Perfection!

Absolutely magic spot with ocean views. On-site manager Wayne was friendly and helpful. Reasonable price - the view alone is worth the $ - flushing toilets a bonus!

Appalling service attitude
Feb 2021 • Couples
This place must be doing really well because the manager (or someone who professed to be important) is the rudest person we've encountered in 10 years of travels (to identify him, he drove a blue Holden ute).
We hadn't planned to stay but have a look around for future reference. We parked outside and walked to the signage which had instructions for checking in.
We started walking across the park & this person called out. He told us it was private property &, like going to a cafe or supermarket, we had to sign in! (It is wide open space but no QR code or sign-in sheet).
He then said "you could be from anywhere & have the disease"!
He was dismissive of any questions, got in his car & drove off.
What a horrible, boorish bogan.
I doubt he'll be concerned but we won't be bac

Beautiful beach. But don't go in holiday season. If you do, expect vey little sleep.. too many young one's have no respect for families with children or anyone for that matter... music and loudness of their voices. we were awake til 3 in the morning a couple weeks ago.. there is no noise restrictions here AT ALL.......

1 star campground with 4 star pricing
Nov 2020 • Couples
Location is great being on the beach but:
Amenities are poor or non existent:
Toilets wouldn't pass a COVID-19 test
Price is per person per night A$12.50 C$7.50 so same as a proper caravan park if you add it up
No pottable water
No electricity
Half hour drive to empty your black tank
Half hour drive for even basic groceries
Purport to be Low Cost is bordering on a breach of the Trade Practices Act.
Will never go back unless they either add electricity and water for those prices or they charge the $10 per night per site fee similarly equipped campgrounds charge.

Spectacular piece of coastline
Dec 2020
Long narrow clean beach, a blend of stone and sand. Stunning coastline with majestic cliffs and a cave to explore.
Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Plenty of activities

Rapid Bay is on e of a few beautiful beaches south of Adelaide. There are some historical monuments and a long fishing Jetty. At one end of the beach is a large Cave to be explored.

A must see in S.A
Nov 2019 • Couples
Have loved this place ever since I was little when we’d camp here almost on every school holiday. Beautiful character to the old jetty and a nice new jetty is in place. I hope the old jetty remains there too as it adds to the great vibe. Perfect spot for camping right on the beach front and extremely affordable.
Definitely a must see in South Australia.

Sunset heaven!
Aug 2019 • Couples
We only had time for a brief stop here, but I really want to go back as soon as possible. The sun was setting as we arrived at the jetty and yet the turquoise water still looked so inviting. I think this would be a great place to visit for a couple of days in a campervan with diving and fishing gear. You will need to bring food and water as we couldn't find a shop nearby.

Gorgeous snorkelling
Mar 2019
If you enjoy snorkelling or scuba diving - this is the place for you! It is just divine. It can get busy on weekends but don't let that put you off - the sea around old jetty is just full of amazing coloured fish of many, many varieties and if you like sea weed there are loads of different varieties of that too.
