The Glenalbyn Campground is a great spot to set up camp for a weekend of bushwalking, gold prospecting, or exploring local history. This spacious free campground is located right on the edge of the Kooyoora State Park and the Glenalbyn State Forest, with multiple picnic tables and fire pits/barbecue plates set around a large clearing. There is lots of space for camping across both sides of the road, and caravans/RVs will have no trouble reaching the site in dry conditions. 

Gold prospecting is permitted within this section of the Kooyoora State Park, as well as the Glenalbyn State Forest which lies to the east of the campground. Check out Parks Victoria's prospecting map for the Kooyoora State Park.
