Loved this campsite, it is right by the beach and facing west so as long as the night is clear you get a cracking sunset! Powered sites are by the kitchen area and unpowered is across the road on a grassy reserve, both equally as good!! Excellent price and a beautiful location! The beach is covered in old dead trees - watch your feet!!!! Paid through an honesty box in tge kitchen area

Nice spot, cheap as chips, pricing as of july 2019 $12 powered site plus $2 per person $6 unpowered plus $2 per person, fill in evenlope and put in box in wall provided, man comes and checks so please do it to keep this great spot running. $2 hot showers and free toilets, drinking water and a donation washing machine, simple but great spot for an overnite.

A lovely and inexpensive campground. There ia a toilet and shower for each of the two main genders, a kitchen sink, bench space and a washing machine. BBQ tables are scattered around. There are no cooking facilities except for a BBQ next to the playground about 100 meters away.

Nice small campsite, facilities adequate.
Behind the sand dunes, you have to take a 10 mins walk through an eerie river estuary full of dead tree logs to reach the sea. Dark grey sand, beautiful views. Recommended!

Cheap. Quiet. Didn’t use the showers but hot showers available for $2 extra. Unpowered sites on fairly large patch of surprisingly well kept grass. Nice play park and this bizzare beach which is worth a visit. For the price highly recommended.

Best value for money I’ve seen. Small campground for powered and separate camp area for non powered. Fantastic location by the beach, wild and natural, great walks along beach and around estuary with lots of bird life.
Campground had toilet, great hot shower just $2, kitchen area with hot and cold drinking water plus hot & cold dishwashing sink. All this for $6 per site and $2 per person. Great value.
I will be back. Highly recommended if you’re looking for natural environment camping.

Though a little hard to find, this campsite right next to the beach (behind the dunes) with clean facilities and a nice little „cellphone reception and nice view“ post on top of the dunes was really worth the money and a perfect place to stay. Benches with tables are provided for the unpowered sites!

We were unpowered but the powered sites were inside a little yard. Maybe 5-6 places and not too spacious...

Payment is made by putting an envelope into a postbox next to the lavatory. 6 for the unpowered site, 2 pp and 2 per hot shower.

Washing machine provided donation based.
