Coastal Camping in Shoalhaven

Spend a few nights under the stars and soak up the incredible natural beauty of Jervis Bay and the Shoalhaven region. Choose from luxury glamping in tranquil bushland or pitch a tent in coastal campgrounds, and enjoy secluded beaches, beautiful national parks and plenty of family-friendly activities.

You can camp steps from the beach at Bristol Point, Cave Beach and Green Patch campgrounds, all located within Jervis Bay's beautiful Booderee National Park. Explore bushwalking and cycling tracks; swim in the surf; try fishing, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling; or get out on the water by hiring a boat.
