150 hectare, private campground with river-side campsites.
Ferndale Park is situated in the upper reaches of the picturesque Hunter Valley, nestled in the foothills of the Barrington Tops, just a short distance down from Chichester Dam.
You can choose your own camp site (powered or unpowered) anywhere in the 150 hectare property. There's plenty of area along the river where the main campsite is situated. Ferndale also has onsite caravans for hire as well as a 2 bedroom cottage.
There are toilets, showers and power. Well behaved dogs are permitted.
It's not a bad base for those that want services / facilities, but access to the Barrington region for day trips.
From $12.50 for camping. See http://www.ferndalepark.com.au/index.php/pricing for pricing info.
