We are operational again after the floods, but please note we are still in the midst of clean-up, with some remnant flood issues. NSW Ski Gardens is situated on the banks of the Hawkesbury River at Wisemans Ferry. Every October - April is our peak time and its busy! Please be aware there is river noise during our busy times on weekends so may not suit those looking for tranquillity on weekends. During the week it's fine but weekends are busy and a bit noisy. We are 1.2 km from the township along the River Road. There are powered and unpowered sites for caravans and campers set in a rustic location. Amenities include hot showers, laundry, on-site kiosk and boat ramp (fee applicable). BBQ and covered picnic area. Dogs are welcome on leash.

Great location for a group camp with easy access to excellent amenities, kiosk for snacks and essentials on site, and close to the river. Shade under trees and picnic tables much appreciated. Boat ramp facilities allow for easy access, best if you have powered watercraft.

Decent family spot
Good campsite for families and first time campers, however lots of rubbish and broken glass around our site - not sure if thats a legacy of the recent floods or due to inconsiderate campers/poor upkeep.

Beautiful riverside camp with dog
We loved our camping experience here! The river is beautiful and wide and the camp spots were quite generous in size. We got a wonderful secluded spot down the end and right on the river which was beautiful. Our doggo really enjoyed the bush and the water. Only thing was there isn't much beach or water access except for the boat ramp and the cicadas were so loud but that’s just a time of year thing. Will definitely camp here again!

Secluded site excellent facilities
Camping mid-week was great - there was only one other camper so it was really relaxing. There weren't too many bugs surprisingly and the facilities were excellent. Warm water available and showers and great toilets. Bit of a luxury camping experience and super quick to get to from Wisemans ferry (just 1km down the road). Great place to rejuvinate and bring along some first-time campers. Only minor thing was paying double after adjusting the dates (due to the first date being forecasted to rain) we rescheduled but were charged additionally, so it ended up being a bit costly (double the price). This might be the standard for Hipcamp host policy though - this was our first time using Hipcamp.

An Amazing Experience
Christine is wonderful, and made the trip so much more special than I thought possible. The genuine care and engagement with campers and their needs, as well as her kindness and consideration made this trip something so amazing for my family. Thank you so much!

For the most part, a lovely site! Christine was a great host and gave us some tips while we were there. I think a bit of clarification with potable vs bore water would have been helpful, but once we knew what was safe everything went smoothly. The fire pits are great for their purpose but a bit tricky to use for any potential cooking! (we roasted potatoes and had to put out the fire to retrieve them). Otherwise, lovely place to stay and heaps of space! :)

Host was amazing and friendly. Very accommodating. Location was very pretty. Wasn’t really suitable for swimming which is my bad. Not sure why I thought that was going to happen 🤣 and the “all dogs must be on a leash” rule wasn’t enforced. I was a bit worried about the dog in the campsite next to us as it looked a bit scary and was eyeing my kids off. There was also another huge dog roaming around unattended. People next to us were super loud with music all night. Aside from that it was fun!

The site is recovering really well from the epic flooding of the wholesale area. Facilities are clean. The food at their kiosk was really good! We camped in the nonpowered area with our 4 year old and 6 month old. It was the perfect space set back from the river which was safer for our very adventurous kiddo. The boat ramp and river edge isn’t fenced (completely understand why) but you do need to be vigilant if you have small children. We really enjoyed our stay, will definitely go back!

The view over the river is lovely. The amenities are dated but clean. Sadly the park was flooded so it does still need some cleaning. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

Go and visit - You won't regret it!
I loved my stay at the Ski Gardens. It was nestled in a perfect spot on the Hawkesbury River, only 10-15mins walk into the heart of Wiseman's Ferry. My camp area was on the water with no other campers in sight. My dog and I enjoyed swimming in the river, sitting by the fire and relaxing amongst the beautiful surroundings. We cooked on the fire & ate at the pub in town, but I most enjoyed the snacks at the on-site kiosk. Hearing about how recent floods have destroyed the local area, I was more than impressed with the state of the campgrounds and facilities. I recommend anyone looking for a true camping experience + all of the comforts of amenities, only 1-hour from Sydney. Thanks to Christine and her family for sharing their slice of heaven for the weekend. l'll be back soon!

Good location only 45 mins from Syd
While the site was a little rundown the staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was great for us being right on the river along with no one else staying on the site being midweek.

Relaxing River Campsite
Camping at NSW Ski Gardens was my partner’s first introduction to camping. We both had an amazing relaxing time. We went during the week and stayed two nights. Even though it was mid June the weather was lovely. Christine was chilled, approachable and helpful. As we were the first to arrive for the day we had our pick of the premium powered sites (which are the best as they have the best view of the river). The bathrooms and showers were clean, there were plenty of chairs and tables available at the premium sites and a small bbq. Even if you don’t need electricity, but you want a great view of the river, book the premium powered site. My partner and I loved every minute and we will be back again.
