Emerald Pool campsite | Mt Richmond Forest Park

Emerald Pool campsite may not be classed as an official DOC camping area, but there’s no actual restriction here. Not much in the way facilities, but for the experienced camper there’s most of what you need: a flat area to pitch your tent, flowing water nearby, and the jackpot, a picnic table.

And, best of all, at least in the summer months, there’s the entirely attractive Emerald Pool nearby, pristine if cool water, to take a dip in.
