Stunning location you do have to book or call ahead as it’s very popular, animals come up to while eating or at your tent. Amenities are very clean, office opens from 11am and need to purchase shower tokens.

Great parks campsite. Make sure you call ahead if you need access to showers though. Parks were leaving early that day and you need to see them to get tokens for the showers (they left some hidden away for me). Great showers. Bring your own fire wood. Be careful of the super friendly currawongs.

A well-maintained forested campsite by a white sand beach in the national park. - at end of approximately 12km gravel road navigable by any car though slippery in rain - campers self-register at booth (cash only) between May and October (office uncrewed); at office other times during daytime or via phone/email via national parks website - toilets - showers (fee via token from national parks office; office is uncrewed in winter) - fires not permitted autumn-spring; in fireplaces other times subject to bushfire hazard warning - no shops in vicinity-some at Port Arthur 4km south of Fortescue Bay turnoff from Arthur Highway. The campsites become crowded during holiday times and may be full. The day use area has BBQ at the shelter. Water is available via bubbler and should be rolling-boiled 3 minutes to remove any contaminants. WALKS NEARBY Campsite is at the start of the walking track to Cape Huay and Bivouac and Canoe bays in the other direction. Both are day walks. - the Cape Huay track has hundreds of steps and is a Grade 3 walk-some bushwalking experience recommended; bring water, wet weather, warm clothing - Fortescue Bay is the end of the Three Capes walking track ($).
