Bowmans Crossing FREE CAMP is a good option for the night if you are passing through the Upper Hunter region. You need to be fully self sufficient to camp here as there are no facilities.
WHERE IS IT?
10kms west of Jerrys Plains on the Golden Highway (NSW). Right hand side of road before crossing the river (Bowmans Crossing Bridge) when heading west.
**fees current at the time of this post
▶️ Large grassed area
▶️ No facilities
▶️ River access
This camping area is not too far off the highway so there was a bit of traffic noise but that eased by around 9pm.

There is another FREE camp in the township of Jerrys Plains. We have stayed at this spot as well. It is quite popular so can get fairly busy. Check out more information here!
