Big Horse Creek Campground is open all year and is a popular base for anglers who launch their boats using the cement boat ramp. Camping facilities are basic. Caravans accessible only off the Victoria Highway.
Judbarra / Gregory National Park covers an area of around 13,000 square km in the transition zone between tropical and semi-arid regions of the Northern Territory.
The Park features spectacular range and gorge scenery and significant traces of Aboriginal culture, European exploration and pastoral history.
The campground is located at the Victoria Highway, 10 km west of Timber Creek.
The Park may be reached via the Victoria Highway from either Katherine, Kununurra or the unsealed Buntine Highway.
Judbarra / Gregory National Park can also be reached via the unsealed Buchanan Highway as well.
Please note: GPS Co-Ordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the National Park entrance. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
