Quiet and secluded, yet easily accessible from both Talbingo and Tumut, Yolde campground is the ideal option for a weekend of water sports in Kosciuszko National Park.

There’s a boat ramp here, so bring the boat, your water-skis, canoe or kayak, and don't forget your fishing gear. Pitch your tent in a shady spot by the dam’s edge or amongst the red gums and stringy barks, before hitting the water.

After a day on the water or exploring nearby walking tracks and lookouts, sit back, enjoy the scenery, and keep an eye out for the area's countless kangaroos, as well as emus, wallabies and echidnas. You’ll find picnic tables and barbecues at the nearby picnic area, too – just the right ingredients for enjoying that fish you hooked earlier.

Conservation program:

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. Saving Our Species aims to prevent this from happening by battling chytrid fungus, protecting frog habitat from pests, and fostering a captive breeding program.
