We stayed at the Riverglade Caravan Park in Tumut mid November 2023 for a couple of night. The park was fairly quiet for a weekend which suited us well. The less people around the better for us. The park was very well priced, we stayed on a powered site with water and it cost us less than  per night. The amenities were large and cleaned. The showers were large and here were plenty of them. The park also has washing machines and dryers as well as loads of clotheslines.
