Crowdy Gap Campground - Crowdy Bay National Park

National Park - New South Wales


The only campground at the southern end of Crowdy Bay National Park, Crowdy Gap campground is located behind the sand dunes on the edge of Crowdy Bay on the site of an old dairy farm.

Set up camp among the banksias and pink-barked angophoras, inhale the fresh coastal breeze, and unpack your swimmers for a beachside camping holiday. It’s an easy walk through lush rainforest and sand dunes to Crowdy Beach. Spend your days diving into the clear blue waves, fishing, and walking the golden beaches. As the sun sets, gather together and cook up your catch over the barbecue.

A place of significance to the local Birpai Aboriginal people, shell middens are dotted through the dunes, indicating this was an area of plenty for fish, shellfish and wallabies.

Camp site clean and well maintained. Drop toilets, not too bad with toilet paper. A couple of open outdoor showers, cold water for washing sand off. Look at camp map for site sizes. Very peaceful. Unsealed road rocky and small potholes, just take it easy. NSW Parks phone bookings impossible, only way is on-line. One Bar reception so try to book before you arrive.
