A well-maintained forested campsite by a white sand beach in the national park. - at end of approximately 12km gravel road navigable by any car though slippery in rain - campers self-register at booth (cash only) between May and October (office uncrewed); at office other times during daytime or via phone/email via national parks website - toilets - showers (fee via token from national parks office; office is uncrewed in winter) - fires not permitted autumn-spring; in fireplaces other times subject to bushfire hazard warning - no shops in vicinity-some at Port Arthur 4km south of Fortescue Bay turnoff from Arthur Highway. The campsites become crowded during holiday times and may be full. The day use area has BBQ at the shelter. Water is available via bubbler and should be rolling-boiled 3 minutes to remove any contaminants. WALKS NEARBY Campsite is at the start of the walking track to Cape Huay and Bivouac and Canoe bays in the other direction. Both are day walks. - the Cape Huay track has hundreds of steps and is a Grade 3 walk-some bushwalking experience recommended; bring water, wet weather, warm clothing - Fortescue Bay is the end of the Three Capes walking track ($).

Great tent camping site which has very well maintained showers and toilets. Plenty of friendly wildlife so make sure that you put away any food before bed

Awesome location, down dirt road so could be tough in a 2wd in the rain. Was right at the base of Cape Hauy track so awesome to get an early start for the hike!
