Bents Basin Campground

National Park - New South Wales


Bents Basin offers a camping experience that is within easy reach of urban Sydney suburbs. It’s an open, grassy campground bordered by trees on one side and featuring Bents Basin on the other. Take your pick of campsites, pitch your tent or bring your caravan or trailer along. It’s a great choice whether you are going family camping or camping with a larger group. Once you’ve set up camp, what you do next is up to you; relax by the Basin, take a walk along Caleys lookout track, go for a paddle or try your hand at fishing, or if you’re feeling hungry, start up the barbecue to cook your lunch. You’ll find excellent facilities, including a camp kitchen ideal for group bookings and hot showers – a welcome luxury after a day exploring this park.

Getting There and Parking

Bents Basin campground is in the central precinct of Bents Basin State Conservation Area. Two vehicles are permitted per booking. In most cases, you can park immediately next to your tent, trailer or caravan. There are also marked parking spaces where camping is a short distance from your vehicle (less than a 20m walk from car to camping area). Near the amenities block, you’ll find a carpark with 15 spaces and another with 5 to 6 places (a 30m walk from carpark to amenities block).

To get there:

  • From The Northern Road, take Greendale Road west at Bringelly
  • Turn left into Wolstenholme Avenue and continue to the park entrance. Please note, access is via Wolstenholme Avenue only.
  • Continue through the park entrance and follow the signs to the campground.

The entry gate to the campground on Wolstenholme Ave is locked daily from 5pm (May to September) or 8pm (October to April).

You'll get a gate code after you book, to enter/exit the campground when the gates are closed. Note down the code before you leave home because mobile phone reception is limited. If you did not receive the gate code after booking, contact 1300 072 757.
