Here you will get the friendliest welcome in the whole of Australia. Plus you will be perfectly located on a beautiful camp site with great pitches that are private and secluded. There is drinking water available and bikes to use to take the short ride to Horseshoe Bay where you will find great restaurants and bars. This campground is ideally located away from the main populated areas but within easy reach of the various Magnetic Island activities like walking and snorkelling. Tee and Steve are such great hosts and so helpful. We will be back to see them again as well as the lovely Magnetic Island. Thank you so much for a perfect stay and it’s a shame we couldn’t extend it. Russell & Lucinda

Hidden Gem- will be back!
Tee and Steve are so welcoming and have created a beautiful space. Booked for 5 nights and have been very happy. Will surely be back to this little gem. Tee and Steve go above and beyond to make sure you’re comfortable, sharing some delicious veg and chook eggs from the property. They also are happy to share tips and recommendations for the island. Also..when they tell you about the taco van listen!

Camping with lots to do
Tee was very welcoming to us both with plenty of information about the island. The camp was quiet at night and we were so close to places of interest. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would love to return.
