On a sharp bend, on the banks of the Murray, this popular camping site has plenty of room to camp among the large established gum trees

Numerous cleared areas for vans/motor homes, well shaded, can be difficult to negotiate if recently rain has fallen.

Being right on the banks of the Murray means there are all the river based activities available to you. From canoeing/kayaking to swimming, fishing or just sitting on the bank and watching time go by.

There is also a reasonable launching spot for a tinny making this a great base for fishing trips on the Murray.

Thanks to Peter for the updates

Semi-dispersed bush camp ground on the high banks of the Murray River, well shaded by tall River Red Gums and Box with some wattle scrub. A little tired and worn. Can be dry and dusty. Small beach. Popular, being handy to Echuca. Facing flood plain forest across the river.

Rated 4/5
