The Palm Valley campground is in a beautiful location on Palm Creek. It has running water toilets, hot showers and gas barbeques for overnight campers; however, only 3 of 22 campsites are designated for tent campers. Eleven of the campsites are for camper trailers. Campfires can only be built in two designated fire pits and you must bring your own wood. Camping fees are payable on site (cash only) and camping is only permitted in designated areas. Unfortunately the morning of the second day that we were there, the sewer system got blocked and they closed the toilets. They did re-open them around 18:00 but only for non-solid waste. There were other toilets ~0.7 km up the road at the day-use picnic area, but to get there you also had to cross a ford on a small side creek. BTW, we were careful not to pitch our tents under the river gum trees which are known to drop limbs indiscrimately.
