With tracts of native bushland, secret swimming holes and rivers to explore, it's easy to see the Blue Mountains as one big playground.
Home to a number of caravan parks and camping sites that provide stunning views, campers will be able to enjoy the picturesque Australian bush while also making the most of their trips with barbecues and other facilities. Whether you choose to stay close to Katoomba, venture out to Blackheath, or plan a trip to Jenolan Caves, staying at caravan parks and camping sites is a great way to see the wonderful sights of the Blue Mountains on a budget.
For those more intrepid campers there are a number of good quality camping sites that offer the chance to be much close to nature.

You'll need to check the camping restrictions before visiting these sites and be sure to leave your camping area as clean as you found it.
