Dispersed bush camping by the Murray River surrounded by extended open flood plain forest - River Red Gum, billabongs and swamps.

Well grassed (mown by grazing cattle. Low, level banks with small beaches. Prolific bird life.

Riverside access beyond the first site (large and open) may be difficult for large rigs. Track to the right 0.6k from entry proceeds 0.4k to the upper section of the reserve, more densely treed but the track is rough. A relatively large reserve but with a limited number of riverside sites. Popular (scruffy).

Rated 3.8/5

This is the upper limit of floodplain camping on the Murray, closest camp to Albury/Wodonga - its main advantage.
