We are located in the Dungog Shire, in the Hunter Region of NSW. This area is renowned for its forests, mountains and picturesque river villages. Horseshoe camp is a perfect location for couples or families to get away for a short or extended stay. The Barrington Tops National Park, State Forests, Chichester Dam, river systems as well as the historic and scenic character of the area provide for a stunning experience. There's plenty of sightseeing and exploring awaiting visitors to this area. The seclusion and privacy of Horseshoe camp allows for total relaxation in a beautiful rural setting  providing an escape from the hustle and bustle of work and city life. Horseshoe was originally a small dairy farm with a history going back to the 1800's. The land comprises  fertile river flats surrounded by the  Williams River,  rising to an elevated forest area affording views over the  countryside.                                                       There are several campsites to choose from including some  situated on the banks of the Williams River. Your choice and subject to weather conditions. Allowing only two sites to be occupied ensures privacy for our guests, Horseshoe camp is only 10 minutes drive, (7km) from Dungog township.

Great spot for a swim
Great private spot down by the river, 2 steps for a swim, plenty of shade as the weather was hot, good access so didn’t need a 4WD.

We had a beautiful private,shady,campsite by the river. Great views with sound of running water from the shallow river rapids and there’s also deeper swimming pools. It was a great place to stay & unwind. Highly recommend this camp site. The host Michael was very helpful & was great to chat with.

Family friendly escape.
Dungog Horseshoe Camp is a beautiful and secluded location on a swimmable section of the Williams River. It's a short drive or bike ride into town, making it a great option for those looking for a peaceful escape. The campground is great for families with children and pets, as it's dog-friendly and has limited campsites, resulting in fewer people. The host, Michael, was very welcoming and helpful which added to the great experience. Overall, it's an awesome escape for those looking to enjoy nature and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Peaceful riverside
We loved our trip to Horshoe camp at Dungog. It was so tranquil, clean and easy. Michael is a lovely host, he was very kind, thoughtful and helpful. Take your river shoes if you plan to swim, there’s rocks aplenty, and some are quite slippery. We will be back soon!

Peaceful, and has a river !!
Great place to stay. Recommend it. Michael was great and always willing to help. Will back there again. While you’re in Dungog, make sure you go to Meg’s Kitchen. Homemade food that was the best …. and I’m not even a foodie.

Stunning location on the river.
We loved our stay at Michael's property. Only a short drive from Dungog and located on the beautiful Williams River this was the perfect location for our summer holiday. Michael was a great host, showing us around the property before we settled on a shady grassy location on the river bank.

Absolutely loved our stay at Horseshoe Bend. Mike was a fantastic host and his property is incredible. We loved being able to set up right on the river and spent our days relaxing, cooking and swimming in the crystal clear water. Ours was a summer stay and our site had shady options all throughout the heat of the day and the deep part of the creek was in shade throughout the later parts of the afternoon and was perfect for cooling off. The river has shallow spots along the front of the camp sites, perfect to be able to watch the little ones swim and play safely, with deeper sections easily accessible. The river is rocky so I suggest taking a pair of swimming shoes, crocs or joggers that your happy to get wet to make exploring and navigating the banks comfortable. Our stay was so peaceful and we enjoyed the seclusion that this property offered. If your a bird watcher you will be delighted and the abundance of butterflies and dragonflies were a sight to behold. Hands down the best hip camp we have stayed at. You feel like your a world away from civilization, but just a short drive will give you access to anything you need. We will be back regularly. Also hot tip, while your in the area a visit to Megs Kitchen in town is a must! 🤤

Peaceful Riverside Camping
A really great campsite, with beautiful views. Michael our host was lovely, with clear directions on arrival & was happy to show us around Horseshoe Camp. Easy access to the river & with only two campsites, we had plenty of privacy. We loved our peaceful stay & can't wait to go back again soon.

A great camping spot. We couldn't camp next to the river because it was too wet, but Michael suggested another spot which was perfect, with lots of space, no one around and just a few minutes walk from the river. Dungog is a few minutes away with a tourist information centre, an IGA and five or six cafes to choose from. Barrington Tops NP is not far away, with plenty of things to do.
