Sandon River on one side and the ocean on the other, this well established campground is an excellent spot for the camper with a tinny. There is a boat ramp, amenities block and public phone so you won't feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

Although this is a large, popular campground, it still offers the nature lover a chance to have some peace and quiet with access to a number of walking tracks and large stretches of unspoiled coastline.

For the fisherman, the choice of ocean or estuary within a stones throw of your camp, this site is a must.
