One of the best campsite I have ever stayed. Tents only, no vehicle access (luckily). Quite, beautiful view and swim. Has tap water (boiled it) and a dunny. The locals are very friendly. Will come back one day!

Big area, but some might get flooded on high tide. Beautiful and indeed you have a high chance to be alone even in high season. Parking area very close. Table and toilet, also beach for mussels and swimming. Pay the 8$,well worth the money(Ranger and neighbors around) . Seems to be a not well known spot.



Very nice campsite. Only 4 place for tente.You are alone in the world !!
