Just up the road from its slightly flasher brother, but it still boasts amazing views. Camping here is in a flat paddock. The manager will cruise around to collect fees.

Great kids playground.

Very busy during Christmas period but great crowd of well-behaved campers. $28 for two people for non-powered sites is a fair price. Facilities are basic but well kept. Hot showers are free but limited to 4 minutes. All three camp grounds are nice camping spots next to the beach.

We stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. It is a tidy place at a spectacular beautiful location. Kerry and his wife make you feel very welcome they are amazing. We can only recommend that place!

3 small campgrounds all run by same owners. We stayed at beach camp with sparse facilities but were welcome to use better kitchen at other camp.
