No camping at Showground or Chapman Oval this summer

Kiama Showground Camping

Kiama Council will not provide overflow camping sites at The Kiama Showground and Chapman Oval this summer.

Council, through its Kiama Coast Holiday Parks, normally allows holidaymakers with campervans, caravans and tents to set up at these locations, to meet the heavy demand of the Christmas and New Year period.

This will not be possible in the 2022-23 summer season due to the continued poor state of the grounds following the extended wet weather this winter, and the forecast for further heavy rain over the holidays.

This decision is based on the significant cost of repairing our reserves, as well as the many safety risks to our guests and maintenance staff.

Kiama Council apologises for any inconvenience caused, and encourages those planning camping visits to our area to contact our Kiama Coast Holiday Parks and Destination Kiama teams for help with alternative locations.

Campers who regularly camp on these sites, and those on waiting lists, have been advised that the overflow camping will not operate for the upcoming summer season.
