Nice spot and the caretakers/volunteers were friendly and helpful. Little bit back from the river but the setting is great. Stayed an extra night.


The Lost Pennies

Such a hidden gem. Don't be put off by the short dirt road in. What awaits you is a little oasis. Being a scout camp where many schools also go, you must ring ahead.



What a great camp! Don't worry about the short dirt road down to the camp, it's an easy and steady road. You'll be very pleased when you reach the bottom. We stayed on a non powered grassy site, with lots of shade. Roy the caretaker was immediately welcoming, he outlined all the rules right away. The centre has a billabong for canoeing or kayaking, a flying fox, a water slide right into the River Murray and a pontoon to dive off. You can hire kayaks or canoes for a small fee and life jackets are a must! Do yourself a favour and stop in for a night or two!!
