No longer free camping on the Hugh. Parks officers just advised me you need to book and pay online to camp anywhere along the river.



This area needs to be booked online spoke to ranger and he confirmed just so you all know. It's a massive area and once you've booked you can find any spot you like to camp. There are no designated camp sites it's just choose an area you like and set up. It goes on for kilometres!! Lots of wood. Lots great spots. Some of the river has deep pools still



We stayed 2 nights Great free camp! we just followed the road until we found a spot near the water. Mice running around at night got into our car and had a little nibble on some food. but other than that a good free camp.
