Hi all,

Looking for somewhere in NSW to go camping for a few days and relax!
Ideally a quiet place situated by river. Reasonably easy access would be good.

Love places like Bendethera, but looking for other places like this. I've been searching around but not having much luck with finding places that are similar.

Any suggestions?

I have just come back from a weekend around Sofala/Hill End. There are numerous campsites along the Bridle track worth checking out. The river is quite low but it is still a great place to camp.

I went to Wollondilly River station ONCE. Nice area, unfortunately there were a few ratbags around. One group even had a generator for their stereo, and had the speakers tied to a tree!! When I approached them and asked them to keep the music down, I was met with a barrage of abuse and told where to go. There were also dogs roaming around.
Due to my experience I would NEVER go there again. Maybe it was just a bad weekend.

We have enjoyed Wollondilly Station, very cold though -6 in the night and took till about 10 a.m. to get to 6 degrees. One side of the river like most places warms up more than the other and we were on the wrong side LOL. At that particular time you could camp with dogs there. Also had a couple of horses come in for left over toast in the morning.

Especially if you have kids Wobeyan Caves is a large camping area, lots of visible roads for the kids with bikes, the caves and bush walks are available, regular toilets and showers, not expensive. A large kitchen dinning room set up for everyone to use, I think it even had refrigerators.

Newnes was a great place I thought we went in via black hands and was very soft 4WD but a nice drive. A huge camping area.

Hillsend we also enjoyed.

I think you have links posted ^^^ to most of these but a google search will bring them up.

Wee Jasper is good. Couple of different places you can camp by the River.

We normally stay at Micalong Creek

Wollondilly Station and Wombeyan Caves are both nice places to stay. Weekends get pretty busy , but should be quieter this time of year. WILL be cold though.

Cascades Camping Area , is at the Southern end of Duea Nat Park . . . accessed from the Western (canberra) side.

Thanks to all for the informative responses.
Lots of good suggestions there. I've been to a few of them, but certainly some new places to research and visit.

Thanks again.

Normally prefer more off the beaten track type of camping places but was VERY impressed with Coolendel recently. Sensational campground, right on the Shoalhaven River, firewood provided, full amenities (h/c showers, flushing loos - the girls were stoked) lots of tame wombats, wallabies and peacocks roaming around (kids went nuts!). There is a charge for camping but it is no more than if you got a site at a caravan park. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Just found these links:
