Hi, We are heading out west to St George for a few days with the kids to do some fishing and camping. Does anyone have any suggestions for campsites along the river where we can enjoy some fishing and do a spot of canoing. We enjoy isolated bush camping and are pulling an offroad camper trailer. thanks Gerry

Free or $$ camping??


Free Camping is available on the river along the access road to Beardmore Dam about 13kms north of St George on the Carnarvon Highway, there is NO facilities there.

Alternatively, there is a couple of free ones on the northern side of the river. To get to them you cross the bridge and take the 1st road to the right (Golf Course road which is a no through road) travel along it till the bitumen ends (golf course enterance), the road then changes to a corroguated gravel road. Continue along it for another 1-2km until you get to the 1st house on the left. At the house turn right on the dirt track and proceed to the river. This is a pump site for that house. There is a large clearing there that locals have cleared to assist with fishing. Again no facilities, the owner of the pump may come and speak with you (80+ yr old woman who is also a very good artist;)


$$ Camping is available at all the caravan parks. Kupunda is the has the best access to the river (backs onto the river).

HTH

Also the fish have been biting on yabbies and earth worms lately (was in St George yesterday ;)


Cheers Kev

I will second Kapunda, not a bad part of the world. Great hosts Rick and Sharon. Clean amenities although bit of a hike to get to them, powered and unpowered sites.

Nindigully 45 km S/E of St George on the Moonie river is well worth a look. You can have a shower a great meal a couple of beers and a good yarn at the historic pub ( if that's your kind of thing ) easy access to the river also, no steep banks. Cheers Mick

When I was there a few weeks ago, a family of 2 adults and three kids between 6 and 11 ordered a roadtrain burger to feed the whole family. $35 not bad value. Cheers Mick
