Benarca campgrounds are sprawled within Benarca Forest, a large 206 hectare area. With the hum of cicadas and corellas and the majestic Australian river red gums, it's hard not to feel immersed in nature. The 9 Benarca campgrounds offer impressive views of Murray River from your tent, campervan or caravan site.

Enjoy a walk along the river, mountain bike ride at the nearby Five Mile mountain bike trail, or a spot of birdwatching. For those who don't mind getting their feet wet, there's paddling, fishing and swimming. Its location, in Murray Valley Regional Park, means it's dog-friendly too, so your four-legged friends are welcome to join in on the family camping trip.
