My husband and I have owned this beautiful property, nestled into the Colo Valley, for over 20 years. We have cleared grassy paddocks, some shady areas, and private access to the Colo River, one of the most pristine rivers in NSW. Our river access is normally shallow, well suited to young families or those who just want to lay back and enjoy a quiet refreshing dip with a beverage or two. Amazing sunrises, sunsets, and star gazing are provided free of charge along with bird watching, local wildlife, and horses in surrounding paddocks. We offer limited sites to comply with NSW Camping legislation and Hipcamp guidelines and to enable campers to experience the Colo as it should be, listening to the beautiful wildlife and really appreciating the outdoors. Pricing is $40 per site which includes one person. Up to 11 Extra people can be accommodated on each site at $30 per adult and $20 per child. If you'd like to book the whole property you are more than welcome. Contact the host for any questions. Pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis, please check with Hosts prior to booking, as conditions and a charge applies. There is no mobile reception or internet access, therefore, providing a true off-grid retreat. Self-sufficient campers are preferred. There are fire drums available for use or you're welcome to bring your own subject to RFS bush fire danger ratings on the day. There are three communal flushing toilets and one awesome hot water shower! ALL waste is to leave with you! There are local bush walks through National Parks and great places for mountain bike riding although be mindful of holiday traffic in peak times on our local dirt roads. We have a local guide that may be available to take you on guided walks so you can truly experience the valley at its best without the worry of knowing where to go. Get in touch with the host to arrange a walk. The local shop, Colo Riverside is open 4 days a week just 10kms up the road providing last-minute supplies, ice, bottle shop, and cafe services. Please note: Due to our location bookings may be canceled at short notice in times of bad weather due to flooding, limited access, fire or flood warnings. We trust you will understand we are only looking out for your safety and of course, Hipcamp credits will be arranged.

Highly recommended
Yara was so friendly and helpful. The toilet and hot shower were very clean with soap and shampoo. The river was beautiful and shallow, great for our small kids. Beautiful grass field with a soccer goal, great for our boys. Amazing to stay outside without any mosquitoes!

De View. De Best.
This was my first solo camping trip… Ever. Yara was awesome and so helpful. Her camping grounds were just perfect. The amenities were amazing. Pretty plush actually for camping. Very city people friendly lol The river was beautiful and the surroundings were picturesque. I didn’t want to leave. Woke up to natures song. Can not recommend De View more highly. This was the absolute perfect place for me to start my camping journey. Now I’m hooked. Thankyou so much Yara 🙏🏾 Xox

Excellent camping spot!
Beautiful spot! The river is crystal clear and shallow enough to swim safely but deep enough to kayak etc. We loved the large sites which made it perfect for a group of teen boys to camp away from their dads, but close enough to supervise. Fresh eggs and firewood from owner, Yara, were a big plus. Toilets were clean and shower excellent. We’ll definitely be back!

Relaxing river
The river was lovely and clean. The campsites were clean and spread out and it was great to have the toilet block. The Host Yarra was very helpful, we hired kayaks and she drove us 5km upstream and we paddled back to the camp. On the day we left our car battery was flat, Yarra’s partner Greg was super helpful and got us started again. Thank you both for having us for a great weekend.

Family friendly relaxing spot
Lovely spot! We visited with our 20mth old and 4.5yr old. River was great as shallow sections they can splash and also deeper parts we could wade in. We had a nice shady spot under the trees and close to river. Nice warm shower and very clean amenities block. We highly recommend this place and would definitely go back with friends and family. Yara is a very friendly host and accommodating of our needs and change of plans at short notice.

Just do it!
amazing place to stay which has everything you need for a fun and relaxing camping experience. A nice open place next to the river, clean toilets, hot shower, and a pit to make a fire. about an hour and a half drive from the middle of Sydney, so great if you're just out for a weekend getaway. kayaking available to go up and down the river. dog friendly - my dogs loved the nice open space to run around. The water was a bit shallow when I was there, great for kids, dogs or just for someone who just wants to get their feet wet. but if you go further down the river with the kayak, you can do some fishing. the water was fresh and crystal clear. amazing being there to just lie in the water to relax, listen to the water flow and take in nature. what more do you need?

Wide open spaces
Yara was a fantasic host. She checked in top make sure we were good and that we had everything we needed. She even dropped firewood and fresh farm eggs (yum) at our site. There was lots of space between the handfull of sites. This allowed our boys to run wild and live their best life! The river was clean, crisp and flowing. Limited mobile reception, which was perfect for the escape from the daily grind. A great experience, we'll be back.

Overall the experience was good however there was significantly less shade than anticipated. Toilets and shower were in good condition, the river was lovely and the host was very helpful. Some sites do have plenty of shade but not all. I recommend asking ahead of time for a shady site.

Amazing!
I’m normally not a camping person but the land was amazing! Quite spacious and not close to other fellow campers. The river was amazing to hop into on a hot summers day to cool off and bask in. Yara was quite welcoming and accomodating, always popping in the ensure utilities were always stocked. Would definitely go back. Thank you Yara!

Amazing stay! Yara went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. Huge amounts of space at each site. We had a paddock site which had less shade but also a really nice breeze throughout each day. The short walk down to the clear river made it super special and perfect for kids. The amenities were always clean with a great warm shower. Will definitely be back!

We had such a great weekend at De View. After changing our arrival time several times. Yara greeted us and told us where to find everything and dropped off the large bag of wood that we prepurchased. We asked for a place in the sun for our Solar panels and were positioned in a large paddock which was in the sun but had some small shade from trees if we needed it. The location was perfect for us, we were still only a few minutes to the toilets and the river but away from other campers and had a lovely view of the fields. The river was lovely. Clear, cool and just deep enough that we could spend the day on our SUP's floating down and then paddling back up. We would definitely recommend this place and will surely be visiting again. Thanks Yara!

Feel Refreshed!
Beautiful location, clean and well maintained toilets and hot shower! :) had a great time with our extended family and two small fur babies over Christmas. Our kids loved the pristine clear water of the river, so peaceful. We saw a few wedge tail eagles and bush turkey. Yara is amazing , thank you for your help during our stay and especially when our car broke down as we were checking out. We'll be back!

I would Highly recommend DeView. Host was most amazing, facilities better than I expected, directions easy to follow. Scenery exceptional, river access was great. Wood and kayaks for an added fee to improve on what is already there. Such an amazing time away. Will be heading back.

Thank you Yara, what a wonderful location. We loved spending the night in our camper trailer at DeView! We wished we could stay longer. Our site was spacious, flat, quiet and close to the amenities. The toilets were super clean, and having a hot shower after playing down in the river was fantastic! The kids loved the horse, rope swing and fresh eggs for breakfast. We will be back, thanks again.

We enjoyed a relaxing few days at DeView. Yara and Greg were great hosts and even dropped us up the road for a 2.5km paddle down the Colo River. Great little spot to unplug out of Sydney.

Camping by a river.
I honestly love camping here. The grounds are well kept and the shower and toilet are always clean. The river is at its best at low tide and great for kids to run around in, as it’s only a foot or two deep. The host Yara is warm and friendly. I really didn’t want to write a great review as I want this place for myself! Lol!

Great weekend away with the doggo
Fantastic property with direct access to the clean and refreshing river to swim in. We loved our stay with our doggo and the clean amenities were an added bonus. Our site offered plenty of space and privacy, surrounded by beautiful mountains and horses. We will definitely be back for another weekend away. Yara the host was very accommodating. Thanks again.

Great spot on the Upper Colo River
Great campsite for a swim/float in the Colo River, good spot for kids in the river as not too deep, remember to bring floaties! Has great toilet (2) and shower (1) facilities , they were well kept but we were not there on a public holiday weekend. Dog friendly as well.
