Open grass campsite right on the beach with beautiful scenery. We were lucky with the weather but I'd say its not very sheltered for windy night's. Clean public toilet block, no showers. Next to public playground, BBQs and carpark. Dog friendly!  $12.50 per adult & $7.50 per child, per night. Would definitely recommend :)

Great camping spot, can get pretty crowded though. Good squid spot. Lots of kayaking. Wind can pick up in an instant. Operating under COVID restrictions with a current limit of 300. Bookings required in advance and prices have increased. $12.50 per adult per night normal, extra on long weekends. $7.50 per child per night. Groups also attract a $10 bond per person, refundable on departure.

Great, simple campground. Large grassy area at the foot of the beach. $12.50 per adult per night (bring cash). Outdoor showers only with basic public toilets. No shops in town, Normanville is one of the closest towns for re-supply. Worth checking out the cave and surrounding headlands. If you’re into snorkelling / scuba diving check out the old pier too.
