There are plenty of places to camp in the national park, with campgrounds and riverside camping being popular with fans of nature, bushwalking, birdwatching and fishing.
Not far from the entrance is the Barmah Lakes Day Visitor Area and Campground, a spacious area that also serves as a departure point for many of the organised tours of the region.
Another quiet and lovely spot, deeper in the park, is the Thistle Bend Camping Area. It’s a smaller campground with limited sites and is based on a first-in first-served basis (no bookings). Park tracks provide access to 112 kilometres of river frontage, so there’s no shortage of riverbank spots to pitch a tent.
