Coffin Bay Caravan Park, Coffin Bay

Click here for park details on My Park List
Drive well into township and follow esplanade till you see the caravan park sign - note that entrance to caravan park is on the side road just before the park (there's a big sign telling you this in the corner of the caravan park as you approach), not on the esplanade itself. Ph: 08 8685 4170. Pets allowed, at manager's discretion, on leash at all times.

Book in advance in the busy season or you won't get in. This park is very close to the few shops that are here. The larger amenities block appears to be newish or renovated and is immaculate. If a dining experience is on the agenda 1802 is the name of a restaurant just down the road. The oysters are fabulous and the food is of a high standard.
$33 for 2A. Sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers.
Liked:- There are many drive through sites in this park. Maybe a majority,please take note other park owners.
Parking:- Plenty of booking in parking right at office.
Local Information:- This is a very pretty town for fish catching and oyster eating. Drive through the National Park. The scenery is great.

Previous reports are 'on the money'. There is a good hotel here with excellent meals (I ordered an entree sized pasta, and struggled to finish it). Oysters galore in the town at cheaper prices than the hotel. Short drive to Port Lincoln where you can spend all day exploring. Easily negotiated, large powered sites. Very clean amenities.

Great little park again - we would come back. Some sites are a little unlevel but a bit of effort is well worthwhile. Amenities are second to none for cleanliness and room. Quiet spot.

End summer was very dry with dirt sites and asked for one of a very few with matting and was successful in getting changed. Ablutions great, showers clean and spacious, town lovely but food shopping in town abysmal - strawberries $7.70 for a small punnett. Bring your own food !
