Rear camping area opening and closing times

Bendeela Recreation Area is managed as two separate areas, depending on the number of vehicles and visitors.

  • The front camping area is open 24 hours a day, year-round, for vehicle-based camping.
  • The rear camping area is closed to vehicle access, by a locked gate, during non-peak periods.

Visitors may walk in and picnic and camp in the rear camping area at all times. The rear camping area is routinely opened to vehicles during peak periods (see opening and closing times below).
