Deep Creek NP is the spot. There are several camping areas.
Couple of years since we went, but a great area.
Spend the day at Blowhole Beach (4x4 access)

Cheers,

We stayed at Stringybark camp ground a couple of weeks ago, big sites, shady, flushing tiolets and hot showers, $15pn and a once of $8 entry to park. If you are going there i would in early, 17 sites from memory.

The other camp grounds are $5 pn plus entry, drop loos.

Hi Krakka,

I could see the sunset could be spectactular but unfortuanetly not on this occasion. However I decided to go a little creative.

I went to Deep Creek at the end of November. Stayed at the Trig Campground which was a nice place, big sites, clean composting toilets, around $5/night per site plus park entry (one off, per vehicle). Good access to some bushwalks, including Deep Creek cove. Heaps of kangaroos!

I didn't try out the 4WD tracks though I understand there are only two of them (Boat Harbour & Blowhole beach tracks).

If I was going in summer I'd try to camp a little closer to the beach!

You didn't miss much with those tracks Amy. Very nice scenery and view from those tracks, but Boat Harbour Beach track is easily accessable by car now, in the dry anyway, as with Blowhole although Blowhole could be a bit too loose surface for car at times. Great views though.
