Camden Park is an attractive property with much effort having been spent on pasture renovation and management, shelter belt tree planting, water system and overall presentation.
It is flat to gently undulating and is renown for being warm, productive cattle country.
In 2004 as part of the Upper South East drainage program the land was extensively drained at great cost by the SA government with a landholder contribution. This has enabled productive paddocks of Lucerne to be sown on the flats and there is scope to sow more.
Thirteen paddocks have been sown to lucerne varieties such as Trifecta, Hunterfield and Flairdale. The balance of the improved pasture is mainly veldt, primrose and clover.Puccinellia was sown on the wetter ground. There is a good cover of pasture all over and the property is in excellent condition, reflecting the care taken over the many years.
