An interesting campsite with wind towers very close, but the noise is just like the wind. There are 5 easy spots to camp behind the dunes and away from the wind. The beach, just over the sandy track is covered in seaweed. The toilet is very clean, but remember to take your own toilet paper. The gravel road in is in good condition. A great overnight spot.



Thank you to the Yorke Peninsula Council for another great 'bush camp' area. These sites are much appreciated by travellers. Interesting to stop and read about the amazing wi d farm too. Feel free to follow us on Insta: Our___Travels



Stayed 2 nights here recently. By ourselves. Very sheltered from the wind behind sand dunes. Toilet clean. Bring own loo paper. Beach full of seaweed. Next stop was Goldsmith beach, looked nicer and had views.
