Winter camping

Sydney Inlet Park is accessible year-round. There is no winter backcountry camping fee.


While small fires are allowed, we encourage visitors to conserve the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using stoves instead. If you do have a fire use small pieces of wood that will burn completely. Build your fires below the high tide mark. Never leave your fire unattended and practice “Leave No Trace” camping ethics.
