Camping sites at Dalmeny campground   banner image

Camping grounds

Wake up to the sound of waves and the smell of salt at one of three beachfront campgrounds on the Eurobodalla coast.

Council owns and operates campgrounds at Moruya (North Head), Dalmeny and Mystery Bay. The campgrounds at Moruya and Mystery Bay are two of the few remaining natural camping sites on the NSW south coast, while Dalmeny campground offers modern amenities and prime ocean views right in the middle of town.

Mystery Bay campground is set among native bush, overlooks the beach, and is surrounded by National Park. It is arguably one of our state's best natural camping spots.

Moruya campground sits near the mouth of the Moruya River at the southern end of dog-friendly Bengello Beach and is adjacent to Moruya Airport.

Dalmeny campground has powered and unpowered sites and modern amenities with stunning views over the ocean and is located next to the local shops.

Before you make a booking, please read the general conditions for campground use to ensure an enjoyable stay for all visitors. We thank you for your cooperation.
