Stanton's Bend Camping Area

Free Camping - Victoria


Stanton's Bend is a large popular reserve just a few kilometers to the west of Rutherglen. An attractive setting on a wide expanse of river 'Stanton's' is popular with visitors and locals alike. A long stretch of sandy river beach offers safe swimming (usual Murray River warnings apply), and the low cliffs rising just downstream of the reserve makes for a stunning visual backdrop.  Free camping is available here with no facilities.

Accessed via Moodemere Road which is signposted off the Murray Valley Highway 8.6km east of Raitts Road and 5.4km west of Rutherglen.  Follow Moodemere Road 4km to entrance.  Follow the main track which loops around the river with dispersed bush camping along the river.

The access is well described and is in reasonable condition taking care to avoid the potholes within the reserve. Also beware of camping under red gums. There are a large number of sites both open and under trees. Seems ok for swimming, taking care. River used for skiing and fishing. Access to river with small areas of sandy beach.

Previous reviews are accurate. Accessed in a 4.5 t Ducato based motor home. Idyllic location. Ample space and very popular.
