Cosy Corner Campground, Tas
Cutely named Cosy Corner Free Campground, this is a large camping area close to the coastline with many camping areas nearby and to the south. It is important to note that this campsite is very popular around school holiday time, Christmas holidays and at Easter and long weekends.

For images, videos and the full RV Daily experience, read this in our online magazine.

Cosy Corner Free Campground is in the southern section of the Bay of Fires Conservation Area. The northern end is best suited to bigger caravans, campervans and motorhomes and the southern end has sheltered sites among trees.

Access is signposted off Gardens Road (C848) and there are entrances 5.4km and 5.6km north of the Binalong Bay Road intersection. Facilities are limited, but the views are superb. Once you walk down to the white sand with orange lichen covered granite boulders, it is not hard to know why this is such a popular spot. More info can be found at the Parks and Wildlife service in St Helens 03 6376 1550.
