Default Eyre Peninsula

Hi Guys,

Can anyone please recommend a nice spot on the Eyre Peninsula to camp for a couple of nights in late Jan? Either a camp ground or free camp location would be great.

Much appreciated

Craig

I have heard that both Coffin Bay NP and Lincoln NP are very nice.
Do a bit of research on these 2 places and hopefully you will find a suitable camp spot.
I'm looking forward to trying to get over there myself to check it all out in the not too distant future.
I've been to Lincoln once. It's a beautiful area. Take your fishing rods, King George whiting can be reeled in off the beach over there
Have fun, Dan.

I just got back from the Eyre Peninsula in late October and also would recommend both the Lincoln and Coffin Bay national parks. Coffin Bay park has a great partly shaded camping area directly opposite a really nice bay. It can probably accommodate about 15 or so campers and caravans and has areas of good shade.

It isn't 4WD to get there but is at the start of the seriously soft 4WD track to the southern most tip of the park. Well worth a drive in itself.

Highly recommended area for camping, swimming and fishing.

Thanks very much guys.

Coffin bay was on the list (mainly for the oysters...) but I wasn't aware of Lincoln NP so I will do some research and check it out.

Cheers

Craig

Spent 4 days in Coffin bay and ate 12 dozen oysters between the wife and me. No comment on how many worked.

I spent nearly 3 weeks in Coffin Bay before Easter this year, awesome place. We did about a week in the Coffin Bay National Park and then nearly 2 weeks in Coffin Bay Caravan Park - both were good.
You might struggle to get a spot in either of the NPs in January....
I didn't come across many bush camps outside the NPs but there are a few showing in Camps 6 - do you have one of those books?
There was one particular one a I remember as it was a pretty cool spot - maybe 5km north of Port Lincoln there was a short track (50m) that left the highway down to a carpark by the water, there were a few people camping there when we went past a few times.
If you like fishing and 4wding a few days won't be enough.

Are you suggesting my wife and I were windy after so many oysters?
