Called in today when passing by and took some photos and a vid on my smartphone.

The Corowa Caravan Park grounds are very nice and the amenity building is well underway.

Here are 5 photos of the grassy camping zone taken from a central position near the river access ramp.

....and here is a quick video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWTXFthLJ-g

I looked over the Ball Park lagoon area and it is still a mess but time will fix it I am sure.

The last few months have flown by and it won't be long and it will be time for the 2018 Corowa and the "Year of The Land Rover". I hope everyone's plans and projects are progressing well.

Hi everyone,

I spoke with Karen at Corowa Caravan Park today and sites are filling up so if your heading to the swim in and looking to stay at the CCP you might want to think about making a booking sooner rather than later.

Good luck with your projects !

Cheers,

Mick

Thanks for the video Ross. Nice looking boat ramp, it should come in handy to launch the LRAV (Long Range Amphibious Vehicle). I am doing a refit on the LRCV Mk 1 for this year's event, balloon tyers and snorkel extension and air mattress as life raft. Should put on a good show.
See you all there.
Cheers

So having never attended one of these events is that the best park to stay at or is the Ball park the closer?

Ball park is centre of activity untill sat stalls and unoffical swap meet all week but it gets very crowded corowa camp ground is only about 3 min away so its an easy drive or walk other camping grounds are no more than 10 min away at the most.

Totally agree with Booger Gary,

We camped on the oval at Ball Park last year, it was so crowded that if you left your site where you had parked your vehicle would be taken up on your return. Too many caravans, and way too crowded.

Cheers,

Mick

Yes ball park very disappointing last year, I've been going for many years and the new owners just didn't get it. Put huge caravans on "the oval" amongst us with army tents and vehicles. Yes Mick you'd come back and someone would have set up camp in your car parking spot.

The new place is keeping the whole back section just for us military guys

Can't wait, not long now!!!!!!
