One of several free campsites in the Bay of Fires conservation area about 15 km north of Saint Helens. Access by 2wd, with bitumen road, then gravel tracks to sandy sites. Suitable for all camping setups, but very T ight for big rigs. Swimcart Beach is the best dog friendly beach of the several areas in Bay of Fires with about 500 m of designated dune camping. Demand for campsites here can be strong, especially during peak periods. Patience, timing and a little luck are often required to jag the perfect place. Sometimes you may need to camp on the western side of the dunes to wait for the perfect position. Whilst the water is beautiful, the surf can be a little rough and might be a bit much for young children. There may be sharks. Surf fishing and walking along the beach are popular activities. No power. No water. Dog friendly. Max stay 28 days. Drop toilets are available.A blackwater dump station is located on the corner of Tully and Young streets in St Helens. Please do not dump chemical toilet contents in the campground toilets. There are no rubbish bins provided and you will need to take your rubbish with you to dispose of properly.
