This large grassy rest area/campground is on the banks of the Murray River with lots of shady trees. Although the camping area is large, Alpine Way is very steep and winding in places and not recommended for caravans. Be prepared to share the area with lots of Eastern Grey Kangaroos. It is best to visit in the summer because in the winter the area is covered with snow.
