The turn off to the campsite is opposite Murray Jackson Dr on the Snowy Mountains Hwy about 3 km east of Talbingo. The campsite follows the narrow dirt road from the NPWS 'Jounama Creek' sign. The road passes a large clearing on the left, then comes to a toilet and other facilities at the campsite.
You can park a caravan, trailer, or a tent in this campground There are a total of 100 campsitesThis large campsite is on the bank of Jounama Creek, not far from the Tumut 3 power station. The campsite is split into three main areas. The built-up area is near the wheelchair-accessible toilet, with space for caravans and easy access to the creek. A little further downstream (the clearing you passed on the way in) is a great area for tents and camper trailers, with a short walk to the toilet. Further down the road, there is more camping, not suitable for caravans or trailers, and with no facilities. There is plenty to explore in the area, including walks along the creek and playing in the (cold) water. Talbingo has some offerings with some info on the power station, a 9-hole golf course, a small shopping center (supermarket open 7 days), country club, service station and more.
