A riverside, level, large, well grassed reserve between the old and new bridge on the southern bank of the Crawford River.

Open and surrounded by flat farmland - little ambiance. One large cypress provides good shade to a couple of sites.

A row of gums on the boundary gives some privacy, otherwise open to bridge traffic. BYO firewood.

Rated 2.1/5

Features a swimming jetty to the slow, relatively broad and deep river.

Boggy and long grass if wet (appears not to be maintained or used over winter).

Nearby old Rising Sun pub (closed) is being restored by artist Nick Edge
