In a few day's time we will be travelling bewteen Mt Isa and Karumba and would like to camp somewhere around midway. Has anyone any recommended bush camping sites - Camps5 only lists one suggestion - maybe someone has been there and can give us an opinion?

Most greatful for any suggestions.

Depends on which way you are going

I went via Cloncurry and can recommend the Burke & Wills Roadhouse camp ground for about the 1/2 way point.

There are also a few rest stops along the way, but would suggest you get a copy of Camps Australia 5

Donors Hill rest area about 60+ Ks north of Burke & Wills road house or Cowan Downs rest area 28Ks north of B&W road house.
Go caravaning, life is so much shorter than death.

If you've never been there, do not miss Lawn Hill George.
I don't have the info on me at present, but do the usual searches, it is a Qld national park.
You did say bush camping, but it's well worth a visit if you have a day or two.
Re Karumba.. I have great memories of a burger there, a fillet of barramundi and a few king prawns.
Happy travels,

As thers have asked, it depends on which way you travel.

We've always gone through Camoweal so that we can visit Lawn Hill. We either stay at Adel's Grove or on the river at Gregory Downs. After 30 years, habits are hard to break:-)

Come any closer and I'll rip your throat out!
