Beautiful area, out of the way and not too many people around. The lakes are just stunning and the fauna are not afraid to say hello.

All in all it's a very well maintained area, the toilets are clean and the sites are "private" and spacious.

I would reccommend not going throughout the holidays because you'd be lucky to find a spot.

I agree with Bob Smith's comments. It is a quiet and peaceful spot for camping. Avoid summer holidays. We visited mid-week in Feb and it was empty so could be a good time to go. Nice swimming too, I believe.

Only a short drive from Seal Rocks too. Great swimming at Lighthouse Beach, No 1 Beach and Boat Beach.

Convenience stores are located at Bungwhal and Seal Rocks - about 10/15 mins in either direction.
