Camping at Forbes State Forest
Most areas in the Forbes State Forest are open to primitive backpack camping, with the exception of a few areas. Primitive backpack campers are those who camp at undeveloped sites.
Those looking for a more developed site can camp at one of the six designated motorized campsites. These sites are set up so a camper’s vehicle is close by the camp site.
The Forbes State Forest Camping Brochure (PDF) has more information on the campsites available and the information needed to request a permit.
