Located at the most picturesque rapids on the Barrington River, relive the best of your childhood camping memories!
The Steps Barrington is a camping destination of spectacular natural beauty on a gentle bend of the Barrington River at The Steps rapids.
Relive the best of your childhood camping experiences with an uncrowded campground, unspoilt river vistas and friendly wildlife.
On the river you'll find stretches of slow moving water that make perfect swimming holes for family fun or try paddling the rapids in a kayak, canoe or surf mat. On land take to the trails of our purpose-built cross country mountain bike park, there are trails suitable for all rider levels or a family riding challenge.
Nearby you’ll find Copeland Tops and Barrington Tops with rainforest walks, lookouts and waterfalls. Or you can just sit back and listen to the sounds of the Barrington River cascading its way over the famous Steps rapids while you watch the wallabies graze.
Our large grassy campzones are suitable for small groups and you’ll love our ‘luxe’ amenities block with hot showers and flushing toilets.
Please note: The Steps Barrington Campground is located at Bindera but you need to check-in first at the office of Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre (126 ThunderboltsWay, Gloucester) before proceeding to the campground.
The Steps Barrington Campground is an authentic camping experience with year round appeal. The bushland setting of this boutique campground is easily accessed by two wheel drive vehicles and the numbers of campers allowed onsite is limited to ensure you have plenty of space and the natural environment is not stressed either. It's just a short drive from the town centre of Gloucester in the Barrington Coast hinterland.
There are several large bonfire pits plus two permanent shelters that can be hired. It’s the perfect place to book out for a corporate event or family occasion, the riverside setting will wash away your stress and revitalize your spirit.
There are no powered sites.
Please note, no domestic pets allowed due to proximity of wildlife.

The view of the river was amazing and hearing this at night was lovely. The upstairs main bedroom was great and the bathroom updated and clean. The second bedroom upstairs needs a flyscreen. And the detached bedroom downstairs needs some updating. The shower was very basic and I had a little rodent visit me every day. With a few simple improvements it would be even better.

Stayed in the Riverview cottage which is very well set up for a family to stay in . Beautiful location overlooking the river. Excellent swimming in the river and nice mountain bike track on the campsite. Barrington Tops has amazing walks.

Lovely Area ,Amenities kept nice and clean, Avoiding peak times and weekends even better. Thought some camp zones were allowed too many people with cars and caravans to maintain a decent distance.

This is an amazing campground. Remote yet only 30 mins away from Gloucester for supplies. The campgrounds are well maintained, clean and mostly flat. The amenities are great with hot water available any time during the day and night. The only issue that I can criticise about the amenities are the lights. They only stay on for a very short period of time. If you don't bring any form of light whilst using during the night, you will find that you will be sitting in the dark halfway through using the facilities. The surrounding is relaxing, you can easily spend a day just swimming, paddling or fishing in the river or just reading a book or chilling out by the riverside. Would definitely be back here again.
