Wreck Rock Campground and Middle Rock Campground, Deepwater National Park, QLD.

Wreck Rock.

Wreck Rock Camping Area

We really enjoyed camping at Wreck Rock. The sites are protected from the wind and nicely separated. It is only a short walk to Wreck Rock Beach.

Middle Rock Camping Area

There was no one camping at Middle Rock when we were there, however, a few 4WD enthusiasts passed by from time to time. Although we like remote and quiet camping areas we did prefer Wreck Rock as there is no water and no toilets at Middle Rock and it is a longer walk to the beach.
