Pleasant bush camping on broad open grassed banks extending along Murphy Creek, a Murray River anabranch.

Access and some sites are above most flood levels.

Sites are generally level, reasonably well shaded by scattered mature River Red Gums with short green grass sloping down to the creek (occasionally slashed, cattle grazing) - park-like. One bench and one BBQ. No beaches. Popular, possibly due to good access.

Rated 4.2/5
