Blue Pool Camping – Campground Guide

Next on the list of free camping Victoria sites is the very popular Blue Pool camping campsite. It is the number one spot to go camping for free in the Briarlong State Forest area.

As you can imagine with such a majestic swimming hole it makes for great swimming, can be super cold in the winter months though. The water hole sits at the bottom of a basalt gorge.

Blue Pool camping location is also a great spot for the avid hiker as there are many short and longer walks which are accessible from the campsite. For the ultra enthusiasts, this includes Track 96 which is a whopping 60 km’s. Plan to do this one over a multiple-day stint.

The gated campground is not necessarily friendly to caravans and would suit camper trailers and tents. It seems as there is only about 1 caravan site and based on the information that it is a busy site that this would get snapped up rather fast.

In saying that the campsite itself is suitable for all sized caravans and of course camper trailers and tents. Bear in mind again that this is a hot spot during holiday periods so you must get in early or you will most likely miss out.
