Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area lies opposite the southern tip of Fraser Island, at the entrance to Tin Can Bay. Most of the peninsula has been set aside as a recreation area managed for nature-based recreation.
All camping areas within Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area require a camping permit and fees apply.

Relaxation is high on the list for most visitors to Inskip. The surrounding waters are rich in sea life and the area is a popular fishing spot (but please take only enough for your immediate needs—bag and size limits apply). Dolphins, dugong and turtles may be sighted.

Inskip Peninsula is a narrow, low-lying peninsula with only one road back to Rainbow Beach. Some camping areas can become flooded with access and exit tracks becoming impassable. Strong winds, tsunamis, cyclones and extremely high tides may occur here.

The campground appears to be open after the landslip. Danger area has been cordoned off.

A sinkhole has opened up here on September 26, 2015, swallowing a caravan and car. Good idea to check with authorities before travelling to this campsite. Please add comment if you have further information.
Mostly shaded, great place out of season; much of the area is soft sand and not suited to all rigs. Camping is permitted in areas outside the marked campsites, unless specifically prohibitted. Furthest area (north) is a preparation spot for crossing to Fraser on the ferry and can be bit noisy.
