Camping with dogs on NSW coast

Postby mandy1 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 2:56 pm

I am looking for dog friendly bush style camping on the NSW mid coast...... we like to be walking distance from the beach.....has anyone been to a place like this?

We are new to camping "with a dog" and have never really taken note of pet policies before now.........

Thanking anyone and everyone in advance if you are able to help me :lol:

Stockton beach is still pet friendly as far as i know, i wouldn't swim there though and you'll require a NPWS Permit to camp or drive on the beach.

That and a caravan Park at Coffs right on the beach, the name escapes me though.

You sure? I thought that since NPWS took over it, they would have just said no dogs. Seems to be there policy in most parks.

Happy to stand corrected though. I'm still fuming about them closing so much of the beach and dune area off though :evil:

Yeah far as i'm aware you still can, but i will ask a friend who lives there and often camps in the dunes, he's not happy with the restrictions there now either.

I have been searching for weeks for somewhere where we can take our dog camping. Its hard to believe that a county such as Australia that promotes the outdoor life, has very limited options for families with pets??

I have searched many websites & books with little success.

I would really appreciate any suggestions in NSW - relatively close to some sort of water ie Beach, Lake, River etc?

Thanks for your help.

Try this link for camping near the NSW lakes http://www.stateparks.nsw.gov.au/

I can recommend Copeton Waters which is pet friendly.
