Secret camping spots in NSW
From remote campgrounds in national parks to holiday parks tucked away in secluded bays, discover some of the most beautiful secret camp sites in NSW. There are camping spots by gorgeous beaches, in UNESCO World Heritage rainforest and in striking outback landscapes with ancient connections.
On Sydney’s doorstep is the Central Coast, where you can wake up to the sound of the ocean at the Blue Lagoon Beach Resort, a family holiday park with powered sites for caravans and tents. In a quiet, private location in Bateau Bay, the resort opens onto sheltered beaches and stunning views.
Another lovely spot is the Budgewoi Holiday Park, on the banks of the tranquil Lake Munmorah near Norah Head on the Central Coast. The holiday park features self-contained cabins in green surrounds and is only a short drive from the Nora Head Lighthouse, a popular headland for whale watching.
