Lovely camp ground, flushing toilet with toilet paper! Ferry runs 24/7 by a lovely man we have affectionately nicknamed Barry Barrison (not sure his real name). Swan Reach is super close by, so easy to pick up items at the local general store if you forget something (like tomato sauce! 😬). The local pub does a great meal, and the takeaway shop is great. 5 day max stay at Tenbury. Lots of wildlife to see, amazing river views. It can be quite packed by caravans and RVs. We got there late on a wednesday night, and it was pretty full. Close to the road, but traffic is minimal, just something to consider if you’re wanting to get away from the noises of trucks and cars. No areas super close to get into the water and swim from, which is the only downside.

Great little free spot on the river's edge. Lots of birdlife to sit and watch. One flushing toilet which was clean! No grassed areas but that was ok. Lovely watching the ferry go back and forth at night.

Excellent spot for all types of camping. We Have personally stayed here a couple of times in a swag, tent and now will be trying the rooftop tent out tomorrow night! There is a great little restroom with a window, locking door, sink and a flushing toilet! All sites are fairly close and some are right next to it. There is a toilet dump stop to empty those porta potties etc. There are bins located on site which is nice. The views of the river and adjacent cliffs are amazing and with such tranquility of nature surrounding the site with the often sighting of emus and kangaroo's. If you are wanting to camp right on the river I would suggest having solid pegs and a decent steel hammer as the ground can be very hard to drive pegs into. A short ride across the ferry will get you to the Swan reach town centre where you can find some small shops for essential items, a takeaway shop and a pub. All in all highly recommend!

Good stop for a night or two, Easy walk to ferry and pub. Shame about the long term camps running their grey water into the river
