A group of friends have taken it upon themselves to help restore a state forest campground to benefit the whole community.
Port Macquarie resident Rob Coburn was one of five people who spent a weekend "swinging off chainsaws" to bring the Wild Bull Camping Ground back to life, after it was left in a state of devastation due to the March floods.
The camping location is in the Mount Boss State Forest, a short drive from Wauchope.
Mr Coburn said the site is a favourite with his family and others.
"It's a beautiful campground which has everything a family needs," he said.
"There's shallow water for the little kids to play in, deep water for the big kids to swim in, level ground to put your tents, fire pits to cook, sheltered tables to sit at, toilets and no phone reception," he said.
"It ticks every box."
The Wild Bull Campground is classified as state forest which means people are permitted to cut and collect fallen timber at the location.
"There were fallen trees across everything," Mr Coburn said.
The group's clean up effort was posted on social media and they received positive feedback for their actions.
Mr Coburn said people now know the camping ground is available for everyone to enjoy.
"It's pretty well known and you don't need a four-wheel-drive to get there," he said.
The friends volunteered their time and personal equipment.
Mr Coburn urged members of the community to look after the environment when they visit a location and littering is a sign of disrespect and selfishness.
A State Forests spokesperson said the campground remains closed as there is still a lot of work still happening to repair the area and make safe again for visitors.
