Lovely peaceful camping spot run by Vicky and Frank. Clean and newly painted hot showers/flushing toilets. Make sure you take a wander up the road to check out the house names!

Small grassed section about 1 kilometer short of the beach, just as you come into Scotts Ferry. Toilets not great, gents didn't have hand-basin. Both toilets and showers are in concrete water tanks. Kitchen seemed fine. Nice and cheap ($5 for non powered site for the family), but permanent caravans etc seemed to fill half the site and were in a state of disrepair. Seemed to have a bunch of strange long stay residents, which made for slightly uncomfortable atmosphere.

Custodians very friendly. Difficult to access the beach as sometimes you have to ford through 50-100m stretch of water just beyond the carpark.
