Coxs River Campsite on the Six Foot Track

The Coxs River Campsite is one of four campgrounds along the Six Foot Track, a 44km multi-day bushwalk in the Blue Mountains, NSW. The campground is grassy and pleasant, while the Coxs River is great spot to go for a swim after the hike in. 

If walking from Katoomba on the Six Foot Track and taking 3 days (the most popular itinerary), you'd spend your first night at Coxs River Campsite and your second at Black Range Campsite.
