Absolutely gorgeous spot - room for two car/trailer/caravan combos and one spot for single car or tent - all 3 quite shaded. Picnic table on the lake, view of Coffin Bay NP - so glad we found this! Just no toilets or water but still worth a visit if your self sufficient

Picnic table available and little area to camp, nice spot on the water! Just watch your dogs, we lost ours for 3 hours

Peaceful and quiet little campground at the edge of the water, perfect to relax. Good spot for paddling to have a look at the starfish colonies around. Facilities: picnic table with a great view.
