There are two campgrounds in Peggs Beach Conservation Area: Peggs Beach and Black River campgrounds.​ The campgrounds are attractive but facilities are basic. There are no powered sites.

Black River campground has non-flushing toliets. Peggs Beach campground has flushing toilets. There is no safe drinking at either location. Water from the campground tank should be boiled for at least three minutes or treated before drinking.

Both campgrounds are quite close to the busy Bass Highway but the adjacent wide beach with four-wheel-drive boat-launching facilities more than compensates for this. Vehicle access on the beach is for boat launch and retrieval only, four-wheel-driving is otherwise not permitted. 

Peggs Beach tent sites are nestled among coastal vegetation. The more open areas can ​accommodate caravans. A shower cubicle is available for campers to hang solar showers. This campground is open from November to April each year.

Black River campground is very popular with locals and spots are at a premium during the summer holiday season.  Secluded sites among trees are next to the Black River estuary. While this campground is open all year - the northern sites behind the foredunes are closed from May to September while the campground is quiet.
