Michael - Please avoid! IP:220.233.116.xxx | 2009-02-21 00:32:48
My worst camping experience ever, the camping ground is full of drunk redneck bogans. I was jumped and bashed by a bunch of wankas for no reason what so ever... Please do not visit this area, it is honestly a joke. Michael.
Augh IP:220.233.110.xxx | 2009-03-24 10:41:43
Can someone confirm the above report?
is there a police report for this incident?

Spoke with the park and they advised that no such incident was reported.

My worst camping experience ever

I am sorry to hear of Micheal's experience.

I have enquired with officers at NPWS. No formal report was made about the incident described by Michael. NPWS staff are aware of an occasion in February when a couple of groups camping at Bents Basin became rowdy. They did speak to individuals in the groups who declined to make any formal report or to be identified.

National Parks staff take campers’ safety seriously. They told me that at this campsite staff patrol the campground and picnic grounds during the day. At closing time the park has a final inspection by a professional security guard, who escorts all non-campers from the park to ensure the safety of those that remain within the park to camp.

It seems that most people have a great time camping here, and that Michael's experience is an unfortunate but isolated event.

I would encourage anybody who sees anything like this, to report it to a National Parks staff. Formal reports make it easier for NPWS staff to address security issues and ensure enjoyable camping for everyone

Hi Rachel
I spoke to people at NPWS about this issue, and I got the impression that this was an isolated incident. They take comfort or their visitors seriously. I have heard of people camping there since with no problems (it is a very popular campsite).
enjoy your camping trip.

Matt :)

I'll be a study abroad student next semester and my girlfriend and I were hoping to visit around New Years. I was also curious if anyone had any creative ideas for getting to the park and back if we don't have a car. We're thinking of renting a car, or taking a taxi, or even a bus if that's an option. We've never been to Australia before so does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Steve. Public transport is not easy to here, no bus or train. You could catch a taxi from Glenfield Station (about 30km ride) will cost about $60-90 depending on traffic. There are plenty of car rental places - just Google them.
Enjoy your stay

Hi Caroline
It is a popular spot for family camping. There are a few natural hazards (as you might expect when camping) such as unfenced water etc. There are well maintained facilities. The nearest main shopping area is about 20min drive north to Wallacia.
Happy camping

Hi Dani,
I spoke with a ranger, there are three walks in the area. One that loops around the 'lake' Bents Basin from the picnic area. About 20mins
Another walk about 45min from the top of the picnic area that goes to Caleys lookout. (signposted)
Another walk follows the ridge south from the picnic area (on the south eastern side of the the Nepean River).
hope you have fun
Happy camping

Just been lookin at the fees... By the time I pay for two adults, two children and one car, I've been robbed harder than any bank could dream of rollin me for.

We don't need a powered site or commercial kitchen, can you simply camp [roughing it :-)..] without spending what you would staying in a cabin?

Quite surprised by expense or did I get the deal wrong?

Hi Roger, 2 adults and a car would be $35. This campsite is not for everyone, esp for people who prefer to 'rough it'. Here you will find hot showers, BBQ's and a very well maintained campground. If you prefer to rough it, then there are other sites that are better set up for that.

Hi

Just thinking of camping here for the long weekend in Jan. Are the sites spread out as will be celebrating a birthday so don't want to disturb other people camping? Also what is the swimming like there - is it too cold to swim?

Thanks

Hi Clarie, what a great way to celebrate a birthday. There are a few sites away from the main area. No site is is completely isolated, so there will still be a need to respect a reasonable quiet time. There is a large shelter that can be booked (for a fee), great for a larger party. Bents Basin is a large water hole great for swimming and fishing. There are several small sandy beaches providing good access. Signs there remind you that you swim at your own risk. It is a popular swimming spot. The water is about a 5min walk from the campsite.
Hope that helps
Happy camping

Hi Shelley. During school holidays (and long weekends) best to book as far in advanced as possible. But other times of the year there are plenty of spaces. The rangers are friendly, give them a call and let them know when you are thinking of going and they will give you a better idea.
Enjoy

Hi Anastacia.
Tents and friends are a good start. There are good facilities here, you will need to bring your food, firewood, cooking equipment etc. You can drink alcohol, please drink responsibly. $14pp per night and $7 per car per 24 hour period.

The scouts Jamborette is on there on the long weekend in June so the park is closed for camping for others.

I dropped some scouts off there yesterday and have been back this morning and it appears to be a lovely well maintained park

It is one of the best and cleanest camping grounds I have ever been to, they have great facility's like clean water, hot showers and toilets. I have no problem bringing my children here. Its a great place that's holds great memories for me and hopefully great memories for my children to look back on one day!!
JC - Nice Short Drive IP:123.243.39.xxx | 2010-07-24 08:39:06
Those people residing in Sydney. Bents Basin is neat place to go to. It's a short drive from Sydney (compared to long drives to get to camping grounds).

I haven't stayed there overnight. But I did check out the place way back - a friend/colleguea of mine who is very knowledgeable about this things kinda told me about it and so I did checked it out. I only stayed there for few hours. But in all I liked it.

I know these photos area bit old but thought I'd share it anyway.

Hi KB.
There are no powered sites, but there is an electricity supply to the campsite (to run the lights etc). It would be worth speaking with NPWS to see if they can organise something for your husband. See contact information on the Genral info tab for NPWS phone and e-mail.
Hope you have a great time

Hi Claire
"The park gates open at 9am all year round, and close at 7pm during daylight saving, 4.30pm all other times. Penalties apply for late exit."

This park (like any other) may be closed due to very high fire dangers or for other reasons to protect the park and visitors. These closures are rare. There are curently no closures in this park, they are advertised here http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/NationalParks/parkHome.aspx?id=N0618 if they happen.

Hi James
I took my kids (2&4) there about 10 months ago. We had a good time, and no trouble (except I forgot my torch - grrr). On look Long weekends and school holidays, like many other campsites, it can get noisy. But we where there on just an average weekend and there where only a handful of other people scattered around the place.
Hope you have a good trip, where ever you plan to go.

I was there last weekend with my husband. We had a blast, there was a group of around 50 including 30 kids nearby but they didn't make too much noise.
There weren't any drunks.
You can check in from 9 am & checkout anytime you want.
The best thing is that you can have a campfire & being so close to the city it still feels like you're away from everything

My first hand camping experience of this place (back in about 1995) was drunk aggressive rednecks with aggressive dogs. NPWS can say words, their actions are not consistent with those words. We had to leave with 2 small children at about midnight out of fear for our safety.
Jo - Mr IP:141.243.9.xxx | 2011-08-31 22:06:44
I visited the campground recently and was pleasantly surprised by the well kept grounds and the cleanliness of the facilities. Didn't experience any drunks or bad behaviour. NPWS staff were excellent. Best thing is that they now have an off peak rate for the non-daylight savings period $10Adult $5child, $7car remains the same. I would highly recommend the place for those wanting a relaxing weekend in a bush setting not far from Syd. Nearly forgot to mention, there is a kiosk that operates there now, coffee, hot chips, burgers, drinks and ice creams. They also take orders from campers for next day delivery. A lot has changed since 1995. Excellent place.

I took my Camper trailer to Bents Basin this last weekend. What a great campground! rubbish bins available everywhere, fresh water taps everywhere, shady spots available and you can spread out as much as you like! We had a campfire and we had enough room near our camp for the kids to play cricket. The basin is a short walk and a great authentic bush swimming hole.
Only one downside to the weekend was one bunch of clowns played loud dush dush music till midnight on the Saturday. But you know what -you can get idiots anywhere and it's no reflection on the campsite management - they were very friendly and helpful. We'll be back ...and soon!

Hi there,
We've seen the pictures of four metal fireplaces on stilts, are these the only campfires on the site or are there others we can pitch our tents close to and sit round? Our group consists of about 3-4 families so we're looking for a large area we can sit round with the kids and toast marshmallows! Would it even be possible for us to bring our own half drum to light a fire in?

Hi Patrick. Sorry for my slow reply.
There is (at least was - I assume still there) a security guard service that would drop in during the night. But in the unlikely event you have any trouble I would suggest calling the police, as you would in any other similar situation. I do understand that trouble as described here is rare.
Hope you have a good camping trip.
Matt :)

..fireplaces on stilts, are these the only campfires on the site or are there others we can pitch our tents close to and sit round?..

Hi again
check out the little dot in the first photo with the red and white caravan. That is a ground based metal fire place. You will need to call NPWS to ask about bringing your own fire place. They are very helpful staff there, I am sure they will be happy to help.

Hi Shiva
You will need to bring all your own camping equipment, non available for hire. In all these campsites it is important to respect other campers needs for quiet. Alcohol is permitted in moderation. It is not an appropriate place for a load late party.
Happy camping
Matt :)

Hi Shiva
NPWS have announced a program for gear hire and setup for school holidays time for this campground. You can find out more here http://www.wildwildworld.com.au/Events/WilderQuest/Bents-Basin-First-Time-Camping
The Shaggers - Great place IP:165.228.141.xxx | 2012-10-22 04:18:39
What a great place to camp for the weekend.
We are from south of Wollongong and it took us 1 Hour & 20 minutes to get there.
The Bush kiosk is great run by a very nice couple.
The amenities are good 3 min showers (free)after you pay to camp there
The Shaggers - Fireplaces IP:165.228.141.xxx | 2012-10-22 04:24:11
There are fire places every where
The Wood is $11 a bag and burns well.
It's a nice 10-15 minute walk to the basin and is worth the walk and this is were you find the bush Kiosk.
The park rangers were helpful and informative.
All in all was a great weekend and we would recommend to go there
Peter - Questions on Bents Basin IP:122.148.97.xxx | 2012-12-21 12:01:49
I have a few questions regarding the camp site. How spread out is it.. or at least the camping area it self. What I'm trying to say is that, it seems this is a popular camp site, so will it be fairly private for us? I might be going on several weekdays in the school holidays.

Which leads me to my second question, How far do you have to book in advance? And finally, Are 16 year olds allowed to camp without someone there being over 18?
If anyone could reply it would help, thanks. :)
UNHAPPY camper - Bent's basin noise restrictio IP:210.8.226.xxx | 2013-02-05 03:23:12
We went camping here last long weekend with a group of friends and there was violence and noise until 2.30am. Highly not recommended for a relaxing holiday. Placed a formal complaint because we only could barely stay that one night even though we paid for two. We could not get our money back nor get it credited. Think about booking a campsite here. Such a shame because it is a nice place, just has poor management of the campsite.

Hello,
Does anyone know how you can go about making campground reservations. The government website doesn't let you.
We want to visit on April 24th, which i heard is a long weekend.
Thanks
