Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at the Ruins Campground. Access to ocean beach and Wallace Lake. Excellent coastal views. Well laid out park which you book online. Very modern amenities, with hot showers and charging points for devices. Bush walks are probably more suitable for younger bodies but a stroll to either the beach or the lake is very pleasant.

Stayed at Kormans as the ferry was not in operation. Camp sites are all numbered and nicely sized. Toilets were drop and fine. Super easy to book on the phone. Great little stop for us.

With 40km of beaches, pristine bushland and one of the largest coastal lake systems in NSW, the Myall Lakes Park covers a lot of ground.
If you are staying at the holiday towns of Hawks Nest or Tea Gardens, it is easy to explore the areas around Bombah Broadwater, Mungo Brush and Little Gibber (Dark Point).
From Hawks Nest, we headed north up Mungo Brush Rd. Part of the fun was keeping an eye out for the small signs off to the left and right which indicated trails to various picnic and camping areas. There were more than a dozen so we just stopped at a few.
Many were just small, hidden pockets in the bushland or beside the river but they were interesting to discover. Stewart and Lloyds campground and the Hole in the Wall and Tamboi Picnic areas are all worthy of a stop.
Mungo Brush Campground is a good destination to aim for. This is a larger camp ground and as such has good (but basic) facilities including BBQs, picnic tables and a toilet block. It sits on Bombah Broadwater and is an absolutely unspoiled and scenic location. Several bushwalking trails either start here or pass through here so it is an excellent place to explore parts of the National park.
NOTE: You are required to have a permit to enter the camping and picnic grounds - these can be bought as an annual pass or a day pass online. Im not sure how often these are checked as no-one has been around to see our permit the couple fo times we have been here.

Had a lovely day trip around the park, caught the ferry at Bombah Point and strolled through the caravan park. Also visited several of the camping spots along the Myall River which are nicely tucked away. Everything is so lush and green and well maintained

I made a booking with them and I wanted to reschedule to date. Person name is Alex Jones or Cherly Cairns did not want help at all. They did not accept to refund as well. Their customer service is terrible and unprofessional. I do not recommend this camping to anyone. Campsite does not provide any facilities at all and very dirty.

We drove through the park to reach a great campsite near the beach at Seal Rocks. The tall trees are amazing! It was hard to find an easy route to view the lake, but the glimpses we caught were beautiful.

We have lived in the Hunter Region for years but had never had the time to vist Myall Lakes, and it really is a beautiful area to visit. Unspoilt beaches, rainforest walks, wildlife - it really is another world and just an hour up the road from Newcastle. Camping is mostly unpowered sites but in beautiful locations, so if you are self sufficient its perfect. Even just a drive through is well worth the detour from the highway.

Beautiful place to camp, green, lake is lovely, and not too crowded. No showers, but there are some in at Hawkes Nest beach, that is also the closest supermarket.

We launched our 3.5 metre Smartwave poly boat and 25 hp 4 stroke Yamaha at the excellent launching ramp at Tea Gardens between the Singing Bridge and Mumm's restaurant and take away. Threading our way up the magical Myall River between islands, river banks, sanctuaries, small settlements and National Park for 25 kilometres with about 35% 4 knot speed limits brings you to The Broadwater.

From there we continued up Myall River on the North Western shore of this first lake (rather than the Lakes at the north eastern end) we reached Buladelah - a total of 42 kilometres one way. Enchanted by black swans, sea eagles, hawkes and dolphins along the way. Took us 2.5 hours each way. Best to allow 3 hours if you observe speed limits and average 20 knots on the unrestricted sections.

On the return journey on the Lower Myall River we followed 8 dolphins feeding as the moved downstream through under the Singing Bridge to the oyster leases. It was calm so we scotted out on Port Stephens before returning to the launching ramp and dinner at Mumm's on the Myall restaurant. (Highly recommended).
