Eyre Peninsula Camping

Hi everyone.
We're leaving Perth in 2 weeks and heading east planning to spend Easter free camped somewhere around Streaky Bay. Haslam or Perlubie Beach are possibilities but I think that Perlubie may be a bit sand boggy for the van. We've stayed there before in Oct. 2008 but not stayed at Haslam. What's Haslam like and are there any other alternatives around the area? We're hoping to get there a couple of days before Easter and get in early for a good spot - depends on headwinds of course.
Many thanks

Hi John and Helen

We loved Haslam, which in 2005 was an honesty box camping area by the jetty. Very quiet, although very windy when we got there.
By that time the showers and power had been removed due to people outstaying their welcome and not paying enough. There were flush toilets and water.

Close to Easter the Eyre Peninsula is very crowded! It is a very popular Easter and school holiday destination at that time and it is also a very popular time for fishermen! All camping spots are likely to be full if you arrive close to Easter! Caravan Parks will require advance booling. Last year we did not book and could not get a place between Streaky Bay and Ceduna - we got the last site at Shelley Beach CP in Ceduna a few days before Easter. All free camps were full. You might be better off to book ahead in a CP rather than rely on turning up to a free camp just before Easter. Otherwise arrive at the Eyre Peninsula a bit later - we found the Nullarbor great over Easter and easily spent a week getting fom Ceduna to Norseman Lynne!
