3 Mile Bend Campground - Beachport Conservation Park

Private Campground - South Australia

Favourite

Located approximately 3km northwest of Beachport via the Lake George Road. The seven sites fringe the lake edge and all are accessible with a 2WD vehicle. Sites vary in size, with most being suitable for small to medium sized caravans. Each site is nestled under paper bark tea- trees, offering good shade and wind protection. The lake is salty and not suitable for swimming, but is home to many types of water birds. The back beach is approximately 1.5km to the west, along a 2WD and 4WD track.

Campsites need to be booked prior to arrival.  Length of a booking: The length of stay in any one campsite/campground is limited to 5 days.

Beachport Conservation Park's white sandy beaches and coastal flora is home to an array of birdlife, making it an ideal spot for birdwatching. Bring your binoculars for the chance to spy a rare orange-bellied parrot that occupies the coastal saltmarsh and beach dune habitats. As you explore the park look out for hooded plovers which are often seen nesting along the beach.

Special features of the park include its weathered limestone cliffs and middens - the discarded remains of shellfish left by the Boandik Aboriginal people. The walking trail around Woolley Lake offers panoramic views of the ocean and neighbouring Lake George.

Afterwards, enjoy a picnic at Lake George or go swimming or sailing in the waters at Five Mile Drift.
