Jordan River, Jericho

We have stopped over in Jericho on one other occasion, in the Jericho Hotel. On this occasion however we have a caravan and we were looking for a camping location. We knew there was a park on the Jordan River but it took us a little time to locate it. The local council has blocked some of the streets with a levy so the directions we had were of little use. Eventually we found our way in and we were happily surprised. Later that night we met up with John and Sybil, who are travelling in a mobile home named "Two Easy" and Graham in a caravan. We had an impromptu river side 'Happy Hour' OR Three! John was keeping us refreshed with beer from his 'Home Brew'. We were sorry to leave there the following morning. We called into the Jericho Hotel on leaving camp to top up on essential supplies and learned that the Hotel might be closing in 2013, that will be bad for the town.

Our pleasant camp site beside the Jordan River.

Walk down from our caravan and this is the sight you see.

Must be 'rest time'.


  1. Are doing any fishing at this great places toy two find

    1. Hi Lee and Jim, No time for fishing here mate, seem to be driving all the time. Actually I do ask the people already camped at these places and there is not much happening on the angling side of things, not many yabbies either, so we have to have a drink or two instead.
