Camp Bay Camping Ground


Boat / walking track access only

The Camp Bay Camping Ground is one of the campsites along the Queen Charlotte Track. It is in a sheltered bay with the luxury of a lodge (and a bar!) with a small shop and restaurant nearby. What a treat, especially is you have been walking or mountain biking along the track.

Water is drinkable without treating.
