Slaty Creek Campground Number 2 is the second of three camping/picnic areas along Slaty Creek within the Creswick Regional Park. It features a clearing bordered by logs with a fire pit / barbecue plate at its centre. 

This small campground is located just around the corner from Slaty Creek Campground Number 1 by road, and a short walk up the hill from it by foot. The toilet block and picnic area of Campground Number 1 (just visible through the trees) are an easy moments walk down the slope, making this a convenient, quiet spot to set up camp.

Another basic campsite, Slaty Creek Campground Number 3, is located about five minutes drive from here.

Slaty Creek is a great area for bushwalking, birdwatching and gold prospecting.

While you're camping here be sure to check out Blue Waters, located less than 10 minutes drive away through the Creswick Regional Park. Once an open cut mine, Blue Waters is now a gorgeous scenic area fantastic for swimming, bushwalking and photography. Surrounded by striking red cliffs, the water is incredibly clear and shines an iridescent blue when the sun hits it.
