Wake up to the sights and sounds of native birds and grazing kangaroos. Walk around to Merlo's Lookout for beautiful views or stroll along the water's edge on the Collar Bay Walking Trail that links all the campgrounds.

Devil Cove is closed seasonally, opening for peak periods (Public Holidays and School Holidays).

The campground area can accommodate tents and some caravans and campervans. There are hot toilets and flushing toilets. There is no boat parking available at the campground and sites are unpowered.

There are picnic tables and shared fireplaces throughout the campground, however no fires are permitted on individual campsites and you need to bring your own firewood.
