and press # 2.
Notes: Bookings are required to gain a camping permit to stay in the forest overnight. These sites are not suitable for large groups but bookings may be made by more than 1 hiker per night recognising that tents may be used as well as bunks in huts.

Please note that in addition to fire bans applicable to the Mount Lofty Ranges Region, special fire restrictions apply to ForestrySA accommodation and campsites.
Provided that a Total Fire Ban has not been imposed by the Country Fire Service (CFS):
Wood fires are permitted within the forest from 1 May to 31 October each year.
Gas fires are permitted from 1 April to 30 November.
Fireplaces should be cleared of all flammable material for a distance of 4 metres. Someone must be always present and ensure that the fire is fully extinguished before leaving.
Forests are very sensitive to fire, so please ensure all restrictions are followed.
Occasionally access to Forest Reserves may be restricted. Refer to https://www.forestrysa.com.au/before-you-visit/forest-closures-and-alerts/
