On the banks of a U-bend in the Darling River. No facilities whatsoever yet it is a very popular camping area. Some sites are down near the water, some up a bit higher, and plenty around the immediate area. For true 4WD setups (no vans) there is a 5 km track that continues which circumnavigates the various bends and comes back to this camping area. What stops other vehicles is a severe dip and rise that will jack-knife everyone else towing or even some 2WDs. Vehicles other than 4WD can take the reverse track at the camping area for about 1 km to another camping area. We stayed 3 weeks looking out over the river and "pigged out" on huge yabbies. We caught so many, we threw back the "tiddlers". I also caught over 100 carp but not one yellow belly. The carp fed the local birds. Bring your own firewood. Not a lot around unless your adventurous.
