G'day all,

I am planning a trip for a weekend near Gundagai and was looking for a few tips re good camping spots.

We love to camp near rivers, and I like the look of the Murrumbidigee River.

Any advice re good camping areas in this area would be greatly appreciated. (no links in the archives).

regard and thanks in advance.

Try the dam?? its about 50 kms north of the tucker box...{back towards yass}

however there might not be any water in the damn.....the last I heard of was the camping ground was going broke because there wasnt any water left in it.

however is you want to be on a nice stream with toliets and a proper national parkk camp site try wee jasper {about 100 kms due west of gundagai}

We stayed at the Good Hope Resort (ha!) on the Lake Burrinjuck about 20kms from Yass. It wasn't very nice and it seemed expensive at the time. I think all the places on the lake/dam charge an entry fee plus your camping fees.

Hi Deano, Have to agree about Wee Jasper camping ground. It is the nicest spot and so green and beautifully maintained. I don't think there is any charge for it either. It's a spot where you set up camp and forget to go home. We found it last week after coming down Gentle Annie and through Flea Creek. Some really good 4wding day trips from there as well. Well worth the visit. We only live 20 minutes from Gundagai, and it is to busy and full on now. Really not much to see around here either.

Deano,
Downstream from the dam is a pretty little place called Childowla regularly used by the canoeing and kayaking fraternity for competitions etc so there's always the risk of crowds .
Last time I was there there was no grass under the huge grove of pine trees beside the river but heaps of pine needles. And rocks to make it hard to get tent pegs in.

Try out along the back road from Gundagai to Wagga. This follows the northern bank of the river all the way to WW via Nangus. There are a couple of good spots, Best is prob Wantabadgery Beach maybe 30km from Gundagai. Turn left (south) at the store.
