Absolute top spot, but everyone also thinks so it can be busy unless you cross the river which can be done 2 ways. One is next to Geehi hut but given the rain we've just had the river would be too high. There is another way across if you drive past the turnoff into Geehi and cross the bridge and there is a track off to your right. Not sure of it's condition or if you would get a camper on it or not but worth a look as i have never used it! Geehi Dam is worth a daytrip in, there are a few good views along the way. Another option is to try the Geehi Walls track leading to Kancoban. Once again i do not know if it still open or its condition. We used to use a number of years back with no problems and it brought you into the old Geehi Hut area.

Back up everything Madcow has said. We've camped there twice and it's fabulous (but very popular). If you go into the main area off the road it packs out quite quickly but there's a LOT of good camping across the river. Just with the right turn, that's if you're coming from Khancoban. Hope you have fun.

We camped at Geehi about a month ago. The Geehi Dam road is closed until further notice due to water erosion.
Geehi is a nice place to camp, and it has toilet facilities.

FYI there is also an underground bunker that was used when the snowy mountains scheme was being built. It was used to measure any disturbances when blast took place. While I've never been there I do have the Co-ords for it and have seen pictures also. It is a 1km walk through the bush to get to it. We intend to head up that way in a couple of weeks to try and locate it!

I hope to finally find a trout dumb enough to take a fly.

Shame about Geehi Dam road.
