G'day zj, I'm sorry to say, but you're about 13 years too late to find a decent campsite on the myall lakes(all national pranks run now). Instead why don't you hire a houseboat from Bulahdelah and crusie the lakes that way.

We've had a couple of enjoyable stays at Legges Camp (now known as Ecoshores) on the Myall Lakes. Legges Camp is on the western shores of "The Broadwater" and accesible from just over the northern side of the Myall River at Buhladelah - follow the signs.
The camping grounds have (a) cabins, (b) powered sites and (c) unpowered sites and which is where we stay.
A few years ago some campers on the eastern shores of Myall Lakes were killed by falling limbs, so instead of NPWS doing an audit of risky trees they took the easy way out and simply fenced off the available camping sites thus prohibiting overnight camping but permitting lunchtime picknickers, and so forcing campers to places such as Legges Camp (this is not to suggest there's anything wrong with Legges, there's not - sandy beach, wildlife, etc and the amenities block is just a bike ride away).
Presumably the NPWS determined that risky trees would only shed their limbs during the nights when campers were around and not during the day when only picknickers were there - clever scientists &/or co-operative trees (forgive the sarcasm).
Try it, you'll like it.

We were at Myall for the first time at Xmas....We stayed at the ecopark you mention....it was great shalllow water for at least 100 metres for the kids to play in and the ski boats we had with us all tied up at the back of the tents.

Good for this type of break but terrible if you want some peace and quiet.

A better bet is seal rocks, just a little further north. Quiet van park....I assume you could bush camp around the area though suggest you check out NSWNP service. A little bit of dirt road (no probs in a hiace) keeps all but those in the know out of the area.
