Beachside car camping

Beachside car camping

Hi everyone.

So my birthday is coming up and I want to escape for a bit. Thinking of car camping and waking up near the ocean. Anyone know of places here or nearby where I could do that? Don't mind a caravan park but want to be virtually on the beach with direct view of the waves. Not sure if national park had places like that.

There's a range of spots along the coast where you could do this. Ones that spring to mind that are immediately on the beach in a beautiful, natural environment are

Greenpatch in Booderee Natonal Park on Jervis Bay


Depot Beach in Murramarang NP https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/camping-and-accommodation/campgrounds/depot-beach-campground

For camping right on the beach, it's pretty hard to get closer than at Coledale in the northern suburbs of Wollongong https://www.coledalebeach.com.au/coledale-beach-campsite/

If you hop onto google maps and zoom in the areas you are considering you'll find a range of caravan and camping areas located very close to if not on the beach including quite a lot around Gerringong.

There are plenty of caravan parks along the coast which offer beachfront views. If heading south consider -

Kendalls On The Beach Holiday Park - KIama Beach

Seven Mile Beach Holiday Park - Kiama

Honeymoon bay - Jervis Bay / Greenpatch - Jervis Bay / Caves Beach Jervis Bay

Further south -

Pretty Beach - Murramarang National Park,

Mystery Bay - Eurobodalla National Park
