Moreton Island is renowned for its beautiful beaches and close proximity. What many people don't know is that there are great places to camp. If you are the type of person who loves the fresh air and the natural beauty that can be found in nature, you will really love what this island has to offer.
Most campgrounds are state or county-owned and managed, which means they are well-maintained and very safe for the whole family. If you're planning an encamp at Moreton Island this summer, you might want to explore some of these places.
An excellent campsite can be found at Heckscher State Park, located directly on the Great South Bay in West Suffolk. There are some great waterfront views and lovely gardens to explore. There are nature trails as well as bike trails for those who like to exercise in the sun. The camping area is well maintained and tidy by a small staff on duty 24 hours a day.
Facilities include a toilet with a shower. Built-in sanitation and barbecue facilities are located near each campsite. Motorhomes are welcome, so if a tent isn't your thing, that's okay too. Camping costs about $16 per night during the week and $20 on the weekends. There is a discount for locals. This is one of the best campgrounds on Long Island.
