This is now officially an approved Grant Council free camp for self-contained vehicles only! It's the camp on the eastern side of 8-Mile Creek. (GPS pin is 50m out!) Leave no trace and don't leave any rubbish people! There's one large grassed area, whereas I stayed for 2-days at the other camp (other side of creek) where there are several secluded sites. Good spot to stay whilst visiting all the attractions around Mt. Gambier. Ewen's Pools is only 4.9kms away (fantastic dive/snorkel experience.) The bird hide is only 700m away and worth the walk too. Well done - forward thinking and progressive Grant Council. Spent my $'s in Port MacDonnell as a result. Shrimpy The ManintheBlackVan Retired Van-lifer

Eight mile creek is not advertised as camping, but the information centre recommended it as 24 hour self contained and take your rubbish with you. There are two areas, driving east from Port MacDonnall turn right before the bridge into several sites, or over the bridge and turn right into more sites. Good access to the beach and " Surfing Swans " No facilities or water available



Two sides free camping. Plenty of space especially if you go down further. A lot of people free camping here. Creek is so crystal clear!
