The Willows campground and picnic area is perfect for nature-lovers. Located in Murrumbidgee Valley State Conservation Area, part of Yanga National Park, this quiet woodland location is a birdwatching paradise, so relax and acquaint yourself with some local feathered friends.

Choose a campsite to set up your tent, trailer, caravan or motor home. Once that’s done, it’s time to explore; wander around the Wilga Woolshed and take in amazing outback views on a bushwalk through the park.

There are barbecues on which you can cook up a feast, or if you’re visiting between April and September you could build a campfire to cook damper and baked potatoes.  Later in the evening, relax around the campfire, under the stars, sharing songs and stories with your fellow campers.

We checked out this site on 29th March 2017 and found a dry dusty desolate campsite. There were no other campers there and we didnt stay either. The road in was quite dusty although it was not far. There are a few trees but do not provide a lot of shade. I dont know quite where you would find the scenic views but my old Dad always said beauty was in the eye of the beholder! I dont know where you would find the water for the swimming and fishing. There are some basic fireplaces provided but apparently fires are banned so I am not sure how that works. There are some picnic tables and long-drops.
