Caravanners and camper trailer owners will find it easier to unhitch at an iconic camp in Mansfield State Forest from November, now that refurbishments at Carters Mill Campground are underway.
The five new campsites and site levelling and landscaping works will cost 80,000.
“Once competed, we hope the upgrades will encourage more visitors to the area by providing additional campsites which are easy to access,” explains Scott Edwards, Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMVic), Goulburn District District Manager.
IDEAL FOR ACCESSING EPIC HIGH COUNTRY
Carters Mill Campground is near the Delatite River and close to Plain Creek Walking Trail, Epic Mountain Bike Trail, Mt Buller and Mt Stirling.
“Works will commence this week and will take FFMVic crews and contractors approximately one month to complete,” says Scott.
The site will reopen early November when forest roads and tracks reopen with visitors able to access toilets at the Carters Mill picnic area from 30 June. Campers will still be able to access nearby sites at Buttercup Campground.
The project is part of Victoria’s Great Outdoors which is boosting regional tourism and making it easier for Victorians to enjoy nature by investing $105.6 million in better walking trails, four-wheel drive tracks, campgrounds and visitor facilities.
