Dropped in on a weekly visit to Kangaroo Island and was amazed by the beach and signs of native animals. Toilets were clean. Watch the hill if towing a caravan.

If you are looking for a quite, secluded and picturesque place to camp then we would recommend this place. It is half way between Penneshaw and Cape Willoughby and along the Chapman River. There are two camping areas right next to the river that are...More
