Inskip Point Recreation Area

The Inskip Point Recreation Area is a picturesque campsite on a beautiful beach, surrounded by stunning coastal trees, including cypress pine and beach she-oaks.

The site is just 15 minutes away by car from Rainbow Beach and is truly one of the most scenic places to set up camp.

The area is divided into five campsites to choose from, and some of them can cater to two-wheel drives such as the MV Sarawak and the SS Dorrigo. Meanwhile, The Oaks, MV Beagle, and Natone are suitable for four-wheel drives. You can choose wherever you want to set up camp, and the beaches are just a short walk away, so you can easily head on over for a swim.

From the Inskip Point Recreation Area, visitors can also easily access Tin Can Bay. You can enjoy days of more outdoor and water activities from here, including fishing, yabby pumping, kayaking, or canoeing. Tin Can Bay is an especially popular side trip for campers bringing their kids along because the waters are shallow and calm, providing them with a safe place for children to swim in.

When visiting, remember that the camping facilities here are limited, making it best for individuals who already have experience with traditional camping. Some of the amenities include composting toilets, cold faucet water for washing hands, and bins. Potable drinking water can be found at Clarkson Drive, so be sure to pack along with refillable containers with you. Additionally, a convenience truck travels through the area once a day all year long, and from there, you can buy some essentials, including ice, milk, bread, newspapers, and ice cream.

Inskip Point Recreation Area is a must-visit for avid campers and outdoor enthusiasts. You can bring your dogs along with you for as long as they are kept on a leash.
