Campsite Burnt Bridge Campground

Burnt Bridge Campground is one of the first camping areas you reach when entering the Lower Big River State Forest Victoria Australia from the direction of Jamieson along the Eildon–Jamieson Rd. In spring, it is common to see canoeists negotiating rapids on the stretch of Big River between the Burnt Bridge Campground and the Big River bridge. You must supply your own drinking water and firewood.

The Lower Big River State Forest is a large forest that blankets surrounding Big River as it makes it way down from Lake Eildon past the Yarra Ranges. This is a remote and rugged area and campers must be self-sufficient. It was the setting for 19th-century gold mining exploits, and is now popular with bushwalkers, fishermen and 4WD enthusiasts. Access to the upper reaches of Big River is via Big River State Forest Rd just east of Cumberland Junction, and some 20 kilometres east of Marysville down the Marysville–Woods Point Rd. The lower reaches are accessed via the Eildon–Jamieson Rd or Big River State Forest Rd.

Please note that the Burnt Bridge Campgrounds are usually very popular during holiday periods such as Christmas, Easter, Long Weekends and School Holidays. Sites can’t be booked; we recommend you to arrive early to ensure you secure a camping spot. There are no charges to camp at the Burnt Bridge Campground.
