South Croppies Point camping area
These campsites are at the northern side of this scenic point. They have spectacular ocean outlooks but are relatively exposed to the weather. From Homestead Rd, turn left 2 km north of the Big Waterhouse Lake track, then take the right fork 2 km further on through the scrub to windswept Croppies Point. No facilities are provided and no firewood collecting is allowed: bring water and wood or a gas/fuel stove. Track conditions vary and it is best to check before travel.

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.
