TERRIFIED campers fled Allyn River in the middle of the night after a brawl in which a chainsaw and chairs were used as weapons.

Three people were hospitalised following the incident. One was awaiting further treatment yesterday.

Unbelivable sounds like a B grade movie.

Hi Blue One

I have camped that area for 30 odd years, and there has always been problems. It is a damn sight worse now that they have closed off a lot of roadside camp sites, and make everyone camp on top of each other.

Last time I camped there, a group of young men came in after dark, set up camp pretty quickly, then the stereo started... and never stopped. Volume higher than a fulll throttle chain saw. All bloody night, despite repeated requests from other campers for them to quieten down.

Ranger and police turned up the middle of the next day, and the young fellas left, but don't believe for one minute that this is a rare occurence. That was about 3 years ago, I haven't been back.

I suppose the attraction for the young people is that it's not too far from 'civilization' and it's free camping. Don't get me wrong, not ALL young campers behave in this way, quite the opposite really. We have had many young 'neighbours' while camping, most of them really nice, enjoying the bush, but there just always seems to be one group that spoils things for others, particularly in that area.

We go to private camp sites not too far away from there now, don't mind paying for peace and quiet, and security for my family.

Cheers, Dave

Basically in the Barrington area of NSW, an hour from Maitland, look on a map for Gresford and Dungog, it's about 1/2 way between

Exactly as Dave has said, it's also an extremely beautiful spot being spoilt for the majority by a completely moronic minority.

I gave away going there years ago as the grief just plain wasn't worth it!

Actually, thinking about the trouble maker crowd up that way, I'm selling morons short. Any moron offended by my first sentence please accept my apologies!

Just had the weekend away in a C/P on the South Coast of NSW. Last night we had people yahooing at 2.00am and then proceeded to chop firewood. No wonder these events happen with idiots like that around. Regards,Bob.

Had the exact opposite in Turon National Park. Nice a quiet with a few selected people - the Turon River, a campfire and clear nights - no hoons! :-)

I had a good weekend camping at Moonan Flat with the 4*4 club. Except for some rain on Sunday.

Tried out the camper and all worked well. Leaving on our trip to Alice on the 5th May. Cant wait
