Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
Whynot is a bush block at Nerriga, only 10 minutes from the Nerriga Pub and Oallen Ford.  There are no facilities so you'll need to be self sufficient and you'll need to have your own camping toilet, and leave no trace. This corner of the world features fantastic mountain air, undulating hills and pockets of forest. Nerriga is a small locality and there is a pub serving meals, which is popular with day tourists. For outdoor adventure lovers, there is Morton National Park which is great for a daytrip or excursion. Visit Fitzroy Falls for scenic waterfall views, go mountain biking, walking or enjoy a picnic lunch. Bees Nest and Jerralong Nature Reserves are both located on the Shoalhaven River approximately 10 km north west of Nerriga. Not far from Nerriga is the township of Braidwood which features fantastic old architecture and funky shops, galleries, weekend markets and cafes.  Campfires are permitted and there is plenty of firewood available.  No pets please.Whynot is a bush block at Nerriga, only 10 minutes from the Nerriga Pub and Oallen Ford.  There are no facilities so you'll need to be self sufficient and you'll need to have your own camping toilet, and leave no trace.

Proper bush camp!
Ranay was very accommodating and helpful during our stay. She made sure we knew where to go and gave us some suggestions of the best spots on her property. This land is huge and there are many areas you an pick from to set up camp. Pretty much anywhere that is flat once you pass through the second gate that has an arrow saying "HIPCAMP" you can set up camp. We saw some kangaroos while we walked around and explored her property. Too bad I wasn't able to get a photo... We ended up being the only people here and it was very quiet and private. I would recommend Whynot to anyone in the area looking for a proper bush camp. There is so much to explore on this property.

Fantastic bush block to let the kids run wild. My son had a fantastic time riding his bike around and only a short drive down the road to the Shoalhaven River for a swim. We will definitely be coming back again.

Must try camp
If you want a camping spot that is secluded, this is it. It's like having your own little spot of land and there is so much to explore. In other hipcamp spots, you end up directly in someone's back yard but here was totally different, complete freedom.

Private bush block, close to road
We spent one night at Whynot2. Pros: Natural bushland block, with mowed vehicle trails, plenty of nice spots to set up camp, and abundant firewood. Total privacy is guaranteed. Cons: We weren't aware this site is next to a busy road linking Canberra/Goulburn and Jervis Bay. Regrettably traffic noise was a major issue on the Anzac long weekend. The block isn't big enough to get away from it, at most you would be about 200-300 metres away. On the night we stayed the neighbours also had a party which meant loud music and singing long into the night. As a result of these factors, we had to cut our stay short and find peace and quiet elsewhere. We recognise these issues are totally out of the host's control, but we wish we'd known more about the location before booking. In summary, a lovely bush spot for an overnight stay if you're just passing through. Host was super friendly with great communication.
