This camping area is accessible along Rocky Creek track, located approximately 6.5 km from the Reservoir Picnic Area.

Rocky Creek and Mount McLeod Hike-in Camping Areas are open during winter but the walk into the campsites is longer because the Reservoir Road closes. Therefore, campers need to be well prepared for Alpine areas and prepared for a long walk/ski.
