9 Great Camping Sites in Jervis Bay (Complete Guide)

Last updated: May 7, 2024

Find the best camping sites and caravan parks in Jervis Bay, from secluded beach-side campgrounds to family-friendly holiday parks.

With so many things to see and do in Jervis Bay, it’s no wonder Sydney-siders love travelling to the South Coast each year for a short holiday break.

While there are many hotels to choose from in the area, Jervis Bay is also home to various camping sites and caravan parks. For many, going back to basics and being close to the beach or in the bush adds to the holiday experience, and Jervis Bay is an excellent spot for a relaxing camping trip.

The below nine camping sites and caravan parks in the Jervis Bay area are listed in geographical order. We’re starting in Booderee National Park, and from there, we work our way north to Huskisson, Woollamia, and Currarong. Note that bookings are required for most camping sites.

1. Cave Beach Camping Ground

Cave Beach is a unique strip of sand in Booderee National Park, so named because of a couple of fascinating caves on the western end of the beach. You can walk into the biggest cave, which offers a nice photo opportunity from inside, looking out over the beach.

The beach itself is quite small, especially compared to some of the other beaches in Jervis Bay. Behind the beach, you will find a nice lookout point and a large camping and picnic area, with many small kangaroos visiting.

The camping ground offers unpowered camping, with basic facilities such as toilets, showers, barbecues, and also fresh water.

2. Bristol Point Camping Ground

The second campsite in Booderee National Park is the Bristol Point Camping Ground, offering a secluded atmosphere in a lovely bush setting right behind the beach.

Camping at Bristol Point is walk-in only, meaning you can’t drive in with a campervan or a camping trailer. There is a parking area nearby though, so it’s not as isolated as it may sound.

Bristol Point Camping Ground offers unpowered camping, with basic facilities such as toilets, showers, barbecues, and fresh water.

Situated only moments away from Bristol Point, the Green Patch Campground is a bit more popular and also a bit more accessible than its neighbour.

Green Patch Beach and Iluka Beach are located right in front of the camping ground, and with Hyams Beach and Huskisson only a short drive away, Green Patch Campsite is both beautiful and practical.

The ground offers standard and large-sized camping sites and is both walk-in as well as drive-in, with showers, barbecues, tables, and fresh water to enjoy.

The on-site facilities are pretty good too, with a swimming pool, a tennis court, barbecues, and much more to enjoy. Some powered sites are also dog-friendly in standard season outside of school holidays.

If you prefer a quiet and peaceful riverside location over a spot next to the beach, go and check out the Jervis Bay Holiday Park. It is located along Currambene Creek in a beautiful bush setting.

What’s great is that the Jervis Bay Holiday Park also has its own private boat ramp and floating pontoon, so if you have a boat, a canoe or a kayak, there is even more reason to choose this holiday spot.

There are also plenty of accommodation options, from unpowered camping sites to premium villas and cabins. The facilities are excellent, and include a swimming pool, barbecues, laundry, and a kitchen.

Paperbark Camp Jervis Bay is also located alongside Currambene Creek but is a bit further inland and also in a more isolated spot.

What sets this camping ground apart from the rest is not only its tranquil location but even more so the African-inspired canvas safari tents that are built above the ground.

The tents come with outdoor furniture, full insect screening, polished hardwood floors, and solar-powered lighting. It’s like going back to nature, but with a little bit of luxury.

9. Honeymoon Bay Campground

The Honeymoon Bay Campground is located right behind the beach of Honeymoon Bay on the Beecroft Peninsula. Camping at Honeymoon Bay is very much going back to basics. There is no power and only portaloo toilets, but what you do get is access to a beautiful secluded bay.

This beautiful campground works on a first-come-first-served basis, with no bookings required. However, during the busy summer school holiday months, the camping spots are allocated through a ballot system, with applications closing on 31 August.

Note that the Beecroft Peninsula is also home to the Beecroft Weapons Range. As such, all camping at Honeymoon Bay is subject to the Australian Defence Department’s operational and capability requirements, and as a result, the campground can be closed to public access at short notice.
