If you like camping, this is the place for you. Pitch a tent and enjoy the peace and serenity. I spent some of my school holidays here with family & friends and miss it. There’s rapids, kayaking, bushwalking. The facilities are good with showers, toilets,...More

I have been going here for a long time. Honestly it never disappoints, the campsites are large, allow campfires, have toilets and showers, great for fishing and swimming in the river with kids. Its far enough into the bush to feel away from the city....More

We had a large group of friends for the Easter weekend and had a great time. Facilities were cleaned frequently during busy periods and although it was booked out you didn't feel over crowded. Lots of area to camp so you don't have to be...More

This camping spot is a must!! It is such a beautiful part of the world! It is a bit on the expensive side of camping but it really is worth it, especially in summer! The toilet/shower blocks are lovely and big and the park is...More

Very pretty spot, situated on the Shoalhaven river, well away from the main road. There are lots of different camping spots in separate plots, as well as simple but practical cabins and a bunkhouse. There are plenty of spots to swim and it is a...More

Sorry... for some reason I never got a notification of your question and only just stumbled upon it! I’m not sure about the cabins... we only camped and there are no powered sites, nor is there any power in the shower blocks.
