Bay of Fires Conservation Area offers free beach-side camping. Camping is permitted only in designated campgrounds. There are also more elevated sites among the trees that have views of the shoreline.
Campfires are only permitted at designated campgrounds within designated fireplaces. Campfires are prohibited during seasonal fire restrictions. Never leave your campfire unattended - it is prohibited. For campfire safety and how to check whether any restrictions are in place see Campfires and fire restrictions.
Always check local signage for campfire restrictions before lighting a campfire. Bring your own water and firewood. It is best to have a fuel stove with you for cooking, as restrictions can change.
For the safety of everyone - completely extinguish your campfire before you depart and ensure no hot coals remain. Remember - Soak it. Stir it. Soak it again.
Please take all rubbish away with you.
Campers are encouraged to bring fire pots for use when fire restrictions are not in place.
The maximum stay is four weeks.
Dogs (on leads only) are permitted in all campgrounds except Jeanneret Beach. See the Break o'Day online map. Dog owners are required to observe the
Break O'Day Council's dogs on beaches restrictions.
