Not AT Cape Leveque.Middle Lagoon is South of Cape Leveque, but well North of Beagle Bay. A good quiet, well run camp spot. Close enough to do a day trip to Cape Leveque if that's want you want.

There are one or two 'private' spots where local traditional owners permit camping (for a fee). We visited one, from memory it was on the road out to One Arm Point. We just stumbled on it and I have no contact details. Some others might be able to help.

I'll second that. I cannot remember the name as they had only just mowed the grass but it looked good with views to the fish hatchery (well worth a visit) and great fishing potential it seemed. We were there back in June and just loved the whole area.

Chlli Creek near Lombadina has a camping ground. Small fee. Good fishing.

And Lombadina is a wonderful little aboriginal community. Probably the best we have visited.Bakery (open 3 days a week from memory), jewellery making from Trochus shells, small craft / art gallery, small shop, no grog. Good friendly people making a real go of their community. Well worth a visit and our support. A bit of info here:
Lombadina

It is a bit further south though from memory and perhaps a bit beyond easy day trip distance to Cape Leveque (if that matters).

I stand corrected, the link I posted says the Lombadina community runs day tours on Tuesdays and Sundays that include Cape Leveque. Depart 7.30 AM and return 4.00 PM, so it is in range for day trips.

There is a little place called Gambanan which is about 5 k's from One Arm Point, pretty private little place with not too many people. Plenty of space also . Just Google it, plenty of info on it. Good place

I stayed four days at Djoodoon which is down a track on the right just opposite the Lombodina turn off. It is a narrow sandy track but I got up it ok although some people towing camper trailers found it a bit hard going. The track is 7 or 8 km I think and it is about 11 km from the turn off to Djoodoon to One Arm Point. The camp is basic but neat and clean. I had a great time there. Excellent fishing.

Regards,
Bob

Middle Lagoon is an excellent spot, really a must if you are up that way, good swimming and fishing and great beaches for walks etc... Closer to the top is Gambanan run by Frank and his family approx 10 km down the One Arm Point road on the left hand side. Delightful camp and worth a few days. When we were there 2008 the young lads (15 & 18 yrs) were taking trips out to the horizontal waterfalls in tinnies (not for me though) Good crabbing and great for birds even the allusive Gouldian finches. Tourist info has the number.

We retired to travell

Hi outback.
We stayed at Bullies Camp or Djoodoon about 30 klms south of the cape.Basic but perfect for us.If you are into fishing this is the spot from whiting to trevelly and big sharks for a bit of fun.Very quite and great sunsets and swimming if you like that.Say hi to Jeff if you end up there.

Cheers Graeme.
