Having lost the service of our diesel heater, and heading for our old house sit near St Helens to fit a replacement, we needed to find another campground with power as the nights are still a little cool. Craggy Peaks is a bit off the beaten track close to Rossarden, one of the old mining communities in the Fingal Valley. This road forms a loop from the Esk Highway at Avoca, rejoining at Fingal, a total loop of almost 50km.
Craggy Peaks is an old golf course, converted in the early 2000s to a cabin resort complex with 16 high quality cabins. The original revamp failed and the property was again abandoned for a while before being bought once more. They now offer camping anywhere around the land or along the central creek and provision for 2 or 3 powered hook ups. There is no drinking water for campers but good toilets and showers and free washing machines and dryer.

A stroll around the old Golf Course reveals a walking path through the bush and the various fairways, tees and greens, some being kept mowed and others suffering the neglect of disuse.
