There's nothing like rustic camping to remind you what's really important in life. Remote and unspoilt, Riverside campground and picnic area, in the spectacular Macleay gorges area, puts the wild back into wilderness. Relax by the crystal clear mountain waters of Apsley River, where the only stress will be choosing between swimming, canoeing or walking the Budds Mare Riverside track. You can also try your hand at catching bass or laze about listening to the sounds of the bush. If you're staying the night, set up camp under the fuzzy box trees, inhale some crisp clean air and feel the city melt away. You'll be pitching your tent surrounded by rugged mountains and dramatic rocky outcrops. With barbecues and campfires at this campsite and picnic area, there's plenty of opportunity to enjoy an outdoor dining experience, all the while getting to know the park'... **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).
