Benarkin State Forest on the Blackbutt Range is a great spot to picnic, fish, spot platypus or hike or ride on forest trails. From the D'Aguilar Highway an unsealed 16 kilometre scenic forest drive leads through rainforest, hoop pine plantations and eucalypt forests containing blackbutt, tallowwood, white mahogany, gums and ironbarks to small flats beside the inviting waters of Emu Creek.

Two camping areas, Clancys and Emu Creek, are open areas beside Emu Creek (a tributary of the Brisbane River) and cater for a range of camping experiences from tents to caravans and motorhomes.

Toilet facilites and tap water (treat before drinking) are provided at both sites; cold showers are provided at Emu Creek. Open fires are permitted in fireplaces only (except during fire bans). Please bring firewood.

Dogs are permitted (on a leash) at Clancys camping area. Visitors can walk or ride mountain bikes, or horses on the Bicentennial National Trail, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail or on formed roads and tracks; except where signed or when access is restricted due to timber harvesting activities.
