Located in the Chichester State Forest on the east coast of New South Wales, Frying Pan Creek is located around a twenty minute drive from the small town of Dungog. Frying Pan Creek provides a great location for campers to get away from it all, with a nice little river flowing through it, adding to the serenity of the camping ground.
The Frying Pan Creek camping ground is reasonably easy to access. From Dungog, take the Stroud Hill Road east, before taking the Monkerai Road north after around 3km. After 1.5km turn left onto Main Creek Road. This road continues onto Skimmings Gap Road, then turn right after around 14km right onto Frying Pan Road. Follow this road for around 6.5km until you reach the campground. The road into the camping ground is a gravel road but can be accessed by a two wheel drive and caravan in dryer weather. 4WD only in wet conditions.
The camping ground offers over one hundred individual campsites. There is plenty of flat ground with ample grass, so there is no actual "best spot".
The Frying Pan Creek campground offers limited fishing in the Telegherry River. There is also space for ball games, but generally a spot to visit just to kick the feet up and relax.
Best Time To Go
Given the campground can get a bit boggy in wetter conditions, it is recommended that the campground is visited during the warmer months.
