G'day everyone,
We are new to free camping but experienced campers if that makes sense.
Looking for a quiet spot for the 1st week of November within 4 to 6 hours from Melbourne. We are in a 2wd and self sufficient using tents. Would like to be able to fish and have a fire. After years of not wanting to camp, the good lady has now got the bug and we would like to experience some of the more quiet places. Don't mind river, beach or lake.
Any advice appreciated.

Down load wikicamps app for about $7 onto you iphone/ipad, and that will give you all the information you require.

Hi baznpud,
We have the wikicamps app. and the camp 7 book.
Was looking for recommendations from people who have recently been to places with first hand experience.

phantom,
When returning home from the Mainland, the last couple of years we have spent our last night at Major Creek Reserve (257 in Camps 6) south west of Nagambie.
There is a drop loo,( have never used it) creek, but the area could be muddy if there has been rain.

If referring to Find A Camp be aware it is not up to date. As from 1st July this year, camping fees have been increased or implemented for 197 of Victoria’s 680 national and state parks. Booking must be done on line with payment also to be made on line. Some of the rates are rather steep, and there are peak period fees applied as well.
