Each campsite has its own small fireplace. No fires to be lit anywhere but these fireplaces. All fires must be supervised by an adult. All fires subject to fire restrictions at the time. We also reserve the right to limit fires depending upon other conditions.

Firewood is available for purchase. It comes in 20kg bags. We also sell and recommend firestarters to help your fire get going. Proceeds from the sale of firewood goes towards the planting of native plants in the park.

There is a small shelter and tables at the bottom of the campground which has a $1 coin operated electric barbecue and a sink with hot water for washing dishes.

Apart from that, you will need to bring your own cooking and cooling equipment.

Does each site have fresh water?

As we are on tank water only, it is not possible to hook up water to your site or caravan. We do have a fresh water tap in a central location of the campground plus others near the amenities block. There are also a couple of bore water taps which are for cleaning purposes only.

It is a campground, but do you accept caravans?

We do have a couple of sites suitable for small caravans in the bushland camping ground. Maximum size of 18’. We also have other caravan sites closer to the amenities block but not in the bushland camping area. Maximum van size is 22’ and maximum motor-home length is 10 metres.  If in doubt, please check prior to booking.

Do you have a dump point for caravan toilets?

No. We are on a septic systems. There is no dump point available.  The nearest Dump Point is a Corrigan’s Beach (Batemans Bay)

Are the campsites grassed?

No.  However, we spread a soft playground-quality mulch over the sites for your comfort.  The feedback we have received on this practice has been excellent.

Can we rent tents?

Though we don’t have a tent hire, we do have a campsite set up with tent, chairs, table, stretcher beds during the non-peak periods. We call this the Canvas Castle and it is available for rental. If you have more than two campers, you may like our larger  Canvas Kingdom.

Can we use generators?

No. We do have powered sites. If they are booked out, you are not permitted to run a generator to get your own power

No caravan/motorhome air-conditioners after 7pm – others are entitled to sleep in quiet surrounds.

Is the campground crowded?

You can expect the campground to be fully booked at peak periods and school holidays. Otherwise, there is normally plenty of room.

Do you have a noise curfew?

Yes – no amplified music in the campground at all and keep general noise down after 10pm.   Campground neighbours are only 3 to 5 metres away behind a thin fabric tent – campers all have to get along and exhausted children need to go to sleep early.  So, people breaking these rules and showing no respect for others, will be asked to leave the park.  See our Park Guidelines for details

Do you take large groups?

Generally speaking, no. We believe that large gatherings detract from the enjoyment of others.  Generally a maximum of 3 families or 2 to 3 sites. However, in low season, we may be able to accommodate groups.
