Pack the car and head to this sheltered camping area, right near the beach. Spend the night under the stars among coastal trees and spend your days exploring the surrounding marine park and recreation area. Take the dog for a walk along the beach, or pile everyone into the car for a drive. Try you luck at fishing and cook your catch over your camp fire.

The camping area is named after the MV Beagle, a 10m game fishing vessel. While on its maiden voyage in April 1970, the MV Beagle capsized in mountainous seas while attempting to cross the bar at Wide Bay. Sadly, of the six men aboard, only one survived.
