Camp 2 is 2WD accessible and can easily accommodate a hundred people and dozens of vehicles, camper trailers and/or RVs.
It can be hired as one site or shared with another party.
It features two very large flat areas for camping and activities among big shady trees. Camp 2A is ~1500sqm and Camp 2B is over 2000sqm. Camp 2A and Camp 2B include a large covered wooden deck each (~70sqm). These are about 80 meters apart. Being close to Emerald Creek (see map below) and only 5-10 min walk from the magnificent Emerald Falls, there is plenty to do.
This is our prime glamping site, it is ideally suited to large private parties, weddings or other private events. It is also a very enjoyable site for a small or large family or shared with some friends.
Definitely one of FNQ’s very best camping sites.
Size: Very large camp site situated right on the creek and a short ten minute walk from Emerald falls. It has about one acre (4000sqm) of flat ground under big shady trees, two covered wooden decks, two toilets and two grey-water pits.
Access: 2WD, large Camper Van, Camper Trailer. Public access road is not suited for caravans.
NOTE: One of our main internal roads is passing between Camp 2 and the creek (going across the top of the image above) and might be used occasionally by one of our farm or management vehicles. Other campers are permitted to walk or ride bicycles along that road.
Occupancy: This site can be booked for less people, but will be charged for a minimum of 5 adults for camp 2A and 7 adults for camp 2B if booked by two parties, or 11 adults for the whole camp 2 site if booked by one party for maximum privacy.
Suggested occupancy up to 150 people and 50 vehicles.
Privacy: well tucked away, ~130m from closest road, ~260m from the public Emerald Falls picnic area and ~800m from closest camp site (all as the crow flies).
One internal road is going between camp and creek, so the occasional farm vehicle may come past or occasionally other campers might walk or bicycle along it.
If only half the site is booked (Camp 2A or Camp 2B), you might have another party at the other A-frame deck, which is ~80 meters away
Activities: Bird watching, Creek-dipping, Swimming at bottom of Falls, Mountain-biking, Hiking, Bush Walking…..

|Kylie||5||We loved the creek! It was great to have the deck and the firepit. The site works perfectly for a group to spread out their tents and come together round the fire and under the deck. We enjoyed walking up to the falls for a swim as well.
We were thankful that site 2B was not booked so we had all the privacy we needed. It may have changed our experience a little if it was booked with a group in there.
|swag,small-tent,medium-tent,small-camper||We had no issues with the site.||2_one-of-best|
|anonymous||5||Gorgeous space, great for large groups. Good to have the shelter for protection if it rains. Close to Emerald Creek falls walk and beautiful riverside space.||large-trailer,roof-tent,medium-tent||Perfect||2_one-of-best|
|Vee||5||Very easy access, lots of trees around for shade, close access to the creek for swimming, close to Emerald Falls, huge area, booked both camp 2a & b but only used 2b.||swag,small-tent,medium-trailer||Perfect to suit the many different styles different members of the group had.||3_better-than-most|
|Jodie||5||We stayed on 2B. The camp site is huge and the shed was a life saver with a bit of rain threatening and storms about. There were other people on 2A but they were still far enough away that we didn’t see each other at all.||medium-tent||Again, site was well maintained and nice and clean. We were suppose to say at camp 5 which looked amazing as well but with the weather and storms looming, 2B was better suited for us only having a tent the shed provided us better protection.||2_one-of-best|
|Chris||5||Great spot. Close to the creek and perfect for a swim to cool down. We utilised the decked shady area, this was an awesome feature. Large camp area and plenty of shade for the middle of the day.||small-trailer,medium-tent||Possibly a handrail for the steps down from the decked area.||3_better-than-most|
|Sherry||5||The shelter was awesome. The site was clean. It was private. It was close to the falls.||large-trailer||Perfect for our camp site||2_one-of-best|
|anonymous||5||This is an awesomely spacious campsite with 2 shelters that were perfect for our camp as we had 33 people. Loads of space for everyone.||small-tent,medium-tent,large-tent||For us running an event here was challenging due to having to bring in all of the kitchen equipment. A basic bush good sized kitchen set up that could accomodate caterers would make this space so much more attractive to people hosting events.
We also had on 2 different occasions other groups of people drive into our space and this was not good considering the type of event we were running. One of the cars had three men in it claiming that they had done work for Svargo and they were just checking on the space. Luckily they came in just one hour after our participants had left but still quite disturbing. The gate was closed at the time of entry also.
We also had to push the poo down in the toilets… which we hoped did not need to be done. So for large groups another toilet would be great.
[OUR COMMENT: there is a sink with running water now. Please record and report any trespassers, they will be charged no matter what excuse they give]
|anonymous||5||Private site, gorgeous surroundings, feel comfortable, beautiful location.||small-camper,small-tent,medium-tent||It was fantastic. Had two sheds which was perfect for what we wanted.||2_one-of-best|
|Jasmine||5||So private, absolutely beautiful surroundings and a calm feel||swag||The only thing was about the fire place when it rained the fire pit was like a raging river. But other than that it was amazing||1_best|
|anonymous||5||Can’t fault a thing about this site however a tap would have been a luxury but was not essential||small-tent,medium-tent,large-tent,small-camper,small-trailer||A tap would have been great||2_one-of-best|
|Lynsey||5||Private and intimate camp whilst able to accommodate a large group.||swag,medium-tent||We all found the site perfect for our needs.||2_one-of-best|
|anonymous||5||10 out 10 for the campsite 2 as easy access for all types of vehicles and camping styles
setting was great close to running clean fresh water, felt secluded and quite other than our noise – no one else to compete with for space etc other than your own camping group – that was the best thing about camping at emerald escape and I assume it is the same at all other camp sites.
|swag,medium-tent,roof-tent,medium-camper,large-tent||no problems what so ever encountered with this camp site||2_one-of-best|
|anonymous||5||5 Star- Private, child friendly, beautiful creek.||medium-tent||Well set up||2_one-of-best|
|Yvonne||5||Our campsite(2) was large and flat, perfect for a few families with quick access to the river and a fantastic shed for our kitchen area. The pit latrine was clean and spider-free which was a huge bonus. We had nightly visits from a bandicoot and spotted quoll which was great too. Our children spent hours playing in the river.||medium-tent||Earlier check-in would be fantastic but otherwise everything else was perfect.||3_better-than-most|
|Maree||5||Very private, well maintained||large-tent,medium-tent||It suited us perfectly. So private and tranquil!!||2_one-of-best|
|Rebecca||4||See above comment box.
Camp two was great. Was very spacious! Privacy was good. We could hear the cars going to and from emerald creek falls but could not see any. The lights set up on the A-frame were great and extremely useful.
