Free Camping / Low Cost Camping:

For campers looking to save on park fees or simply rough it, there are a few free locations where you can park your van or set up a tent. Ingar Campground, close to Wentworth Falls, is one such place. It has only toilets, tables, and barbecue pits, so you'll have to bring water, food, and everything else you need. Murphy's Glen is another free site inside the Blue Mountains National Park. Located near Woodford, it too provides only toilets and cooking areas.
