Richmond Valley Council is trialing a small free camp at the Casino Showground to cater for owners of fully self-contained vehicles.

The specifically-marked area at the Showground is limited to 12 vehicles for a maximum stay of 48 hours each. The Casino Showground is equipped with a dump point, however, all vehicles have to be self-contained, meaning owners will need to be responsible for their own water supply, sink, shower, grey-water storage, toilet and rubbish removal.

The camping sites are managed in accordance with Council’s rules and regulations, and is monitored by Council rangers, who regularly patrol the area.

Bookings can be made by calling Casino Visitor Information Centre on 6660 0325 or by emailing
