Sofala has three camp grounds. They are all free of charge. This one as plotted on the map is 7 km east of Sofala, on the left just before you cross the Turon River. It has toilets and rubbish bins. Others are closer to town but are bush camps with no facilities. Wonderful place to camp beside the river or join others on the higher grounds. Weekends it gets busy. 1987 was a big flood and washed away the old camp ground. So if you have a caravan its best to stay on higher grounds.
Up higher you can charge your batteries with solar anyway. The locals are very friendly and take you on a metal detecting tour with your own detector. You meet them in the pub. And for a cold beer they show you around. Relax or pan some gold in the Turon River. The water is cold but clear. Plenty of fire wood around and a few museums to visit.
