      Booking a site

      Full payment at the time of booking is required for camping at Booderee.
      Bookings are essential and may be made up to four months in advance. They are not transferable and sites cannot be sublet.

      Weekend sites at Green Patch and Bristol Point are generally fully booked up to a month in advance during the warmer months from October through to May. Sites at Cave Beach are more readily available, but do require you to leave your car and walk to the campsites located 300 metres from the parking area.

      The pricing structure is based on the size of the campsite and the number of tents and people that can be accommodated on each site. We have large and standard sized sites, walk-in sites (where vehicles are parked off site) and drive-on sites where vehicles can be parked next to tents

      What to consider

      Dimensions of your tent, tents or van. 'Kitchen tents', annexes, awnings and gazebos must also be included in your consideration.

      Consider the number of vehicles you will have on your site (trailers and boats are counted as vehicles).

      Provide the registration numbers of all vehicles.

      Park use fees are included in your camp fee.

      Make sure you print out your ticket and bring it with you on your visit. You'll have to display this on your dashboard.

      Checking in and checking out

      If you have booked your Green Patch or Bristol Point site online you can proceed straight to your campsite without checking in at the Visitor Centre. But please remember to print out and bring with you your booking confirmation to display on your dashboard.

      If you have booked at Cave Beach please pick up your Cave Beach tent tag on arrival at the Visitor Centre or the following day if you arrive out of hours and attach the tag to your tent.

      Campsites must be vacated by 12 noon on the day of departure and left in a clean and tidy condition.

      Refunds and cancellations

      Cancellations must be made 14 days prior to arrival date in order to receive a refund (minus an administration fee - $50 for bookings made over the amount of $100 or $25 for bookings made under $100). ALL refund requests must be emailed to

      Camping etiquette

      Booderee campsites are intended for peaceful enjoyment of the natural environment and quiet family time. Loud music, drunken behaviour and offensive language is not acceptable at Booderee.

      The privacy of Booderee campsites is best protected by avoiding any disturbance of native vegetation in buffer areas between sites. It is your responsibility to keep all your equipment within the confines of your campsite.

      Open fires are not permitted on campsites - light fires only in fireplaces provided using firewood provided. Gas appliances may be used at your campsite, but note all fire including gas is prohibited on total fire ban days.

      Please do not feed wildlife as this can result in poor health, aggression and may attract pest species.

      To protect Booderee's wildlife and plants, animals or pets cannot be brought into the park

      Please do not dig trenches. Poles are provided for clothes lines and generators are not permitted as they disturb people and wildlife.

      Be aware that snakes, spiders and ticks all live in and around the camping areas and precautions should be taken.
