Boundary Rd, Armidale Region, New South Wales



Bush camping beside the Styx River in the Styx River State Forest. Facilities include toilets, picnic tables and BBQ. The forest can be accessed via the Armidale-Kempsey Road. Turn north onto Styx River Forest Way and follow directional signage. Access for two wheel drives not recommended. Caravans and campervans are welcome, but only four wheel drives. No power is available. Choose a campsite carefully, at least 20 metres from the edge of any stream or waterway. Use existing areas for camping and do not clear or damage trees and plants. Use soaps or detergents at least 50 metres from waterways and camping areas. Detergents, toothpaste and soap (even biodegradable) harm fish and aquatic life. Take all rubbish with you and leave no trace. State forests permit dogs, but visitors should keep them under control and on a lead at all times.

Access into the campground via Kempsey Road was closed off when we tried to visit yesterday. The sign at the turn off from Grafton road said 'road closed resident access only'. There's another way in apparently but we didn't try it.


Laps of Maps

Access is via Point Lookout Road and onto Forest Way. Otherwise, if you are a keen 4WDer with experience and a capable rig, you will have no issues with passing through the deep bog holes and steep rutted hill climb on the Boundary Trail, off the Styx River Forest Way. We had no issues on the Boundary Trail, heading down (south.) Camping is beautiful, although there would only be enough room for 2-3 groups.


Matchbox and toaster

Could not get through to campsite. Had 4wd and 4wd trailer but the roads were so rutted out that the puddles were too deep for us to go through. Very sketchy road to turn around in. Would not recommend even trying it
