Dispersed camping on broad beaches by the Murray River, surrounded by flood plain forest - River Red Gums, billabongs and swamps.
Prolific bird life. Distant, background highway noise. Forges No 1 Beach is broad and large, partially grassed with WC, but open with little shade. Little Bruces Bend also has a large beach, BBQ and an informal boat ramp but is very open with little shade. Forges No 2 Beach (0.5k north off Forges Bend Track) is shaded by immature Red Gums over short grass - a pleasant bush camp.
