Camping area features: located next to the beach and surrounded by areas of paperbark and mangrove forests—be crocwise in croc country.

Location: the first camp site is located 500m north of the camping information shelter. The last one is near the mouth of Bluemetal Creek, 1.4km from the camping information shelter.

Access: the camping area can be reached by four-wheel-drive vehicles only due to very soft sand, narrow roads and tight turnarounds. Care should be taken on the sandy road within the park as passing cars may be bogged. Trailers can be towed with care, however they can only camp in sites 1–3 due to site sizes and tight turnarounds. Caravans and motorhomes cannot access this camping area.

Number of sites: five separate and numbered sites.
