Beach-side camping in Goolawah National Park, with cold water showers and flushing toilets.

This is as close as you can get to the water without worrying about the tide washing you away. The beach has a very popular surf break, which means at times the wax heads will be out in force.

It is a very lovely spot, with sheltered picnic tables, barbecues and grassy campsites.

You will need to bring your own firewood if you plan on using the wood fired barbecues to cook all the fish you just caught.
