The Campground is on
It is the only National Campground on the island.
It is perfectly situated at the halfway point and there is only miles of beach between you and the few touristas in OC proper.
It has cold showers so I would suggest bringing a Solar bag for showers.
Generators are permitted during certain hours.
Use Google Earth to scope the sites, then call the campground during hours to get the best sites. The sites that back up to the dunes are the best. You have some wind protection, best access to the beach.

Biz Campin!

He didn't expect; he was not disappointed!

I guess it's natural not to make too many "hard wired" mods to a trailer when it's new. Now that our Base Camp is a couple of years old, I'm going to build a table for the trailer using 2 of these legs from Vintage Trailer Supply. I just have to decide what height legs to order. My gut says go with the 28.5" poles, but I want to make some measurements first. I'm going to make the table from 5/4 glued up stock. The table will be the same length as the benches and wide enough to be comfortable for both eating and using laptops.

I'll post pix when I have it built.

This is my solution to the BaseCamp table requirement. The base is from a stand that came with a set of rollers, that I used for something else. The top is a 19mm thick version of the same material, color, finish that the storage and sink tops are made from. It's been milled to 650mm diameter and fits neatly into the galley walk in recess for travel.

This is the front glass protection solution. Outer layer is black heavy waterproof canvas, next is a 3mm high impact closed foam layer used in the production of motorcycle racing back protectors. Inner layer is gray heavy duty canvas and the pop clips are stainless steel. I will fit some tonneau cover elastic loops and hooks at the corners just for a little double security. The impossibility of replacing the original glass readily in Australia made this the most important mod I could do.
