Camping area for kids

By ozmackem 14 December 2009 23

Been ‘camping’ a few times with my 6 year old boy in the back garden to get him used to the ‘camping’ experience. He realy wants to do some ‘proper’ camping now, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for somewhere the two of us could go.
I really want to avoid serviced campsites with plug sockets and showers and on-site shops and the like, and am looking for somewhere safe where we can wake up in the morning without being surrounded by other tents, or can sleep at night without being serenaded by drunken youths. I’m presuming there are plenty of places in Namadgi that are not too far off the beaten track and are reasonably easy to get to.

Anyone got any suggestions as to where we could find such a place? Or information about such places?

Cheers in advance.

Definitely try Wee Jasper – pet friendly, kid friendly. The main camping area has showers, toilets, playground and bbq, all right on the river. Other camping reserves not so many facilities but still fantastic and all have proper toilets. Micalong Creek has terrific swimming hole! It’s only 1 hour from Canb.

Oops – bad spelling on Orroral.

Saltwater Beach is booked out during school summer holidays. Don’t even bother making the drive without ringing the National Parks office first. If you avoid Victorian school holidays and Victorian long weekends, you should be fine.

Mt Clear is pretty good. Aurural Valley is good too. Avoid both in high fire danger weather.
