    Unhappy Cox's River Camping Area.

    "UPDATE" As of 11/12/2011
    I wouldn't bother going to the camping area now as they have closed it all off. There is plenty of camping for tents and walkers but those of us that enjoy vehical based camping have pretty much been shut out. It is disgusting, I have been going there for over 20 years.
    The owner of the "ECO LODGE" has been complaining and she may be within her rights as there have been some idiots in there tearing the place up.
    All the camping area is fenced of so that no vehicals can enter.
    If you feel passionate about this please ensure that you phone the Land Managment Authority in Orange on 02 63914300. If enough people complain we might be able to have some more land opened up for us. The river is fenced so you can no longer park down there, if you intend on camping there, take your tent.

    thats shocking!!! it was a beautiful camp site!!!! used to love camping there and was thinking of going down there in next 12 months or so for a 4wd trip have some people up here interested in doing it. guess we will be looking for camp sites on top of the range or down in little valley dont like camping on top of the range there as weather can be unpredictable. i will definatly be making a phone call tomorrow

    I emailed Alison from the Six Foot Track Heritage Trust last night, below is what she had 2 say. What a bummer.... another spot in NSW getting closed off


    Hi Todd,

    The trust has only recently installed a post and rail fence around the camping area and along the river. It was installed for the safety of the bushwalkers who are camping as there has been an increase in vehicle visitation, and with this unsociable behaviour and illegal activities. You can at the moment still get through the gate to the north and turn around down towards the river. This gate will be locked at some stage in the future however as it is access to private property. There is still room to park vehicles outside of the camping area but you can no longer drive into the camping area.

    Regards

    Alison Spurway

    That way is not completely banned but because of previous few hazards that way was banned for a time but the complete ban was opened later. I personally have not visited the way but just let you know that i got this news one of my friend/buddy who is living there..So i am not saying this that it is certain and final but i am just passing the information to those who have the same question about that way.

    I'm pretty sure its closed off to vehicle access, I can't find the email but I'm sure I emailed them a few months back and Alison said it was now closed

    Might head up this way this weekend for a look around. If anyone's in the area....We might do one night at Mt Walker and one in Jenolan SF. Hopefully the tracks will be dried out by then but it will be freezing.
