Being just six kilometres east of the 12 Apostles, the park is one of the closest places to camp near the Port Campbell National Park so it is the perfect base for sightseeing the highlights of the Great Ocean Road including Lock Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps and the 12 Apostles.

The Princetown Recreation Reserve offers powered and unpowered sites in a natural setting with kangaroos grazing within the reserve. Clean and basic amenities and barbeques are available at the reserve, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

Don’t leave your furry friend at home, dogs are welcome year-round.

Fishing, hiking and canoeing are just a few of the activities that are enjoyed by people who camp at the Princetown Recreation Reserve.

When you stay, your camping fees not only go into maintaining the campground, they are also reinvested back into the magnificent Great Ocean Road coastline and will go towards maintaining a wide range of public facilities, assets and infrastructure and other coastal projects.
