Fees apply at this location and are made onsite via a self-registration booth, cash in the envelope so notes or coins, have the correct money, pit the tear off section on your dash. Council does not take bookings for the sites and availability is on a first come, first serve basis. Western River has the best of both worlds: a lovely, peaceful river that runs into a secluded white sandy beach. The beach is typical of the beaches along the North Coast of Kangaroo Island and is accessible from the camping ground by walking across the bridge. There are unpowered sites suitable for tents and camper trailers. Facilities include toilets, sheltered picnic area and bbq. Generators are permitted between 7:00am and 10:00pm. Chainsaws are prohibited. Campgrounds are closed on catastrophic fire danger days. Pets are permitted.

Gravel campsite looks like a car park, not suitable for tents no grass and ground to hard for pegs. 1 clean drop toilet, no showers, no wifi, rubbish bins, very protected and picturesque valley, spotted 2 glossy black cockatoos, camp kitchen with clean bbq.



Isn't it interesting-different views. We've just explored this spot and love it. We have to head back to Stokes - cause we left shoes on the beach Isolated Clean Away from wind Beautiful beach Crystal clear water Yes - ash/chunks of burnt wood. But it's beautiful



Water is still full of ash from the fires but still a stunning spot to camp. We managed to bring our 15ft caravan down here. Road was okay but would of been tight if passing another vehicle on the way. Lots of kangaroos and sheep
