In the Fortesque River. A very popular camp spot with locals. Good camping area surrounded by large gums and native millstream palms. Access is by 150km good gravel road via Python Pool then 30km track. The track is rough and crosses many small creeks. Not suitable for anything less than top quality off-road campers. The main camping area is to the west with a water hole some 800m long. It is advisable to check with local authorities as to the river level as this area is often not accessible in the wet.
Great camping area with many locations for 4-6 cars. more than 1500m of river bed available with good shade.
Extreme caution needed in summer to avoid dramas as all the good camping spots are on the opposite bank of the river to the road in. If the river comes up rapidly as it does quite regularly in the wet season getting back across the river can be a problem. Generally the river will go down again after 6-12 hrs, except in extended cyclonic rains when you wouldn't want to be there!
