Hazel - Great campsite | 2010-03-29 02:05:22
This campsite is great value, with good pitches and facilities (including free hot showers!). Everything was in good condition. There is nature all around, the Bell Miner's 'ringing' is beautiful around the campsite and we saw lots of other birds and animals too. It is a nice easy walk along to Bournda lagoon and the site is well located for exploring other places like Tathra and Mimosa Rocks.
The only thing about this campsite (and also Im told Gillards beach) is that they can be a target for local yobs to drive round to drunk at 2am - it was a frightening experience for us to have to call the police from our tent as a gang pulled up nearby and started yelling and playing loud music to scare the campers. It is an isolated site and there weren't many others around, so be aware this goes on and make a judgement about your personal safety in the event that this may happen. They didn't do anything apart from make noise in the end, but they did mention stealing things and we were very vulnerable if they had decided to target our tent.
Also, it is advisable to book a pitch in advance, if only to know which pitch is yours, we saw people having to move as others arrived who had pre-booked!
