Driving Directions

No GPS recognition past Murray Valley Highway.

Proceed to waypoint on Murray Valley Highway. At waypoint turn north onto Forges Pump Lane. Follow to the end of the road where you cross over a grid into the Reserve. Follow the Forges Bend Track to either No. 1 or No. 2 beach camps. Map pin is at No. 1 Beach Camp.

The track to No. 2 camp branches off to the left, while camp No.1 one can be found straight ahead on the main track. Very large rigs are best suited to No. 2 camp. The road to No. 1 camp has a couple of tight spots, but not impossible to get a reasonably large rig in.

Forges Bend has two distinct camping areas. No. 1 camp has a toilet and an open beach with more sun. No. 2 camp has a thick bushy stretch with plenty of shade.
There is a clean modern accessible longdrop toilet at camp No. 1. Big rigs are better suited to camp No. 2 which is off to the left (see road signs).

Both camps are on the bank of the Murray River with excellent spots to launch a tinnie. Relaxed laid back atmosphere and a beautiful stretch of the river.

Mobile phone signal for both Telstra and Optus but the signal comes and goes.

Shallow water and clean sand for children but fast current as you go deeper - beware! Excellent walking or cycling tracks.
