Relax and unwind in the fresh country air at McSweeney Ranch, a privately owned working cattle farm located 25 minutes from Casino. McSweeney Ranch offers long and short term camping as well as two onsite swagmans cabins and is the perfect place for a weekend getaway or an enjoyable family camping holiday.
Sites are unpowered and there are no showers available but they do provide toilet facilities. There is plenty of shade to camp under or choose a spot in the sun if you want to make use of your solar. The campground is accessible by 2WD and suitable for tents, caravans,camper trailers and motorhomes.
Pets are welcome but with over 400 head of Black Angus stud cattle roaming around the property they must be kept on a leash at all times. You may even get the chance to meet some of the curious cows in the fields.There is plenty of room around the site for outdoor activities, a freshwater creek to cool off and relax in and fire pits with plenty of wood around the property for you to collect. They also have an undercover gazebo and a large communal fire pit for guests to use situated close to the cabins.
If your not the true blue camper or you don’t own a tent or van, no worries as your hosts Andrew and Helen have two onsite swagmans cabins that are great for a stay at McSweeney Ranch.The cabins are not self contained but they are well ventilated and have a large front deck with a 6 burner BBQ and an outdoor table that seats 8.
You will need to bring your own swags, stretchers or blow up mattresses as there are no beds in the cabins but there is enough space to fit 2 king size beds. That means ample room for you and your family or a group of friends. Extra tents are also welcome around the cabin.The cabins are well ventilated, have solar lights inside and out, a 12v cigarette outlet and USB port, a 12v fridge freezer and have their own water tanks connected.
McSWEENEY RANCH is a great place for the whole family to get away and bond. You will have views of the clear blue sky throughout the day, and a starry, dreamy sky of the night.
If you are like the other campers that have come to McSweeney Ranch for two days and stayed for two weeks then you can get any additional supplies you may need in Casino. Casino is well serviced with everything you will need from supermarkets to doctors, chemists butchers, bakeries and more.
