Mountain Arm Campground - Yengo National Park

National Park - New South Wales


**Please note: this is accessible by 4WD in dry weather only**

Grab a spot on the gently sloping grass and set up camp after an easy drive from Sydney or Newcastle. Only accessible by 4WD, Mountain Arm campground is a peaceful and remote rustic camping site which offers a great family getaway within Yengo National Park, near Windsor.

If you’ve got an off-road caravan or trailer, bring it along, otherwise set up the tent. Choose your spot beside the creek for a tranquil location amidst brilliantly flowering wattles before you set out to explore. The kids will love the shallow creek; great for cooling off on hot days.

There are trails for bushwalking and mountain biking nearby, and Big Yango loop trail offers excellent 4WD touring nearby. You might spot a wombat or swamp wallaby or even a goanna when the weather is warm.
