Kayak or Boat Acces only
Don't let the name of this place put you off. This campsite has no walking access and is one of the best kayak campsites in the park. Best if you time your arrival or departure with a mid to high tide to minimise a kayak drag along the sand. Toilet can get pretty smelly in peak season being the only downside to this really stunning spot.
