Bookings

Bookings are not required for this campground.

The Willows campground and picnic area is perfect for nature-lovers. Located in Murrumbidgee Valley State Conservation Area, part of Yanga National Park, this quiet woodland location is a birdwatching paradise, so relax and acquaint yourself with some local feathered friends.

Choose a campsite to set up your tent, trailer, caravan or motor home. Once that’s done, it’s time to explore; wander around the Wilga Woolshed and take in amazing outback views on a bushwalk through the park.

There are barbecues on which you can cook up a feast, or if you’re visiting between April and September you could build a campfire to cook damper and baked potatoes.  Later in the evening, relax around the campfire, under the stars, sharing songs and stories with your fellow campers.
