Explore the Grose Valley, with its sheer sandstone cliffs, waterfalls and scenic walking, or enjoy the famous views of the Three Sisters. Easy access makes a day trips very worthwhile, but with such diversity it would be great to stay in one of the many B&B's and spend a few days soaking up the region.

Reading DECCW and Blue Mountains tourist websites, I figured that they don't permit fires here anymore. Have you heard this?

Hi Jess
Thanks for the question, I just gave the NPWS a call this morning and they said that there are still wood BBQ's down there and fires are still OK, but bring your own wood.
Have a great camping trip
Matt :)

Hi, my girlfriend were thinking of staying here on a Saturday night in a couple of weeks and I'm just trying to get a feel for how popular the place is.

If we arrive at 4pm on Saturday afternoon are we likely to get a campsite? Should we arrive earlier than that?

Thanks a lot

Hi Peter
I suspect you would be OK, but I can't be sure. At the moment this note is on the NPWS website
NPWS wrote:
Ingar Campsite Loop Road is closed due to wash outs and muddy road conditions. The day use area and car park remain open. This means that campers must walk from the day use area to campsites (about 100m).

With a 100m walkin I think enough people will not bother that you should find a spot. Have a backup plan just in case it is full. Would be worth getting in earlier in case you need to find a backup campsite.
