Blue Mountains City Council campgrounds


Blue Mountains City Council campgrounds are open to visitors within the Greater Sydney Region, which includes Blue Mountains LGA residents. BMCC campgrounds are not currently open to visitors from outside Greater Sydney, including Regional NSW.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we need everyone using the campgrounds to work with us to ensure the safety of all. Anyone entering and occupying Council campgrounds must comply with the following conditions:

  • Register your attendance at the site - send your name, phone number and email address to goodneighbour@bmcc.nsw.gov.au. Details will be held confidentially for 28 days and only released to NSW Health if contact tracing is required, should a guest test positive to COVID-19.
  • Ensure social distancing of 1.5m between yourself and other guests in sheltered areas.
  • Ensure there is only 1 person per 4m2 in covered areas.
  • Maintain good personal hygiene. Bring your own sanitary items, including soap, and hand sanitiser or gloves if you want to use them. The toilet facilities at this campground are maintained by Council and cleaned once a week.

DO NOT ENTER the campgrounds if you have, or you have been in contact with someone in the last 14 days that has flu-like symptoms, who has been diagnosed with or has a suspected case of COVID-19.
