The Ward River Camp Area isn't so easy to access, but it provides a private secluded camping area and the rough road excludes the rabble. No facilities whatsoever.
Life is easy here. Some have been known to go native after a while and forget to clothe themselves.

Great spot. No facilities. Limited Telstra coverage. Track can be very rough along the river.

Excellent campsites all along the river, with easy access to the water. Fishing and yabbying can be variable.
