Kenilworth Rural Camping is a quiet, family friendly private camping area in the heart of Kenilworth, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. 

Adjacent to the Charles Street Mary River parklands, this 5 acre block has beautiful drive through, flat grassy sites. Shady or open spaces with a seasonal water hole on the property, 150mtrs from the Mary River, through the park or a 5 minute walk to town (600mtrs to the pub!).

We have 5 camping sites, each suitable to any size caravans, campers, tents etc. Each site has the capacity to fit 3 caravans or equivalent and up to 10 guests. Fire pits at all sites. 

 Please note we do not have amenities or drinking water and that you need to be self-sufficient with your own toilet/shower set up and bring everything you need with you and take out ALL waste. 

Dogs must be on a leash at ALL times, as there is an old pet cow called Daisy on site living out her days. Please also clean up after dogs.

Group bookings welcome!

*All guests must be added to the booking request. Children under 12 are free but please ensure you include them in a message with the booking request.

*The Mary River, and the water hole water levels are determined on rain fall.*

Beautiful quiet spot! Kind host, friendly cow and nice and close to town. Sites are super spaced out and the field is kept nice and clear. We took a nice walk by the river and into town to get donuts and a pie. Thanks for having us Shaun! Bye Daisy!

A very basic but beautiful spot to camp for a night out two! 🏕 Make sure you find the river! :)

Had a great time. Stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute. You are very close to town, but it feels like you are miles away. The nearby river was clear and refreshing. We will be back.

Great spot to camp! The kids loved their time there with Daisy... Nice short walk to the river for a nice fresh water swim. Definitely booking another camping trip here soon.

Such a beautiful spot. We stopped over for a night and stayed in site 5, which was very private and had heaps of room to yourself. This camp ground has 5 sites available, so each site is massive and not over crowded, which is perfect. Definitely coming back. If you have kids, bring floaties for the river.

Beautiful spot alongside the Mary River. The camping ground is spacious, the individual sites are large and wide apart. The ground is well maintained. Only minutes away from town if you need anything. Shane met us at the gate and kept in contact through out our stay. Perfect spot, will return.

Great mix of town and country, very peaceful lots of shade, great swimming in Mary River. Huge fire ring. So much better than being crammed in a caravan park. Loved it and will be back
