Butts Reserve is a great campground beneath Mt Tarrengower, featuring picnic tables, wood fire barbecues, bins, toilets, and water taps along the back of the toilet block. There is also a large undercover area with a concrete floor located separate to the picnic area. Campsites are scattered through a lightly treed area and surrounded by hillsides of huge boulders. These rocky slopes are great for kids to climb!

This campsite is accessible by 2wd vehicles and caravans.

If you continue up the mountain on Mt Tarrengower Road you will soon come to the Mt Tarrengower Lookout, a massive tower which offers panoramic views over Maldon and the surrounding areas.
