Great spot
Rick was incredibly welcoming and the communication was great. Was quiet when we were there but there is plenty of space and it’s lovely and peaceful. Definitely head to Tenterfield and grab a coffee and donut from Manners & co! Only thing I would say is it’s a little pricey but overall would recommend 😊

We loved our stay at Bald Rock Station. Such a beautiful and spacious area and so close to the national parks and town! Would 100% stay again. Thank you to Rick for keeping the fire going on the rainy night when we arrived and for being so accommodating.

Beautiful landscape
Great place to camp. Hosts were lovely and welcoming. My kelpie loved being able to run around and go for a dip in the dam. Private and beautiful landscape. Would highly recommend.

Didn’t stay - other site options
When we arrived the main camp area had a lot of other dwellings nearby. We had another option so decided to stay elsewhere. Jodie did mention that we should have contacted her when we arrived as there were more site options but as that wasn’t made clear with the directions or booking we didn’t realize that was an option.

Cosy by the Fire.
This campsite was super unique with old trains scattered around the property. The hosts Jodie and Rick were incredibly helpful, kind and were super accomodating. Even though it was raining there was plenty to explore. On the property there is a lot of nature to explore including wild flowers, eucalypts and many incredible boulders. My friend and I cosiest in by the fire at night and then explored the nearby Famous Thunderbolt's hideout the next morning. It is close to a really cute town with several great coffee and breakfast options including a gypsy-type cafe. I would recommend getting a donut from Bad Manners (coffee also great). The National Park is not too far away for plenty of walks. Highly recommend staying at the original, this is my second time here and I will be back.

Great stay
Great stay, Rik went above and beyond to welcome us open the dark. Note, when driving on the road you may not have mobile reception. Also their driveway was in very bad condition due to all the recent rains. Rik was amazing, came out to greet us when we arrived in the dark (and it was a little wet!) He suggested an area to set up camp and it was a good spot, nice and flat. He also recommended an amazing place for coffee in town, and it was above and beyond expectations.

Loved the natural surrounds.
A lovely spot to camp. Lovely wild flowers, boulders and a bush walk near by to explore. Great that is has a toilet, a welcome reprieve from other camp sites on my journey without those facilities. I loved the trains! The owners were incredibly helpful and lovely to interact with. Very glad I was near the thunderbolt bushwalk.

Really cool spot - you feel really off-grid here among the trees and boulders. Good spot if you want to explore the nearby national parks or area. Reasonable amount of space to set up camp so you are able to get privacy from other campers. Really basic but well maintained facilities, basically has everything you need. The owners Rick and Jodie are very friendly and helpful also, we went at Easter and they came around to check that everyone (including us not-children) had had a visit from the Easter bunny :)

Such a fantastic spot to camp. Peaceful with plenty of room, what more could you ask for. Nick and Jodie went above and beyond to make sure everyone got into camp and made an effort to talk to everyone throughout the afternoon. Looking forward to coming back

Beautiful bush camp
A beautiful bush camp surrounded by massive granite boulders. Jodie and Rick were very welcoming and provided excellent instructions to find the camp and answered my online questions about road conditions following the heavy rains. Our camp was very quiet except for the wonderful frog chorus. I hope to return for a longer visit.

Overall we had a great experience however all campers were located close to each other and beside the train accommodation - the experience was not as private as we expected. Further, the cost ($42 for two adults and a small child) was more expensive than a powered site with rubbish bins and dump points which we felt was not good value.

Lovely stay
We had a great stay here. Such an awesome landscape. Great proximity to Tenterfield (lovely town) & National Parks (awesome!). Park campgrounds were full but we had this place to ourselves which worked out well for us! Quirky property with trains on site you can also stay in, plus you can go explore its own Balancing Rocks! The only downside which is more due to Hipcamp (not the property’s fault) is that the original quoted price jumped up a LOT when I went to proceed with booking. Was happy with original quote but checkout price felt expensive.

Magical piece of heaven!
This place is magic! Jodie and Rik truly have a beautiful place to call home. We had a fabulous time staying there with our two little girls. One whom was really unwell and Jodie and Rik went above and beyond to help us deal with it all. There is so much to explore, lots of wildlife and for an off grid property, the amenities are more than enough. We will absolutely be back!

Relaxing, great location
Ric and Jodie’s spot was awesome. Close to great walks and town for a great German feed at Rosenhof in Tenterfield. Ric is a great bloke, provided great facilities and awesome discussion. Coco (the dog) was a welcome addition as well- she was awesome! Thanks Ric!

Best camping location!
Bald Rock station, what a location! Stunning scenery and wildlife, functional kitchen and even a toilet. We loved that our camp site even had a fire pit. Jodie and her husband are very friendly and accomodating to a very late/last minute booking. Would highly recommend this camp site, we had a ball! Can’t wait to come back!

A hidden gem!
A peaceful and quiet campground. The drop toilet and camp kitchen were maintained. The hosts were frequently on the premises and attentive to serving the guests. The property is well located for local National Park attractions and Tenterfield. We wish we could've stayed longer!

Camped by the dam
Lovely hosts, who accommodated us last minute. Even mowed a patch of grass for us to camp on by the dam. Thanks for having us.
