The Basin campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

The Basin campground is the only place you can camp in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. This large, grassy area overlooks Pittwater, offering lovely surroundings and views.

It’s easy to see why this waterfront campground is so popular. At The Basin, you’ll find great facilities along with a picnic area, sheltered beach and an inland lagoon. The campground accommodates up to 400 campers.

Pitch your tent in a shady spot, enjoy a bike ride or a swim and see if you can spot the local swamp wallabies or kookaburras.

There’s no car access to The Basin campground. You can park at West Head Road but it’s a steep 2.8km walk to the campground from there. If you’re not up for the hike, arrive by water taxi, boat or a ferry which leaves from Palm Beach Wharf.
