About an hr drive from Emerald towards clearmont you can visit theresa crek dam. Once you arrive or if tourist season ring ahead and book a camping spot not much cost. You can ski here or put the kyak in it has lots of birdlife and a nice little boat ramp. There is also a playground with lush graas and a kiosk with supplies like ice and drinks and food.
There is toilets and showers.
Also no set camping area allocayed you can just pick which area you like the best. Little camp fires are allowed as well. In Cleaemont we had breakfast at a nice little cafe it was delishous. I cant remember name of it but it was on the main street.
