Our second year at Tolaga Bay. Friendly atmosphere, great clean facilities and knowledgeable staff. A 1 minute walk to the historic wharf, 2 mins drive to Tolaga Bay town for basic supplies. The camp is beach front with an amazing safe sandy beach.

We stayed for one night but should've booked for a week!! Loved it. So much for the kids to do. Good old fashioned fun, no electronics required.

I have never been to Tolaga Bay before, but it's beauty & people make you feel like you shouldn't leave. Our Cabin by the sea was clean, cosy & very comfortable. Waking up to a gorgeous sunrise is the perfect start to the day. We...More
