An informal/unofficial camp site - no facilities - where we have stopped a number of times for a quiet camp.
Extended river-side flats just upstream the usual height of Lake Hume. Shade from a few old and many young Red Gums plus wattles.
From the rest area the left track leads to a sandy beach, the right to a swimming hole complete with a swing rope hanging from an old Red Gum. Many potential sites are overgrown by grass and fire-weed. Most are visually secluded from the low use road by thick groves of Red Gum saplings and scrub.
Mount Lawson State Park dry sclerophyll forest rises behind with the forested Mt Pleasant range across the river - a pleasant, quiet outlook.
The rest area itself is semi-secluded from the road, is above the flood line, has a BBQ (broken) and rubbish bin, but has limited level parking.
This is a free camping area.
First in, best dressed.
