Nice location, long peninsula, water on both sides of the campground, great facilities and shelter, 'real toilets', some people were collecting seafood for dinner.

Large campsite with great facilities, surrounded on most sides by water at a high tide as the beach is out front and the Bark Bay lagoon out the back. Can get busy with larger groups at times. Nice sunny spot in winter.

Often less popular for kayakers than other nearby campsites, but it has excellent facilities and if you're a fan of the flush toilet then you're well catered for here.
