Campground at Kennedys Reserve

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.

Rated 3.6/5

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.
