2 free camps and budget showground at Urbenville, New South Wales

Isn’t it wonderful when a small country town offers not one, but two FREE camp areas and a budget site?

Urbenville Forest Park is on the northern town boundary, bordered by Clarence Way and Tooloom Creek. This special area is south of Woodenbong and the Queensland border. It is surrounded by waterfalls, national parks and state forests.

Jenny Woodley shared photos in our Facebook group “I Love Camping Australia WIde”. Jenny said “nice little free camp just out of Urbenville in N.S.W. Toilets, firepits and an abundance of birdlife.”

The park is pet friendly with picnic tables, shade, mobile reception and views! Make sure you BYO drinking water. It is suitable for tents, camper trailers and RVs.

The Crown Hotel in Urbenville is also free for patrons and pet friendly. It is a 48 hour stop for self contained vehicles. Toilets and showers are available in opening hours.

Budget priced Urbenville Showground is also pet friendly and has a 48 hours limit. It is suitable for all vehicles, including Big Rigs, and tents are welcome. Powered sites, showers, toilets, non potable water and mobile coverage are available.

Crown Mountain looks over the town and volcanic plugs dominate the scenery. Swim under waterfalls or go bushwalking, fossicking, canoeing, birdwatching, four wheel driving and fishing. Visit:

  • Toolum Lookout
  • Beaury State Forest
  • Tooloom Falls
  • Yabbra State Forest
  • Bean Creek Falls
  • Climb ‘the Castle’ – volcanic plus Edinburgh Castle
  • Yabbra Flora Reserve
  • Toonumbar National Park

Check out the pioneer cottage – the town started in a gold rush! It is open the first and third Sunday of the month or by appointment. Now Urbenville relies on dairying, beef, timber and tourism.

Please email your photos of Urbenville and campgrounds to info@campsaustraliawide.com or share them on the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App.

This village is in the Tenterfield Shire, at the headwaters of one of Australia’s largest rivers, the Clarence. Find these sites in the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App, CAMPS 11 and new CAMPS Pendium box set.
