Dunphys campground is a great option if youre looking for a Blue Mountains camping getaway, less than an hours drive from Katoomba and Blackheath. Offering 15 sites in a grassy, open setting with views of Mt Cloudmaker and the Wild Dog mountains, its suitable for both tents and camper trailers.
The campground makes a great base for day walks and fishing along the Coxs River, extended hikes to Kanangra Walls, and climbing Narrow Necks cliffs. The short, family-friendly walk up to Bellbird Point is delightful in spring. You can also connect with Six Foot walking track, down the road, or the 132km Katoomba to Mittagong trail.
Nature lovers are well catered for here. Keep an eye out for kangaroos and wombats visiting the grassy clearings, or wedge-tailed eagles and flocks of cockatoos above. History buffs can check out the ruins of an original settlers cottage nearby.
