Known for it's massive Bush Campsites, 'Chapman Valley' is still Sydney's best kept secret! Picture this. Your weekend escape is relaxed from the very start - the car trip along the scenic winding Putty Road is slow and leisurely as you know you can arrive at any time for the self serve check-in. After signing in, you meander through this Beef Cattle farm, heading to your own designated camping area. A private corner of the property all to yourselves! After setting up camp, and showing off your awesome (of course) campfire lighting skills, you sink back in your camp-chair and listen to ...the bush.  And you see ...the bush. Not a single other camper in site. Oh, except the ones you invited with you of course! There they are. The kids running enthusiastically across the open paddock chasing after their footy, with Buster, the family dog happily nipping at their heels. "They'll sleep well tonight!" you think to yourself happily, as you sink further into your camp-chair and take a long drink on that ice cold beer. 1hr drive from the nearest town (Singleton), "Chapman Valley" is the perfect oasis for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle. There are no nearby shops so be sure to bring everything with you. The property offers over 100kms of bush tracks ideal for walking, push-bike riding or 4WDing. On site-horse riding is available, offering rides ranging from 1hr family rides to full day experienced rides. Check out our website for a full list of offerings. The Communal camping area is within walking distance of our amenities block, which offers flushing porcelain toilets and a hot shower. Bush campsites are fully self sufficient - BYO water & toileting system. All campers are required to take their rubbish home with them as there are no bins on site. Sites available for all vehicle types, from buses and large caravans to fully kitted out off-road vehicles.

A good spot if you are after some quiet time away from other people. No phone reception which is a good thing. Clean toilet and shower available at the office if required. A bit on the expensive side if you are self sufficient.

A perfect getaway from a busy schedule into the nature but not too far away either. Hosts Peter and Mary were very friendly and approachable and made us feel very welcome. Jess was very quick to respond to all queries before we got there as well. Thank you very much from all of our fellow campers from Douglas Arm 1 for letting us create wonderful memories to begin the new year 2023.

The office staff was super helpful and nice, very quick reply and found us a nice and convenient semi private place. The next day one small group of campers came to next us and we couldn’t hear from them only saw the tents between trees and bushes. We were impressed the facilities were so tidy and clean, the shower water was hot and strong flow. You may BYO the facilities or may take few minutes drive to there. We may come back again to explore other private sites inside the whole camping area.

Travelled by motorbike during the week. Communal facilities were good and clean. Only one shower. Jess kindly delivered the wood to my campsite as I could not carry it on the bike. Great expansive property and will be back for sure.

Perfect campground
Excellent communication and customer service. Toilets were serviced regularly. Vary spacious campground. We could see there were many people around but everyone could stay at a distance that can’t hear other groups. Strongly recommended.

Semi-Private 4WD site
We loved camping with loads of space around us. We booked the semi private 4wd site and we were 60 metres from our nearest neighbour on one side and 100 from the other. The kids enjoyed exploring in the creek that runs through the property and seeing the horses and cows at the front of the property. We are already talking about our return trip with the other half of the family (daughter and wife were sick). Was a beautiful escape and the staff were very friendly.

Communal Campsite
We enjoyed the 2 nights stay at the Communal sites. It was actually a huge property with plenty of camping spots at their Communal sites. You can absolutely have your privacy as each spots were quite distance, and the scenery was amazing with big field and the range of the mountains. Kids enjoyed the horse riding But pls remember to book upfront as they are always fully booked. Overall beautiful spots, plenty of toilets available on sites but shower are quite limited. If u camp deep inside, u probably have to drive up to the main entrance to take a shower. That's the only cons I would say. But other than that we enjoyed the entire stay. Would definitely come back.

Complete peace and quiet
Absolutely loved our weekend at Chapman valley. The private 4wd sites were the perfect way to enjoy some down time amongst fantastic views, without the worry of noisy neighbours. The facilities were exceptionally clean and all staff were extremely polite and a pleasure to deal with. This is by far our new number one camping destination and well most Certainly be returning again.

Great campground off Putty Road
Great communal campground; easy to get to and the location is so beautiful. Facilities were clean and close-at-hand, and we had the entire site to ourselves, which was very peaceful. Would recommend for a group large or small.

Our favourite place!
We keep coming back because it has everything we want in a campsite so close to Sydney. Private & spacious camps sites with no neighbours, a creek for the dogs to play in, massive property to explore & the bulk fire wood option is a must!

Such a great weekend!
We loved everything about it! The site is very large and away from anyone else. The grass was cut short so easy to set up the tent and for the toddler to walk and ride his bike. We were able to make a big fire for cooking. We explored a bit on foot around to say hello to the cows :)

Beautiful private camping.
Always love staying at Chapman Valley! The private site are private and we stayed at great little spot set down near the lake. This meant our dogs felt like they were in their own (extra large and exciting) yard. Beautiful views of the property and the bulk fire wood is a highly recommended add on! We couldn’t get through our pile even though we tried!!!
