Access 5-6 Camping Areas (River Murray Reserve)

Camp at Access 5 & 6 Camping Areas and take in the beauty of the more remote areas of the Murray-Sunset National Park. Canoe along the Murray River, go for a swim or just relax at base. No fees or bookings are required. Access is by 4WD in dry weather only. A picnic table is available at the eastern end of the camping area.

Visitor Tips: This is a remote area with no mobile reception. Campers must be self-sufficient and carry all the water and provisions they need. Please practise minimal impact camping and observe relevant fire regulations. Fires are permitted only where fireplaces are provided and must be extinguished with water before leaving. Please bring your own firewood or a gas or electric stove or barbecue.

Campsites should be at least 20m from the river. Avoid camping under or close to large trees like River Red Gums, as branches may fall at any time and swing away from the tree. Chemical toilets are preferred. Pit toilets must be at least 100m from the water’s edge. Bury toilet paper and waste appropriately. No bins are provided – please take all rubbish home with you for recycling or disposal. Download the Lindsay, Mulcra and Wallpolla Islands Visitor Guide for more information.
