Didn't camp but lagoon is great for birdwatching. Place was pretty quiet when we came through, good if other campsites are full.



Such a pleasant, peaceful place. A lot of bird life, koalas and nice walks to view the 'heritage listed' eucalyptus still. Short drive to Kingscote.



Such a beautiful spot! I didn't have great weather during my visit so I opted for Riverside rather than beach camping. This spot was really clean, quiet, a 10 minute drive to Kingscote and I was the only one there for two days. Heaps of birds, koalas and even a resident Rooster who sleeps above the BBQ. It says no drinking water, but the water in the toilet block is hooked up to mains so you can fill up from the sink if you need to :) I'm with Optus and reception wasn't great but there are spots there you can get it.
