Camping area description

Mitta North Road Camping Area 1 provides camping and fishing on the banks of the Mitta Mitta River, approximately 6km north of Mitta Mitta, with access off Mitta North Road (refer to the map below).

This camping area is on a licensed Crown water frontage that has been designated for camping. Before visiting this site, find out about access to Crown water frontages.

Parking is available next to the camping area. The camping area is mostly flat and provides excellent camping and river access.

Camping is only permitted in a specifically designated area on this frontage (see map below). Other areas of Crown water frontage can be accessed for recreational activities other than camping, such as fishing, walking, and picnicking.
