unknown - big walk IP:220.239.174.xxx | 2008-10-11 11:29:22

Anonymous - Beautiful, conveniet, a bit lo IP:124.170.103.xxx | 2008-10-19 20:23:38
Very beautiful campgrounds, with all the luxuries for a comfortable stay. If you drive to Palm Beach (multi-day parking available) and take a ferry, then there is no walking at all. Very convenient!

Beware, however, that Basin campground is near the city, so on Saturday night you will get the loud party crowds.

If you would like to see more of the Basin photos, you can do so on Flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/brightsea/sets/72157608171841683/

Been here for family and scout camps. A great campsite for a relaxing weekend or with childern. Facilties are great.

The ferry crew are use to campers bringing gear across so no hassles there.

There is a ranger present night and day who ensures everyone is courteous of other campers.

Apparently if you want to use one of the campfire pits you need to book it.

There's a geocache at the top of the hill above campsite and is well worth the walk up for the views!

Camping with a year 1 class, sounds like fun :) The walk is pretty solid, with a pretty steep section at the end. Look at catching the ferry. The walk in is a bit shy of 3km see http://www.wildwalks.com/bushwalking-and-hiking-in-nsw/ku-ring-gai-chase-national-park/the-basin.html for maps and notes

Hi Chris, Sure those parking fees would sting. I check the council web site and it looks like there are no fee parking near the junction of Iluka & Woorak Roads, about 700m south of the Palm Beach ferry wharf. http://www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/local_services/parking/car_parking_areas Hope that helps

Hi Amanda
Your boss has a good point, for a 3 yr this is a very long walk. (you can see a link to walking notes in an earlier comment). Ferry is a good idea. Parking near the ferry is expensive, maybe someone could drop you off, or catch the bus.
Enjoy your camping trip

Yep I have seen that, but not sure how you book, try calling the ferry and see if they can help. I don't think it is the ferry, I think it is a smaller boat that service the campsite and people staying o/n on their boats.

Hi Sandra, sounds like a difficult walk in with such a big tent. Consider carrying a lighter nylon style tent. Or catch the ferry in with the gear, You will want to chat with the ferry captain first, especially if the poles are long and difficult to get on the boat.
Have a great time

Hi Lucia
This is a great place to camp, great that you live nice a close. Dog are not allowed in National Parks (this campsite is in a National Park). Unless the dog is a guide dog. I am sure your dog is very friendly, but the ruling is not just about the possible direct attack but also about indirect issues. Check out this link, it helps explain why.

Hi Jason
No fridge, you might want to take some UHT milk. Keep an eye out for a boat that comes around most days over summer selling fresh milk, papers and some drinks for people living on boats. There is a drinks vending machine for cold soft drinks.
Have a great time.

How are you supposed to book this?

Would be good if they had online bookings like other places. I wonder if I just turn up will the ranger take my money and give me a permit.

Hi Brennan, sounds frustrating. You could try just turning up and pay when you get there, but it is a very busy time of year and you run a high risk of the place been fully booked up. Try phone NPWS main info line on 1300 361 967 and see if they can help, or try another number at Ku-Ring-Gai Chase NP.
Hope you manage to work it out and have a good time.

Hi Kaitlin
Good to hear you are planing a camping trip with your friends. NPWS has a policy for this particular campsite that says
NPWS wrote:
People under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/parkinfo/KuringgaiBasinConditions.htm
So you will need a responsible adult with you to camp at this campsite.

Hi Tim
There is no power at the individual campsites, but there is electricity on site running some of the facilities and lighting. Do note there is no road access to this campsite, boat or walking access only.
Sites can be booked, but outside peak season there is a lot of choice.

Hi Marcus
A great opertunity for the kids, they should love it. Phone NPWS to book the campsite when you know when you are going an see if you can book a site with a fire place, but I am not 100% sure you can. there is only a small amount of fallen timber, best to bring your own, fallen timber is important habitat for many organisms in places like this

Here is the link to the council parking info http://www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/local_services/parking/car_parking_areas Short story is it is a fair walk back to your boat if looking for a free parking.
You may walk to park south near Iluka Rd, and have someone else drive the boat down the pick you up from the beach there?? - just an idea

Greg - Wallabies IP:120.20.207.xxx | 2011-09-04 05:52:05
Hi There - just a warning for campers the wallabies and wildlife have been fed by visitors and have become a huge problem, they raid your campsite, you arrive thinking they are cute by the time you leave you think they are vermin. They are a big problem. The birds will sweep in and take food off your bbq while you are cooking it, and out your hands while you are eating. The turkeys jump on your table and throw everything off looking for food. LOCK UP your food. I think the rangers need to do something as the wallabies will not leave unless you really run at them, they are not afraid at all. There should also be signage warning campers. I haven't had a problem like this camping anywhere in Australia.

All round it is an awesome camp, clean and well maintained, just the wildlife that's the problem. this is coming from someone who loves and enjoys wildlife.

They also only have two fire pits for the whole campsite which is hopelessly inadequate.

That said we enjoyed our stay.

Hi Kate
You can park your car at the start of the walk. Westhead is locked between sunset and sunrise each day. Daily car fees apply. I have not heard of anyone having trouble with their car. The walk in is flat for the most part, but the last part is steep.
http://www.wildwalks.com/bushwalking-and-hiking-in-nsw/ku-ring-gai-chase-national-park/the-basin.html
Otherwise you can catch the ferry from Palm Beach.
Since it is school holidays, and a long weekend, I would phone ahead to make sure a space is available.
Happy camping

Kate - Great Camping Trip IP:210.56.70.xxx | 2011-10-04 01:12:10
I'm back from The Basin and just feel like sharing a bit of my experience. The Basin is a beautiful place to go camping, so many places to explore! My friends and I had a great time. ^^, Campsites aren't allocated, so we were able to move out tents when we noticed the water puddle creeping closer to our original spot.

The most difficult part is getting there. If deciding to walk from the start of the Basin Trail, the trail is relatively flat for about 20-30 minutes, then begins to go into a steep winding decline for another 20-25 mins so it can be pretty unsafe carrying a lot of heavy gear. The ferry is the safest option if you have a lot of gear but parking at Palm beach isn't cheap for an extended trips.

The birds do swoop and get pretty close to you so watch out! We didn't have any issues with the wallabies, though they can get close to your site as it is their normal eating ground.

All in all, a great trip. Thanks for the info admins and others!
Kate - Great Camping Trip IP:210.56.70.xxx | 2011-10-04 01:19:18
Oh! And The Basin is divided up into two areas, the Camping area and the Picnic area.

The camping area has one gazebo with picnic tables at the far end.

The Pinic area has a larger covered area with 5/6 gas BBQs and plenty of picnic tables. There's two fire pits in the on either side of the picnic area and 5/6 wood fire BBQs around the edge of the Picnic area with a few tables close by.

Hope this helps future campers. ^^,
Hong Co - Camping gear IP:49.2.14.xxx | 2011-10-10 11:41:52
Hi Admin and previous campers,
Hope this post finds you well. We're planning to go camping at The Basin this coming November, and just a bit worried about where to put our camping gear (just the tent and a few sleeping bags, and maybe some few cooking utensils) when we go bush walking on the next day. We're gonna get there by public transport (bus from Central station and ferry at Palm Beach), so won't have a car with us to store all the camping gear. This causes problem when we decide to go bush walking on the next day, and don't want to carry all the heavy camping gear with us.
Any suggestions?

Hi Hong
Thanks for the e-mail. Most people will leave this kind of gear in their tent and go for a walk, taking and particularly valuable gear with them. There is an obvious risk that someone might steal the gear, but it is rare at campsites like this. Generally more of a risk at caravan parks or where there is easy car access. Some people will put small padlocks on the tents zippers, obviously tents are easy to cut through, but it is more obvious then to other people around that something dodgy is going on.
Hope that helps and that you find a solutions that works for you.

Hi Ellen
There is a boat that does the rounds selling ice creams, coffee, newspapers, bread, milk and Ice. It is only in the area at busy times, which I think new years counts. I obviously can't be 100% sure you will link up with the boat. You could always catch the ferry, and bring some ice back with you.
If it just a few days you will probably be fine with a well packed esky. If you are worried there are a few places around Sydney that sell dry ice, that will keep things cold for longer.
Hope that helps

Hi Ali
I would suggest calling the campground office on 02 9974 1011, they should be able to tell you. I tried to call today, but did not get through.
Since campfires are allowed, I think it would be fair to assume that charcoal BBQ would be fine. You would just need to set it up in a way that they that leaves no scare. Maybe use it at an existing fire place. But best call the office to be sure. Let us know what you find out.

A group of my mates were planning on camping off season on the 5th and 6th of July before a friend moves overseas and were really keen on staying at the basin.

I had suggested that we have an relaxed outdoor movie night with a projector I own. Would there be any possiblility of access to electricity at the site for one of the nights, considering it is off season.

Hi Kevin
Sounds like fun. You will need to ask NPWS that one, I can't help you. I suspect that power access will only be one issue, you will also need to tackle a license for the video to be shown in a public space, deal with the noise and other potential environmental/social impacts. Let us know how you get on with it. Happy camping

BTW Kevin I have done a similar thing but in State Forests. Away from main campsite to avoid the public viewing issue, and used a truck battery and a power inverter. Also great with playstation :) -- 6m wide screen -- great fun.

If you have to be supervised by an adult to stay here do you know any campsite in the area that you can stay at if you're under 18?

Dear Matt,

Planning to do camping for the first time and we are thinking of The Basin as the place to start. Since we are have never been to one could you please guide to any place or website where I could find information about camping gears and accessories that is must for any campers and things that we cannot do without. Also planning to do something in May so the weather could be pretty cold at night. What about food and how do we keep meat and stuff fresh if there is fridge. Sorry for the silly question but any suggestion would help. Thank you Matt. Cheers, Ray
