Illaroo Camp - Yuraygir National Park NSW
Illaroo Campground is located on the track from Sandon Road in the Yuraugir National Park. To get there you must take the Wooli Road and Minnie Water Road or, alternatively, plan your trip using your GPS.
The campsite can get busy in holiday periods but is quiet at other times of the year. Shop, petrol and fresh water can be obtained about 1.5km from the campsite.
There are nice views of the sea and plenty of native trees and animals. Many nice walks are available. You need to pay via a coin machine so make sure you have sufficient change to cover your fees.
There are approximately 60 sites for campers. You cannot book in advance so must take your chances in busy times.

Stayed here Sept 2015. Nice camp. There are 2 camp areas north and south. We had a great position with beach views. Quiet and no phone reception.
We stayed at Illaroo camping ground the weekend after the January long weekend in 2013. Anyway, we had our own bum show provided by some old fart of a camper left over from the 60s. We reported it to the National Park ranger. He rushed out to tell the guy to 'cover up' and ordered him to leave the next day. This desperate fart even propositioned my wife. She turned him down... thank goodness. Anyway, I got a photo of him when I came out of the smelly pit toilets. I turned him down as well! Please feel free to use this photo but (the operative word is BUT) ONLY if you fuzz out his arse and his numberplate. It isn't a good picture as I only had my mobile phone on me at the time (don't know why as I didn't have any reception). I also didn't have my reading glasses on so it is a totally amazing fluke that I even got the picture! Generally I believe that caravan parks are safer places to stay than other camping grounds. At least you have a manager that can look after you.
