Cgull,
Most of the places you mentioned ar south of St.George aren't they? We stayed at a really nice free camp just on the outskirts of Surat but that's about an hour north of St George. It's right by the river and is looked after by the local boating & fishing club if my memory is correct. There will be others here that may know it better as we only stayed 1 night on our way through.

cgull, on the road to Surat roughly 20 or so kilometres north of St George you'll see a road on the left sign posted Morocco (a property not place) a couple of clicks down there is a bridge with good camping on the approach side. Oh, don't forget to take your red claw nets.

be aware if you stay here...it's a mostly red dirt area that turns to mud when it rains (as usually happens with dirt...lol), may be an issue if your camping and not caravanning as the majority of the visitors here seem to be doing. it's on the banks of the river but spots by the actual river itself are pretty limited unless you want to set up outside the pub or closer down towards the main road. the place is very popular with the grey nomad scene due to it being free to stay at, chances of getting a spot by the water are slim if you arrive there in the afternoon.
in saying that above...it's a nice enough spot to stop over for a night or 2 if travelling out that way, and the meals are great (we had a roadtrain burger between our family). remember though, it's a pub based campground first and foremost, occasionally the locals like to get on the drink and can keep you up at night, the night we stayed there was one such night, though we were right down the back away from the noise so luckily weren't kept awake by them, others camped closer to the pub were kept awake i heard the next morning.
