Trial Bay Gaol campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

Trial Bay Gaol campground offers campsites for tents, caravans, campervans and camper trailers in an enviable position beside Front Beach.

Pack your snorkels, swimmers, fishing rod, walking shoes and surfboard, because you’ll have time to use all of these when you’re enjoying this delightful campground and picnic area. And if you’re too tired after a day exploring the park to cook up a feast, treat yourself to a meal at the Trial Bay Kiosk Restaurant. It’s the ideal place for families to take a weekend break in the beautiful Arakoon National Park.

Thinking of going in winter? Make sure you take your binoculars – Arakoon is a great place to see whales making their annual migration north. And even better in spring as they make their way south hugging the coast and resting with their calves in Trial Bay, just off the campground.

**To keep visitors safe ALL camping in NSW national parks now requires a booking. For day visitors, please plan ahead and visit outside of peak periods (11am and 2pm). Check park alerts and visit COVID-19 updates for more information before visiting any park – **
