Devils Hollow; epic mountain view camping in the High Country

Some camp sites have good views. Some have absolutely insane views, and Sarah and I have been keen to camp somewhere high up for a long time. The thing is though, you’ve got to get it right; the weather has to be suitable with minimal wind, and you have to be confident your kids are old enough not to run off the edge.

In the past, we’ve avoided camp sites up high as the risk of our youngest taking off was simply not anywhere near worth the amazing views, but that’s all changed, with both of them relatively independent. Enter the amazing Devils Hollow campground!

The Victorian High Country has so many places that will take your breath away, and in our planning to do the Blue Rag Range 4WD track, we were on the hunt for a camp site not too far away.

Devils hollow came up, and the reviews looked great, so we headed up.

Where is Devils Hollow?

By up, that’s exactly what I meant. The camp site sits at about 1520 metres above sea level, and you can see across the valley to Hotham Heights, and Dinner Plains. It’s towards the end of the Dargo High Plains road, and is only 15 minutes from the start of the Blue Rag Range track, which is absolutely magnificent.

Devils Hollow camping area is right off Kings Spur Track, on the way to Mayfield, and gets a small amount of traffic coming either way.

Costs and booking

Like the vast majority of camping in the Victorian High Country, there are no costs to stay here, and you cannot book it. There’s enough sites to fit quite a few people in anyway, but I’d imagine it could get busy on weekends.

What are the camp sites like?

The Devils Hollow camp sites are unmarked, but just tracks leading towards the edge of the mountain. Some are big enough for one or two vehicles, and others are big enough for 10. Most are grassy, with minimal shade, but insane views.

Is it Caravan friendly?

I reckon most caravans would make it in here with no issues, unless they were incredibly large, or low to the ground. The track in is short, open enough and really straight forward. This is one of many spots in the High Country we towed our Reconn R2.

Watch the wind

If you’re going to stay here, know that it gets cold in summer, and I have no doubt it would be next level freezing in winter, and that’s without the wind factor. It can boogey up here, and you are wise to look at the forecast and plan this into your stay. We were very fortunate with two days of minimal wind, but in the times it did blow, it was incredibly cold and not that pleasant. You are quite literally, on the edge of the world.

This is completely worth a stay

This is a magic camp site, and we loved our stay. Waking up to clouds floating by, watching the sun rise and set right in front of you and seeing the stars at night, and the glow of lights from Hotham Heights was as magic as it gets.

Our kids loved running around on the open, flat areas well away from the edge, and we even got to watch a family wedding with perfect phone reception. If you’re coming past Devils Hollow, drive in and check it out. It’s incredible.
