The Basin camping area (walk-in camping)
The Basin is open and grassy, and you can swim in the creek here if it’s warm enough. The Rock Lily Walking Trail starts here – a pleasant trip through eucalypt forest, rocky overhangs and rainforest gullies. The camping ground is on Walkers Ridge Forest Rd, 8 km east of The Letter A on George Downes Dr. There’s water in the creek, but you’ll need to boil or treat it before drinking or bring your own.

This campsite is located in Olney State Forest
Forested and user-friendly, Olney State Forest is west of Lake Macquarie, bordered by Wyong and Watagan state forests, and Watagans National Park. Bushwalking, waterfalls, wildflowers and swimming holes are just a few reasons why this is such a popular recreation area.
