Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
Camp Medlow is located in Medlow Bath in the upper Blue Mountains, and is just 800m from Medlow Bath railway station, and only 8 minutes drive to Katoomba or 5 minutes drive to Blackheath - so is conveniently located close to all the key attractions, like Scenic World, the Grand Canyon, the Three Sisters, plus all the amazing tracks, trails, bushwalks, and abseiling and climbing locations that the upper Mountains is famous for. You can pitch up to two tents on the level and very secluded campsite where you'll have complete privacy in a fantastic bushland setting, which backs directly onto Blue Mountains National Park. The campsite is directly in the centre of 3 acres of natural open forest comprising many old and tall Blue Mountains Ash eucalyptus trees (Eucalyptus oreades), Banksias, Waratahs, and Wattle. The property is also home to Gang-gang and black Cockatoos, parrots, owls, magpies, spotted-tailed Quolls, possums, Eastern bent-wing bats, and wallabies. Camp Medlow is for TENTS ONLY. Camper vans, caravans, and car rooftop tents are NOT permitted. This is because you can't get your car/van to the actual campsite where you pitch your tents. It's just a 50m flat walk along the rustic trail to the campsite from the car park - so you'll need to carry your gear to where you'll set up your tents. There is designated parking for two cars (not camper vans, caravans, or rooftop tents) on the Beaufort Street (dirt road) side of the property. The level campsite is placed next to a rocky outcrop that features a traditional camp fire circle and is shaded by a big old Ash tree. We ask that if you choose to have a campfire, then please only use the existing camp fire circle so as to protect the property, the flora, fauna, and minimise the impact to the environment in general. Important fire safety - Remember, fires are not permitted during total fire bans days, so check the current restrictions before you light up. We also would request that you bring your own firewood, and do not use firewood from the property, as fallen branches and logs can be homes for native animals and critters - and we don't want to impact them. We also ask that before you go to sleep at night, and when you leave the property, that you have fully extinguished the fire with water - do not leave the fire smouldering. Our community in the upper Blue Mountains is regularly impacted by bushfire, and our neighbours and friends have lost their homes - and everything - during these fires, so please be vigilant and responsible with any open fire. There is no water available at the property, so please bring your own - both for drinking, cooking, and to extinguish the campfire. There are no toilets on the property so you must bring your own camp toilet that you take with you when you leave. Do not dispose your human waste on the property. The Grand Canyon Walking Track, which is in Blackheath, is 10 mins up the road from the campsite and Blue Mountains National Park is right at your tent's doorstep.

A peaceful experience staying at Medlow Bath camp. Despite the wet weather, I had a nice stay and it seemed remote but clearly still very conveniently close to Blackheath and Katoomba. Highly recommended!

Awesome site! Feels secluded despite being a short drive into town. Heaps of space for a 4-person tent, ideal for two campers. The mist through the trees during our stay was especially magical. Short drive to great hikes.

This is a really beautiful, special, quiet site - somehow so close to Medlow Bath and so remote-feeling at once. Surrounded by native bush, with many honeyeaters and magpies. It’s very sheltered from the wind, and staying there in summer we woke to a huge sky full of stars. Would definitely come back.

A little trouble finding the spot but once we did it was great. Unfortunately, we did camp on a Saturday night and there was a local house party which had music blasting til 12:30. The spot itself was really nice and otherwise quiet. Tons of birds in the morning with chirps and calls

Beautiful site in very quiet, low key location. Just likea National Park campground only better as there is only one site so no neighbours or traffic . Toilet/ water/ rubbish drop off were all relatively close by in a nearby park so didn't cause any real inconvenience. Some highway/ train noise on one night which was unexpected. The campsite and parking areas weathered a torrential down pour very well with no mud. We enjoyed our time here - it was a great respite from the intense crowds along the walks.

A native paradise
Camp Medlow was a gem! Close to everything, but far enough away that you can escape the hustle and bustle of the thoroughfares. The campground is set amongst beautiful native flora teeming with a menagerie of bird life. Would gladly stay here again.
