Better bathrooms at Booti Booti among campground upgrades
One of the most popular campgrounds in the Mid North Coast is now even better following a major upgrade to essential visitor amenities.
National Parks and Wildlife Service Manning Great Lakes Team Leader Rangers Brett Cann said the upgrade included new camp kitchens and better bathrooms at Booti Booti National Park.
"The Ruins campground has always been a popular spot on the Mid North Coast, perched perfectly between Seven Mile Beach and Wallis Lake.
"The campground has just reopened and return visitors will notice quite a difference.
"The ageing amenities building was completely demolished and a totally new facility has now been completed.
"The upgrade has been constructed with mobility restricted users in mind.
"Visitors can now enjoy accessible bathrooms, changerooms, including a family changeroom with baby change table and bath, outdoor showers and instantaneous hot water.
"The building design is focussed on environmental sustainability with efficient natural and LED lighting, solar power, solar hot water and a rainwater harvest and reuse system.
"The camp kitchen is ready for the camp connoisseur with 3 barbecues, seating, benches and hot and cold water.
"This project was completed as part of the biggest infrastructure investment in NSW national parks history, delivering $450 million of priority works that benefit the community and boost nature-based tourism across the state.
"Visitors are also reminded all accommodation bookings are now on line at Camping and accommodation ," Mr Cann said.
