Rocky Plains Trail – Campground – N.S.W


[/text_output][columnize id=”” class=”” style=””]

The Rocky Plains Campground is situated West of Adaminaby around half way between the turn off to Providence Portal and the Eucumbene River Bridge at Kiandra.
If traveling from Adaminaby the turnoff to this campground is on your right.
If you end up at the Sawyers Hill Hut you have just missed the turn and will need to do a U-turn and head back down the highway a few hundred metres with the Campground Rd on your left.

This very large camping area is nestled between hills with a lush Eucalypt forest and is a major staging point for horse riders into the mountain areas North West towards the Blue Waterholes locality.

A well formed all weather access gravel road leads around 300-400m to a junction where one of two single pit toilets that service the campground can be found. This toilet is unserviced so you will need your own toiletries.

Please be aware that at the writing of this review there were some largish rocks protruding from the road near the turnoff at the highway. Vehicles with lowish clearance will need to exercise caution but it is not an impediment to entry.

The road itself is an embedded rock construction, not so much smooth gravel, so it is a little rough but relatively easy to traverse at low speed.

The road to the right at the junction leads to a large open flat paddock area suitable for large motorhomes, camper trailers, caravans and obviously horse floats for unloading. Another unserviced pit toilet can also be found here.

Following the road up the hill at the junction leads to a smaller camping area in the bush.

There are some flat areas here suitable for smaller vehicles and campervans, car and tent campers, however turning is relatively tight so large towed vehicles are advised to stick to the larger paddock area.

Despite being on a slight slope there is ample room for tent campers on the well grassed area just to the right of the flat area on top of the hill. This area is also away from the Eucalypt forest so is far safer for tenting.

Formal metal shrouded fire pits are not provided here, however there are plenty of informal camp fire pits scattered throughout the camping area. Just remember to be aware of Fire Danger periods when lighting camp fires in the National Park.

This camp ground has no water access that I could find, so you will need to bring enough water for the duration of your stay. The closest water is probably the Eucumbene River another 10 Kms or so down the Highway at the Old Kiandra Goldfields.

A walking / Horse riding trail leads into the Mountain areas towards Blue Waterholes from the top end of the campground.

There is also no phone access here.

The is a beautiful and serene place and is well worth visiting even it’s just a stopover for a night or two.

I hope you enjoy your visit here.
