​​​At Friendly Beaches, basic camping is available at Isaacs Point on a first-in, first-served basis for a maximum of 14 nights. Campsites are tucked between th​e​ coastal scrub, with a range of sites suitable for tents, campervans and caravans.

Here, the endless stretches of white sandy beach are perfect for long walks, while the ocean entices swimmers and surfers. Fish off the beaches or the rocks and enjoy the ever-changing colours of the granite in the fading evening light. 

Isaacs Point has pit toilets but no fresh water. 

Freycinet is a Fuel Stove Only Area​ as it is very dry and vulnerable to fire. No fires are allowed in the National Park. Gas and fuel stoves may be used except on days of Total Fire Ban, when no naked flames of any sort, including gas and fuel stoves, are allowed in the open.​
