Cute little site with a nice walk in/out. Remote, with no water or power, and no fires allowed (so bring your stove system). There is a composting toilet (which was a bit gross), and the ground can be a bit boggy, but overall I would come back because it’s relatively quiet (only a dozen other campers when I went) and you have access to a lovely little beach.

great campsite! did the coastal walk midweek, so we dodged all the weekend traffic, which made our stay here lovely and peaceful. Toilets are well maintained, but bring your own water !

Awesome site. Very peaceful falling asleep to the waves. Drop toilets only and NO water on site. There are also no fires allowed. Quiet when I went, but I know it gets busy during weekends and public holidays.

I very much doubt this is true. This campsite is very, very popular and is still accepting bookings through the website. by Peter b.
