This campsite is located in Watagans National Park

Perched on Newcastle’s doorstep, 30 km to the south-west, this rainforested wonderland protects the headwaters of small creeks feeding the Hunter River and Lake Macquarie. There are unpaved roads from Cooranbong via Martinsville Rd, Freemans Waterhole via Mt Faulk Rd or Cessnock via Watagan Rd. If the roads are wet, you’ll need a 4WD.
