Millionth Acre Recreation Area

Millionth Acre Recreation Area is a free short term campsite located about 4km south of Hampton on the corner of Oberon Road and Jenolan Caves Road in the Lithgow Region of Central West New South Wales.

The area came into being in 1970, to celebrate the millionth acre of radiata pine to be planted in Australia. It’s a pleasant camping site that has toilets, picnic facilities and interpretative material, as well as a number of short walks radiating from the picnic area. 

Millionth Acre Recreation Area lies within the Hampton State Forest.

There is some mobile phone service here, but it will depend on your carrier.
Dogs are welcome at this campsite but please be responsible!

NSW State Forests Camping Information
State forests provide many established camping areas. Some contain space for a number of tents or caravans, fireplaces and toilet facilities. Many State forests have picnic sites with facilities such as tables and BBQs. Please use established fireplaces wherever possible.
Camping sites cannot be pre-booked or reserved.
Camping in State Forests is generally limited to a maximum of four weeks. Visitors should be aware of and adhere to any signage at camping sites which may define shorter periods of stay and must comply with all directions given by authorised officers during their stay.
In most areas, firewood is not provided, so you are advised to bring your own, or a gas BBQ. Be aware of fire regulations, especially Total Fire Bans and promptly report all bushfires to the emergency services by dialing triple zero (000).
Solid Fuel Fire Bans apply in many State forests over summer, banning campfires and barbecues using wood, charcoal or other solid fuel. Campers are asked to bring gas appliances and prepare for days when total fire bans are declared. When planning your trip, look at the current current closures and notices, or contact the local Forestry Corporation office for more information.

If you are planning on having a fire, check that there isn’t a total fire ban in the area you are visiting.
