Pinch River campground, in the southern (Lower Snowy) precinct of Kosciuszko National Park, offers a large, peaceful camping area nestled by the river, surrounded by tall eucalypts, cypress pines and flowering wattles in spring and summer.
Enjoy swimming, fishing, liloing and paddling from dawn to dusk, or set out on bushwalking, mountain biking or horse riding adventures on some of the many great trails in this section of Kosciuszko National Park, including Pilot Wilderness mountain bike ride.
Autumn and spring are warm enough to enjoy the water, without the extreme heat that summer can bring. During winter, this area also provides a place to escape the cold and ski resort crowds in Jindabyne.
Resident kangaroos, wallabies and emus can be seen around the campground during the day, while wombats and quolls can be spotted in the evening.
