General description: This campsite is good for larger groups. However, it isn't a sunny site. In the busy season, it may have the odd camper hiking on the old roadbed and passing right through the campsite. Update from a 2013 visitor indicates that the thunderbox is located north of the tentsites along the old roadway.

Overall accessibility: The short set of steps up from the beach mean this campsite is next to ideally accessible.
