Hi all, we are travelling to the yorke peninsular and would like some suggestions on good camping and fishing spots. We prefer to bush camp as much as possible, close to some good fishing and crabbing spots preferably. Any suggestion would be much appreciated.

Hi, if you visit http://www.harvestcorner.com.au/#!tourism/c5a2 you'll find lots of information about bush camping sites on Yorke Peninsula - you could also call the VIC at Minlaton on 08 88532600. There is no way to reserve or book a site, so if you're thinking of coming over Easter, you'll have to be prepared to share!
Cheers,
Cathy

Hi

There are many such spots down that way and depends on where you want to stay.

Such places where you can camp almost right on the beach are places like Point Souttar,
Corny Point (near the lighthouse), Gleesons Landing, Gym Beach and the list goes on.

It is a great place to visit with lots to see. If you have not been there before, open my blog below from when we were down there last in January.

Have a great time down there.

Hi Stephen,

Going by these photos it looks like we will have to go further than the Daughters in Ardrossan one weekend. Very informative Blog.

Also I think you should be in photography for a career !

Cheers, have an enjoyable Easter.

Hi Paul

If you have not been any further than Ardrossan, it is well worth the drive and the bottom end of the Peninsula is one place that we never get sick of visiting.

Now photography as a career would be great, better than what I am doing now....lol

We are over at Renmark and having a great time, and all to best also to you for Easter.



Cheers

Ah Stephen your blog is wonderfully comprehensive and great pix too. Did I detect a little irony when the wind sprang up one morning. We were there in Sept and battled with the breezes. One evening at Stenhouse Bay it had calmed right down up at the lighthouse, luring us into a false sense of security. It was too good to be true and by 1 a.m. it was blowing a gale back at Cable Bay and the tent pole springs were squeaking. I spent the rest of the night in the car! Ahh, memories.....W

Hi Warrie

Thanks for that. Like many coastal locations around our great country, the wind can spring up when you least expect it...lol

There are a few good camp spots just north of Balgowan (on the west side). One of the least used of the good camping areas, though as mentioned, I wouldn't bank on having a lonely time over Easter!

Cheers,

Mark
