Hi all,
Does anyone know of a free camp spot right on the Murray between Wellington & Murray Bridge please?
Thanks,
Dave

You'll be lucky........this is the prime dairy swamp region of the Lower Murray.

Cattle are more important than campers!

Try asking the Rural City of Murray Bridge for their campsites/advice.

You may have to go north of Murray Bridge to Avoca Dell.

Thanks Rick,
I know Avoca Dell quite well, but didn't know you could free camp there. Do you mean right at Avoca Dell or close by? If close by, would you mind giving directions,
Cheers,
Dave

Hi Dave

Just had a look inn my "Camping guide to SA" book. there is nothing in there for this area. the closest appears to be at Mannum north of MB and the Coorong NP for at least lo cost ($4 - $6 per night).

Mannum Tourist Information Centre phone 08 8569 1303
NPWSA Coorong 08 8575 1200

Good Luck

Garry

The closest free camps are at Narrung which lies south of Tailem bend at the mouth of Lake Albert or on the western bank of the Murray at the Mannum Ferry Crossing.

Dave, we traversed this area on a trailerable yacht during April/May '04. From what we could see from the water its either willow thickets, some swamps and heaps of "keep off, private property" signs on the banks. I don't think you'd find any free camping spots, accessible from the shore. Camping on a boat is the way to go, just tie up to some willows for the night :-0
