This site has sheltered, shady nooks among coastal vegetation where you can set up out of the wind. Head out towards Waterhouse Point via the track off Homestead Rd, 1.4 km east of the Herbies Landing turn-off. Where the track splits, about 1 km in, continue 100 m to a small number of campsites by the beach, where there is a boat-launching site. Bring drinking water and firewood.

This campsite is located in Waterhouse Conservation Area

This 25 km stretch of dune-backed beach and coastal lagoons is reached from the B82 via Blackmans Lagoon and Homestead rds. A network of rough and sandy tracks – some only passable with a 4WD vehicle – leads to beach launching sites, sheltered camping areas and rocky headlands. Campers can stay for up to 4 weeks and need to be self-sufficient for water, firewood and food; they should also bring a portable toilet. There are no dump sites here.
