids is not as steep.
Pick your "site" where ever you require on the entire reserve. Drag over 1/2 a 44 galv drum for your fire pit or ask for a BBQ plate from the manager. Some of the lower sites come with picnic tables. Views over the River and toward Mt Maroon from all sites. Short distance by car to the National Park for walking trails & day visits.
We enjoyed our stay at Flanagans Reserve. It was a little blowy upon arrival and rained overnight, but we thoroughly enjoyed our time onsite and the rain. We wandered over the entire 12 hectares, up and down the River, viewing the rapids and deep water areas, thrilled at the view of Mt Maroon. The sounds of the birdlife and cows was excellent, and the other campers were all very considerate. Onsite interests included bird feeding at the office and the chance to view a platypus along the river. Although not heavily grassed, I'm sure with the recent rains, that it will soon green up nicely.
Whilst we were there some "new to camping" people came in and the manager helped them set up their tent in next to no lighting. We thought this was fantastic and I'm sure they will be returning in the future, because of the "over and above attitude" of the manager.
