Blackall Barcoo Riverside Camp - QLD RVFT

Private Campground - Queensland


Barcoo Riverside Camp is located on the banks of the mighty Barcoo River, a low cost camp that is available to self-contained travellers. There are no designated sites so camping is free-range, just find the best spot that suits. The area is subject to flooding and can become very boggy when it rains (not often). There may even be some interesting locals call in for a visit from time to time.

  • Short walk into town. 
  • Dump Site nearby.
  • Showers and toilets within walking distance.
  • Shady sites.
  • Dogs are permitted on leash.
  • Fires are not permitted. 

Camping is only $10 per spot per night (max 3 night stay).

Your can pay at the Visitor Information Centre during business hours or if arrival is out of hours there is an honesty box at the entrance of the camp.

Stayed one night, plenty of room but be very careful if rain is around. There was a motor home bogged when we got there and had been for a week. He got out when we were there but does make for an enforced stay, black soil country and plenty of evidence of muddy tracks around the place.

They are now charging $8 per night. The golf club has parking for Solos before the rally $5 pn.

This is such a nice camp. It is easy walking distance to the town centre. It has toilets and there are showers a short walk further on. Water is readily available as are garbage bins.

This is a perfect camping site within walking distance of Blackall shops. We were visited most mornings by a Local on Horse back who would put out a welcome to all and answer any questions about the Area. Not a good site if wet weather is on the way. Can be extremely popular with travellers.

Plenty of room to camp for any sized rig. Very conveniently located in centre of town, behind the main street. Plenty of fresh water taps (although bore water) but Visitor Information Centre says is safe. Payment/Permit obtained from Visitor Information Centre $10pn per vehicle/caravan. Toilet close by. Dump point. Lots to do in town, the working heritage museum is a must, we got a free tour from a real character local. The Aquatic centre has a huge pool, with spa, sufficiently warm year round. Food at the local Barcoo Hotel is good adequate pub food, reasonably priced.

This is a great spot to camp. It is close to the shops. Has a toilet and dump point as well as a number of taps for fresh water. Blackall is a pretty town with lots of local attractions to see. Will definitely stay here again.

Couldn't be happier ... everything you need within walking distance big open layout so plenty of room if you don't want neighbors the town people very proud and friendly ... Put this on your must stay places and don't miss Stew and his show he'll tell you everything there is to know about Blackall listen for the whip crack

Plenty of space. No go in wet. Close to town. Showers and toilets a kilometre away in town so not very convenient.

Bush camp, pick your own site. Short walk to town and thermal swimming pool. Shady and open sites, some grass and some dirt. Thanks Blackall.
