There is a range of unpowered camping options available. No fees or bookings are required. Campers must be self-sufficient and bring their own firewood and drinking water.
Wenhams Camp is an excellent base for exploring the walking tracks in the granitic hills, many of which start from the camp. It offers individual camp sites with a separate Day Visitor Area.
The peaceful Killawarra Forest Camp, surrounded by Box-Ironbark woodland, was the site of a Forest Commission camp in the Depression of the 1930s. During World War II it was turned into an internment camp for Italian immigrants.
Both campgrounds are suitable for tents and caravans, and have toilets, picnic tables, and fire places with grills. Forest Camp also has a picnic shelter (rotunda). The maximum length of stay is 3 days. Sites are limited so large groups are asked to contact Parks Victoria on 13 1963 when planning their trip.
Self-sufficient campers will enjoy the dispersed bush camping along the Ovens River, with its sandy beaches, river access and fishing. There are picnic tables at some of the river bends but no other facilities. Permanent structures or camps are not permitted.
In dry weather, it may be possible to access some areas with 2WD vehicles including campervans and caravans, but exercise caution and look out for deep potholes and wheel tracks. Roads may become impassable in wet weather, even to 4WD vehicles. Check the latest conditions and road closures.
