In Mary River National Park, adjacent to Finke Bay, unless Ken is referring to the Station south of there.




Looking for adventure.

There was a camping area of sorts near the boat ramp when I was there a few years ago.

We spent a night camped at Point Stewart Resort in 2007. We tried (not too hard) to get out to the coast, but failed.
Couzens Lookout on the Mary River was more our style though. Good fishing too.

Cheers,

Point Stuart is an older 'wilderness resort'. I has camping areas and cabin accommodation. It is used by fishermen and shooters. Also lots of tour groups use it for a base for bus tours. It is a great place with a bar and restaurant but don't expect 5 star by today's standard.
I go each year and love it! bUt I do go to go fishing and spend almost no time at the cabins. It is about 20 minutes to the Shady Camp launching area. Shady also has camping areas.

Cheers

Thanks 515

Appreciate the feed back,
It's really a stop off for a night or two but the pool looks enticing, what's shady camp like to camp, do you have to be super warrie of crocs.

Always be croc wise Ken!

That said, pop into Shady Camp for a night or two. A couple of other things to do apart from fishing. There is a nice platform to view the river from which is only 200m or so upstream from camp. Or take a careful walk at low tide downstream for about 1km and croc watch...some 5m whoppers down there! Take some binoc's.

The mozzies are bad at sunrise/sunset but don't let them stop you from going I say :)

Safe travels,

Ken w4, at shady camp the mozzies and midgies will get you before the crocs, they are savage there. Maybe save the trip in off the highway and stay at Mary River Caravan park instead. Shady camp is about 50ks from there. 35ks off dirt road and the rest bitumen.
