Accommodating 20 sites, Putty Beach campground is the largest of Bouddi National Park’s camping areas. Located near Killcare, this Central Coast campground is easily accessed from Gosford and Sydney.

The campground sits just steps from the Putty Beach sand and offers good facilities in a natural setting.

When camping at Putty Beach, you can wake with the birds and start your day with a swim in the Tasman Sea. Fancy a bushwalk through the eucalypts? The spectacular Bouddi coastal walk begins at the beach’s eastern end and will take you to Gerrin Point lookout. Check out the interesting rock platforms in the area, enjoy a spot of fishing or a barbecue, and stop to say hello to the area’s resident brush turkeys.
