Bents Basin offers a camping experience that is within easy reach of urban Sydney suburbs. It’s an open, grassy campground bordered by trees on one side and featuring Bents Basin on the other.
Take your pick of campsites, pitch your tent or bring your caravan or trailer along. It’s a great choice whether you are going family camping or camping with a larger group.
Once you’ve set up camp, what you do next is up to you; relax by the Basin, take a walk along Caleys lookout track, go for a paddle or try your hand at fishing, or if you’re feeling hungry, start up the barbecue to cook your lunch.
You’ll find excellent facilities, including a camp kitchen ideal for group bookings and hot showers – a welcome luxury after a day exploring this park.
Things to do:
Wombats aren’t just cute – they’re also 'nature's bulldozers' and the most intelligent marsupial. In Bents Basin State Conservation Area they're threatened by mange. Help us treat them to ensure their ongoing presence in this area.
For some, camping's as natural as hopping is to kangaroos. For others, it's full of frustration, mishaps and teeth-gritting ‘woulda coulda shoulda’s’. Arm yourself with these hacks and you’ll be the envy of fellow campers.
