This peaceful campground is set beside Swampy Plain River and accessed via 4WD trails off scenic Alpine Way, south of Khancoban.

Pitch your tent by the water then sit back and take in the views back to the high alpine peaks of the Snowy Mountains. If you’re feeling active, discover this area’s historic stone huts, including Old Geehi Hut, along Geehi huts walking track. Mountain bike to Major Clews Hut, or 4WD Geehi Walls trail.

Old Geehi campground has great highlights all year round, from swimming and fishing in the river in summer, to views of snow-capped mountains in winter. In spring, you’ll find beautiful displays of wildflowers. A dozen threatened plant species can be found around Geehi, including elusive cress and black-hooded sun orchids.

Cook up a feast around the campfire as you spot the local wildlife, among them eastern grey kangaroos, red-necked and swamp wallabies, wombats, and possums. Dawn and dusk are the best times to try and spot platypus in the river.

Iconic species - Southern corroboree frog conservation program

An iconic endangered species, the southern corroboree frog, found only in Kosciuszko National Park, faces the grave threat of extinction.
