Lake Eckersley campground sits on the shore of Lake Eckersley in the middle of Heathcote National Park.

This small, basic campground accommodates up to six campers. Lake Eckersley campground is also a great spot to stop for lunch or a swim when bushwalking.

You can access the campground by foot only, as Heathcote National Park is a vehicle-free area. Reaching the site involves quite a long walk, so be sure to take a Heathcote National Park map and plenty of water with you.

If you love the idea of self-sufficient camping in the Sydney bush, then look no further than Lake Eckersley campground.
