We loved our stay at this beautiful little campground. Plenty of space so campers are not on top of each other. Nice shady areas and well protected from the weather. All facilities were kept very clean and the camp manager was lovely. Plomer and Point Plomer Rd up from Port Macquarie were not maintained and is a slow drive full of big potholes. Enter this camp from the North.



The perfect campsite. For us, this is the best one on this whole North Central Coast line. Short walk to a dog friendly beach, very quiet, level sites and are only a couple of other people here. If you are self-contained there really is no need to camp anywhere else if you're in the area.

Quiet on Wednesday night in late June, maybe 10 other small groups, the ocean waves lulled me to sleep. The campground is not flash but plenty of spots to tuck up into. There's flush toilets and sink for handwashing. Short walk to beach for beautiful sunrise and lovely long beach walk. Great for a night or two. Felt safe as solo woman traveller in tent.
