Information

This is NSW National Parks campground in the Kosciusco National Park. There are a number of small, informal campsites with no facilities along the banks of the Swampy Plains River. The adjacent large flat, now being rehabilitated, was a large, long term workers' camp during the construction of the Snowy Mountains Scheme.

The Flat is accessible from the Alpine Way via a steep 4WD track on the Jindabyne side of the bridge over the Swampy Plains River, or via a rocky crossing of the river at the far end of the rest area and more organised campground accessed from the Alpine Way on the Khancoban side of the river. There are a number of substantial historic fishing huts in the area, built from rocks obtained from the river and surrounds.

The best sites are near Keeble's Hut at the northern end of the Flat. Here there is a large, deep swimming hole and a rope swing for the kids (big and little) and a long drop toilet.. This part can get busy in holiday periods.

The Flat is a good base from which to explore the local area.

Camping is free but park useage fees apply. Fees are payable at the Park entrance stations at Kiandra and on the Alpine Way as you approach Thredbo from Jindabyne and also at NSW NPWS offices at Jindabyne and Khancoban. The Khancoban office is the administrative headquarters for the campground.
