Mount Royal Camping

Mount Royal Camping provides a private bush camping area in a forest clearing for up to 50 people - it is set up for group bookings. Close to world heritage listed national parks.
We only take one booking at a time, so you don't need to share with anyone else! Bookings are essential  -  we will not be able to cater for you if you just 'drop in'!

Mount Royal Camping is located on the south-western edge of the Barrington Tops, only 3 hours from Sydney, 2 hours from Newcastle and approximately 1 hour from the Hunter Valley vineyards.

The nearest town is Singleton, 50 km to the south. Picturesque Lake St Clair is about 15 minutes drive away, and offers fishing and boating opportunities.

Mount Royal Camping provides a bush camping getaway to bring your own tent and camp in extensive soft, grassy bush camping sites. Sorry, we do not allow pets (our property is a wildlife refuge).

Camping Facilities

We have a large, grassy 'bush camping' area. Powered sites are not available. Facilities for campers are shared with the bunkhouse and include a 6m x 8m covered eating area with benches, tables & washing sinks, drinking water from a rainwater tank, gas BBQs, and a bathroom with flush toilet and hot shower. A campfire area is also available (weather dependent, and subject to fire restrictions).

The nature here is breathtaking, and see all the animals in their own environment was really something different - Eva, Sweden

Creature Comforts

Facilities are basic, but the setting is awesome. Enjoy beautiful clouds, sunsets, and starlit night skies around the campfire. A large, grassed area is suitable for games and activities.

Normally, the bunkhouse & camping area is only used by one group at a time to provide privacy, peace and quiet.

Wildlife at Mount Royal Camping Area is protected and no pets, motorbikes or generators are allowed.
