The Noosa North Shore Beach Campground is located on the north shore of the Noosa River in a superb location right on the beach and surrounded by National Park.
The campground has basic amenities and is ideally suited to the more self-sufficient camper.
The site is a popular with campers who love to get away from it all and enjoy fishing, surfing, bushwalking, beach walking or 4 wheel driving. Vehicle access to the beach is available a few hundred metres north of the campground, providing a spectacular drive up the beach to Double Island Point, and across to Fraser Island.

- Each booking allows for a maximum of 1 vehicle per booking.
- Pets are not allowed, as we are in a national park, and wildlife listed above dont like it.

- The beach is not patrolled by lifesavers but there is an emergency beacon.
- Fires are not allowed at any time. Gas appliances can be used for cooking or heating.
Stay at one of our other "Absolute Waterfront" parks!
It's quite a scenic campsite. The beach is very close to the camping area and it's wonderful. There will be some wallabies and kangaroos in the early mornings too. To get there you'll be taking a very short ferry ride, and when you get there you'll see that there are a lot of things you can do around the area since there's a retreat/recreation place there.
Family Camping at its best Noosa North Shore has been a long time family favourite. The location is perfect for access to the beach for swimming and fishing. Added to that for those with a 4WD it is a great starting point for driving to rainbow beach. The facilities are basic, shower and toilets with a small reception shop. If you are wanting to get away and love to camp this will suit you. Campsites are not an allocated small square of a caravan park but rather open spaces to pick and choose what suits you. We go every year and have never been disappointed!
Unwinding and relaxing to the max... We had four nights camping in the unpowered section. The people looking after the park were a great help and very friendly. The showers are coin operated. Ensure you bring enough water for your stay as there is very limited access. There is a dump site in the gate to assist with those who are using your own toilets etc. A great place to base visits to the the beaches and 4WD tracks in the Nat Park or as in our case, whale watching up Teewah beach.
We have been camping here for 12 years straight-three to four times a year and loved it each time. The managers are the kindest, most welcoming and best at their job!! Each time, it feels like we are visiting a family member at the beautiful Sunshine State � It is a family friendly place and the wildlife is just as friendly �
We have been going to North Shore Beachfront Camp ground for the past 10 years. We love being on the beach front and all the wild life is a bonus. Having the surf life guards patrol the beach is also another bonus. With no cars being allowed on the beach makes the place a safe environment for families with children. I give it top marks as my favorite beach holiday destination
