Temporary closure for Eumungerie Recreation Reserve, New South Wales



Update April 4, 2024: The Secretary from Eumungerie Recreation Reserve has advised this site is reopened after a temporary closure. Find updated fees are now $20 per night ($10 unpowered) and pleaew update your guides with this phone number: 0427 831 114 (and contact details in the CAMPS Australia Wide App).

Eumungerie Recreation Reserve Campground will be closed to all campers from November 1, 2023. Please amend the entry in your CAMPS guide – and note the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App is already up to date.

Chris Shepherd, Former President of the Eumungerie Recreation Reserve Trust said, “We are very reluctant to do this as we have built up a really great following over the past twelve years and have made over $100,000 worth of improvements to the whole reserve.”

“Unfortunately our excellent caretakers of the past four years have decided to go back on the road again themselves. As well, we are in the process of a changeover to the Trust committee. We are hopeful of reopening the campground at some time in the future.”

No doubt the community will miss the RV travellers and their support of local business, too. Gilgandra to the north has four freedom camps in town, as well as several caravan parks. Additionally, Hows the Serenity Camping Ground is the closest campground to the south.


There was some good news. Chris stated, “We would like to think the camping will be up and running again sometime next year (before the busy period for us – April to September).”

Chris also told us, “Many thanks for your very helpful books and App. They are much appreciated by all our campers.”

Thank you, Chris! It is wonderful that campers have injected so much cash into the community! We hope the site is up and running soon and naturally, we will keep everyone posted.

If you would like to be the new caretakers, please let them know. The latest contact information is available in the updated, and now FREE, CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App.
