    One of my favourite parks. Powered and non powered sites are the same price. We preferred a non powered site right on the water. Gorgeous. It is a little expensive but the position and view is worth it. Plenty of walks and bike paths. Loved watching the kangaroos and whales.

    The park is very expensive considering there is only amenities, a couple of BBQs and nothing else. Location is fantastic. Right next to the historic Trial Bay gaol. Kangaroos hop around your site have almost no fear of humans. The park is open and roomy and has lots of grass. The sites right on the ocean front are very popular. There are no annex slabs. The park can be accessed by anyone and cars drive past to reach the picnic ground nearby so securing your items around your side would be a good idea.
