Camping weekend - #openslather

Friday, not long after lunch, after Brett had knocked off work, we headed off on a short trip to the Glenelg River.

Just over the Victorian border, lies the Lower Glenelg National Park. We stayed at Wilson Hall campground. It has a boat ramp, a jetty landing, a great flushing toilet block and 12 good camping sites. If you want to be close to the toilets, book a site from 1 to 8. If you want to be closer to the river book sites 9 to 12. 

No one saw any snakes, we saw a dead one, that a previous camper had obviously killed, it was in bits, laying next to a tree. So be warned, they are about in Summer.

The campgrounds are in the middle of dense bush, it was dry and dirty. Despite the dirt, we had a great weekend.

All is good with the world, when Summer has Giggle Asaurus and a drink.

We stopped up river at the Princess Margaret Rose caves for a picnic lunch. We didn't have a cave tour, but got big pencils and ice cream from the shop. (You'll see Brett having a little
lay down on the bench behind the girls).

Stopped on the way back for some fishing

What is a campfire without marshmallows?

    1. No camper trailer Kaz, just a kmart(Stockman weekender)2 room tent we have hardly ever used. The last time was about 5 years ago! It's a beauty though and does the job perfectly.

  3. What a great spot and a great set up. I absolutely love camping and would love to do what you've done every now and then, just pack the car and go to a nice spot. Oh and marshmallows are a must! We also do bananas with marshmallows and chocolate, cover them in foil and put them on the hot plate. Absolutely delicious!
