Black Springs Campground is definitely worth the drive in. Takes about an hour and 10 minutes from Coffin Bay township. You 100% need a 4wd. Challenging track if you are a beginner but for seasoned 4wd drivers you’ll be fine. Pretty easy just bit rough in some spots but fun and lots of sandy spots. We had no issues getting in.
We stayed in the park for 3 days and explored. 7 mile beach and the dunes were great and Point Sit Issac.
Caught fish off the beach at Black Springs and saw dolphins. Lots of wildlife. Long drop toilets were amazingly clean and not smelly. Just keep the lid shut once your done.
Lots of wildlife and bees around.
Once you arrive you’ll be glad you picked this slice of paradise. We loved it.
Also if you want a fire don’t forget to Take your own wood in as it’s a National park you can’t collect it.
ENJOY.

We’ve visited many NPs on our trip over the last six months but this was the first one where the park entrance had no person, no machine to take card or cash payments, no honesty box and so absolutely no way to pay the park entry fee if you can’t do so online as we couldn’t. After consideration we decided to continue to the campground in the hope there’d be a way of paying there – but no. Apparently this is because of vandalism and theft of funds. So, do your best to organise it online before you get there!
Once paid up, it is worth the visit.

Enjoyed exploring sections of the park accessible to 2wd cars. Lots of emus and the odd kangaroo. Some nice camping spots and particularly enjoyed the walk along beach where we came across a sea Lion. Some lovely coastal views. Good facilities at campgrounds

Coffin Bay National Park is large and extensive and some of the scenery is average but go to the coast and the views are exceptional and some of the best you will see anywhere. In particular the lookout at Point Avoid and Golden Island , all accessible by a sealed road are top class.

Sadly the weather we had was terrible and really took away from all the other lovely pictures I’ve been seeing, it was too cold, windy and wet for us to swim or even paddle our feet. I’m sure it’s lovely when the weather is good. Got through all the stops in 2 hours.

A short drive from Port Lincoln the sealed road will take to a number of lookouts to Point Avoid, Almonta Beach and ends at the Golden Island lookout. All well worth spending sometime there. The rest of 5he Park is sand and for 4wd.
Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.
