Oakey Creek Bowenville Reserve is a large level open area with flushing toilets. This is a vast area with room for many rigs of all sizes and suitable for group gatherings.
It is advisable to set up camp on the higher ground near the toilets. Down by the creek is black soil and very boggy after rainy weather.

There is no water available here. Fires only in designated areas away from creek. It can get busy on long weekends.

The boat ramp is steep and not sealed, so it is not really suitable for 2WD vehicles.

We stayed here early August 2016. The site is very good but we had to leave after 2 nights as our camper trailer was over run with mice. We took 5 with us to our next stop!!!!
There is no running water in the toilets, but there is hand sanitiser on the walls of both men & ladies.
