Located at Bilpin, this beautiful campsite is nestled at the foot of the majestic Blue Mountains and backs onto Wollemi National Park. This magical 16 acres is abundant with wildlife and where you camp is the mouth to the beginning of some great hiking tracks in the National Park! There are a few great campsites to choose from- one at the top of the property (good for families/large groups up to approx 20) with good flat ground and surrounded by a lush forest. It's close to the road so it is easy access in and out, another two at the back with water views and one in the forest (If you have 4wd and portable loo we can give you an exclusive spot in the bottom of the golden gorge). Enjoy the sounds of the bubbling stream and see the sunset at the waterhole. Sit back and relax around the campfire whilst toasting a marshmallow or some damper. This campsite offers a unique heptagonal toilet (no shower yet but its on the way). Please ensure you're fully self sufficient with all other supplies (including water). From here you can explore the amazing Blue Mountain views, marvel at a magical glow worm dell, check out the 2 apple cider breweries and taste some of the region's delicious produce. Colo River is 30 mins away, a clear waterhole is 10 min drive ( 4wd only- hosts can transport if available), the mouth of a hiking trail to the National Park is on the property, the main township of Bilpin is close by with the baker, fruit and vege picking, Mountain Bells Cafe (host recommendation), apple pies galore and the restaurant , the markets are on Saturday morning 10-12 noon at the local hall and there is a free meditation group 9am Sunday at the monastery. With so much to do you will need more than one night or plan a return visit to the amazing Mountain Lagoon Hideaway at Bilpin! We can also offer massage and reiki treatments on site as a 'nature immersion' experience or if you prefer it can be in the privacy of a massage studio (10 mins away), guided nature and wildlife walks/sunset walks or longer hikes, professional ecology tours, fire twirling lessons or performance and African drumming lessons, games for the kids, local produce hampers, eggs and BBQS (with notice and if hosts are available). Please discuss with your hosts for further details and availability :) PLEASE ensure you read rules and safety as well as directions, because GPS will take you to the wrong property. The land is a nature retreat and developing animal rescue sanctuary so we love to share the space with respectful nature loving people :) Our motto is leave no trace. We look forward to welcoming you to our unique and magical slice of paradise!

Quiet, private and relaxing!
We really enjoyed Mountain Lagoon Hideaway. We stayed in our camper trailer at Kangaroo Camp which was narrow (multiple tents or trailers would have to be in a row), but had a lovely outlook on to the bush. There were other larger campsites that are better suited if you are in a group. The composting toilet was in a delightfully unique building, and was very clean with no smell. The water, soap, dry shampoo and hand lotion was a lovely touch, better than some AirBnB's we've visited! There are a number of dams where my kids had a great time trying to spot frogs and skipping stones. The camp was quiet and private. Adam came to say hello when we first arrived, which was lovely. After that, it was just us, the frogs, and the birds. Just what we needed! We did explore the property a bit, and then jumped in the car to go up the road a bit for a longer bushwalk. I'd recommend Mountain Lagoon Hideaway if you are looking for a quiet spot and you are keen to hang around camp amd just enjoy the peace.

Great secluded campsite
Lovely secluded area of the mountains, seemed particularly sheltered from the winds when we were there. Easy camping, with cute toilet facilities. Tip: camping is essentially on compacted ground, so bring heavy duty pegs and a mallet if you need to peg your tent well.

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this property. Super close to Sydney but far enough away. Spacious campsites, peace and quiet and the best toilet facilities we have seen. What more could you ask for. Great communication with Dannii. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

Lovely group family camp site.
Lovely property, very beautiful camp sites. We travelled with 4 families and stayed on the largest site. We had plenty of room for our group and the children felt like it was their very own. Also was a great site for a variety of camp options as we had a mix of trailers, vans and tents. Other sites were far away so it was great to feel we had private space.

Lovely, peaceful site. Just off a dirt road, but very quiet. Clearly marked firepits & wood available to buy at checkout. The mulch toilet was a revelation - works a charm. We loved camping here.

Immersed in nature
Danni and Adam's bush property was everything you could want from a trip away from the city. Peaceful, private and and deeply immersed in nature. We enjoyed beautiful walks on the property and nearby national park, sitting by the fire and having a chat with Danni and Adam. Would highly highly recommend and we are super keen to come back!

The location is easy to find and the site is well kept, dry and very shady (which would have been perfect for a summer trip). Adam brought us a lot of firewood as well as kindling to help keep us warm during the cold May nights and he shared some local tips with us. We brought our own toilet, but the camp toilet on site was in great nick. The other camp sites are well spread out so there is no noise from other campers at all. We enjoyed local activities such as the Saturday market in Bilpin, fruit picking and hot cider tasting. Note that the campsite is close to an unsealed road, which is moderately busy, even at night. Aside from that, frogs and birds kept us company :)

Great set-up with plenty of space so you're well away from the other sites and good pit toilet, firepits and dams for a refreshing dip! Thanks for having us Dannii!

Lovely spot in the Blue Mountains
We really enjoyed camping on Dannii's land. It is a lovely peaceful spot in a beautiful part of the world. Our campsite was quite near to the road but it is not a busy road and this did not bother us. Dannii and Adam are fantastic hosts, great communication and helpful when help required but not in your face. Best and cleanest composting toilet we have experienced. Highly recommended and we will likely return.

Beautiful property and amazing campsites. Amenities were so good for camping! Loved the nature sounds and would def need to spend at least 3 days there to soak it all in. Loved it, Dannii and Adam should be super proud. I’ll book for longer next time

My Daughters and I had a great time at this bush campsite. We had the whole site to ourselves. We mainly hung out at the campsite enjoying the campfire and small walks around the site. The firewood was good value, $30 for a good pile that could have lasted two days. Dannii was very helpful and easy to deal with.

Pretty nice place - spent 2 nights there. Toilet works and plenty of space between sites. Is a real bush site - so not much grass. Campsites are basically a dirt road which is fine, but worth knowing

We had a great time on Dannii's land. We camped at the orange possum site, which made us feel like VIP campers having our own entrance and exit out of the campsite. The location of this place is perfect for anyone who wants to set up camp and explore the surrounding area of Bilpin. The nightly musical concert of the wildlife around the dam area is a treat. Camp toilet was 5 stars quality, and a nice sink with clean water to washup was a bonus. It was also a pleasure to meet Dannii who made us feel very welcome.

Really enjoyed our short stay at Mountain Lagoon hideaway - Danii and Adam were very welcoming guests. It’s a great location to explore the surrounding area from including Kurrajong, Bilpin and the Colo River area. A quick dip after a hot day in the dam was a winner too!!

Dannii and Ad are great hosts! They have a beautiful natural property with well spread out sites. Our favourite thing were the animal sounds coming from the lagoons at sundown.

Chill Camp Vibes
I love the rawness of the untouched land and I love how Dannii and Adam have created one of the most environmentally friendly drop toilets I've seen. Their welcome plate and pleasant energy made you feel at home. The afternoon bush walk to the waterfall and sunset rock was enjoyable and meditative. The dam side bullfrogs at night were an orchestra to be heard.

Peaceful blue mountains experience
My partner and I had the ideal experience camping with Dannii and Adam very accommodating. Nothing we would change apart from more time there. Great friendly host, location is simply awesome with large camping spots spaced out with plenty of privacy. Bird life, frog life and plant life breathtaking. With bushwalking of the property onto a orchid filled, gums and ferns bushland. Not a far drive from essential services. National park all around provides many day walks, exploring wildflowers and the beautiful blue mountain views, you can even go for a swim in the colo river. Very lovely and peaceful.

It’s a lovely peaceful spot with a calming bush setting. Hardly any mozzies as the dam is teeming with frogs and pond life! Lovely flat spot in the Kangaroo site for our tent and the composting toilet is excellent.

Amazing place to get away not too far from Sydney. Amazing to fall asleep at night listening to an orchestra of frogs in the dam. Would definitely recommend this place as a place to unwind and relax. Dannii and was an excellent host.
