We recently camped in the Mt Barney Lodge campgrounds for a couple of nights. The campground is spacious and has a wonderful view of Mt Barney. The location is very quiet and peaceful and, the amenities were very clean with hot showers. There is one covered shelter with a rustic wooden table and seats, which we found useful to cook our meals on our camp stove and to sit and eat . As there is currently only one amenities block in the campground, we would be hesitant to camp there in school holidays or public holidays, but fortunately my husband and I are retired, so we have the luxury of going camping at other times. The nights were very cold though, so take plenty of warm bedding and clothing if you camp there in June/July/August. There are fireplaces but you either need to take your own wood or purchase wood from the Lodge at $11 a bag. We found we needed a bag of wood for each camp night, as we love to sit by the fire whilst enjoying a glass or two of wine. The gentleman who greeted us on arrival was very friendly and helpful. I was happy to relax and read while my husband went hiking in the national park. The tracks are not well marked, so make sure you get a map from the Lodge. Overall, a very enjoyable camping experience.
