On the banks of the Manning River, this stunning camping and picnic area is popular with four-wheel-drive enthusiasts and freshwater fisherman. It's nestled in cool highland forests and is perfect for a peaceful mountain getaway.

It's located in Barrington Tops State Forest, so you can bring your well-behaved dog, and best of all... camping is free in all state forest campgrounds.

The Manning River camping and picnic areas were upgraded in 2017, with the new site now located next to Henry’s Bridge on Pheasants Creek Road.

To help protect catchment/stream health, please take all rubbish with you when you leave.

Located in the State Forrest across the road from the National Park so more firewood than you can poke a stick at! And you’ll need it too as it will get bloody cold at night; Been here twice in winter; Incredibly quiet; Clean drop toilets; Plenty of pristine creek water.
