We only stayed for one night but would definitely stay again. It was very quiet with basic facilities but for the price it was perfect. Clean toilets, kitchen (toaster/kettle) and hot showers ($2pp extra). At $10 for a powered site it's much cheaper than most campsites.
Lovely owners, good facilities for being a small camp. Nice and quiet and felt really safe. Only 2-3 caravans on site. Affordable at $12 per night for an unpowered site for 2 ppl (that included $4 for 2 hot showers, so $8 for camping alone).
Lovely peaceful camping spot run by Vicky and Frank. Clean and newly painted hot showers/flushing toilets. Make sure you take a wander up the road to check out the house names!
Small grassed section about 1 kilometer short of the beach, just as you come into Scotts Ferry. Toilets not great, gents didn't have hand-basin. Both toilets and showers are in concrete water tanks. Kitchen seemed fine. Nice and cheap ($5 for non powered site for the family), but permanent caravans etc seemed to fill half the site and were in a state of disrepair. Seemed to have a bunch of strange long stay residents, which made for slightly uncomfortable atmosphere.
Custodians very friendly. Difficult to access the beach as sometimes you have to ford through 50-100m stretch of water just beyond the carpark.
free one night stay for international travelers, brilliant for people passing through. then 10 dollars for a site, doesnt matter how many there are of you.
good facilities with a kitchen, toilet, shower. laundry and drinking water.
