Franklin River Reserve Rest Area provides day use on a large grassy area suitable for any size rigs. There are fire pits, tables and toilets.
The rest area has two levels. The upper level next to the road has an information display. The area is very well grassed and is well maintained. Picnic tables and wood BBQs can be found in this area.

On 31st October 2020 Council advises that it has identified infrastructure, risk, environmental, and public health concerns at Franklin River Reserve located at 4705 South Gippsland Highway, Toora.

These concerns extend to inappropriate use of infrastructure, damage to septic infrastructure, soil contamination, as well as risk from tree-limb drop and fire.

To mitigate the risk to the public and alleviate pressure on the site, Council have permanently restricted camping and overnight stays.
