Several dozen pleasant camping spots beside the Snowy River at the actual island. Or up the hill beside the airstrip or within the perimeter of the now abandoned Snowy Scheme township. Camping is free and there are pit toilets. Can be frosty and windy even in January. A good base from which to explore the Kosciuszko National Park- still $17/day car entry in summer but $29 in the ski season.
