A great little camping area surrounded by natural bushland with the beach on your door-step. It is located between Angels and Sharpe's Beach. Great walks along the beach and easy access to Flat Rock Reef and the rock pools.

Flat Rock Camping Ground. A haven for campers young and old. Great sites, lovely beach for walking and fossicking. Had a hiccup on arrival when somebody had set up on our site but management were great, most apologetic and did the best they could in the circumstances. (not their fault) Bathrooms kept as clean as possible considering the camp was... More

We visited Flat Rock with a group of friends, this was my first time camping with no electricity but I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. The camp kitchen has a BBQ and tables for cooking and eating, there are sinks with hot water for washing and a nice clean reasonably new amenities block with hot showers. The... More

We have been camping with friends over Christmas at this Park for about 5 years now and have found it to be a very calm peaceful place. The sites are large enough to spread out and relax. The on site managers do everything within their power to ensure that the park is kept clean and tidy. Unfortunately people feel that... More

We stay here each year at Christmas/New Year. We are disappointed that the local Council don't appreciate that campers here contribute to the Ballina community - they should be putting some money into the place thereby encouraging tourism, not putting people off. A number of other campers including ourselves this year are really wondering whether we want to return. The... More

Ballina Shire Council care very much for the campers at Flat Rock Tent Park and the park itself. The council inject money into the park every year. Council have built a brand new amenity block, new BBQs, renovation of older amenity block, gardens, planting of 50 new trees. Also on top of this, every year work is done on levelling... More

The campsite is the genuine article, complete with first-rate facilities. The other campers are all friendly and respectful, unlike the chaos of Byron. It's an open, social layout but everyone has their own private space. The nearby beaches are spectacular and you can duck up to Lennox if you need any supplies or want to go for a nice meal.

We have been holiday at 'Flat Rock' for over 10 years now. The most wonderful family holidays with memories I'll never forget. We have seen the Park Managers come and go but Kellie and David are so nice, not like some parks where the Managers are breathing down your neck non stop, especially with kids. Yes there are rules put... More

What can I say, have just come back from our favourite holiday destination with the kids, and had the best break away. Great beaches (just take your pick), all within a short walk, really clean amenities, can actually have a wood fire at night, and lots of area for the kids to just play. Thanks to the management (Dave and... More
