  • Absolutely gorgeous beach park. Great for day trips and boating as well as overnight camping. Tent sites are up on the hill so you get sun and a view from your site. A really stunning location makes up for lack of full washrooms, etc. We will be back!
  • Scenary and price can't get better. BRING YOUR OWN SHOWER. And POWER . 2 BOATRAMP S with no DOCKS.
  • Rated low so I always have a spot to stay myself. It's actually a very nice site
  • Great day .. launched the boat .. caught our limit.. good Fisher never tells where.. @!
  • The smell of the sea, the view of the Sunshine Coast, the quiet. It's worth a half hour or so stop there.
