Peaceful Bay Caravan Park and Elephant Rocks With Kids!

February 10, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Peaceful Bay is a beautiful little bay with a nice swimming beach and beautiful views from the rocks.  It is close to Denmark, which we did not have much time to explore, and the Greens Pool/Elephant Rocks which we did manage to visit.  There is a caravan park close to the beach with nice facilities, a general store for necessities, a coffee shop, and a fish and chips restaurant!  Pretty nice set up! 

The Peaceful Bay Caravan Park is located a quick walk from the beach entrance, but you must exit through the front to leave the caravan park (even on foot).  Thus, if you are located far from the entrance (and it is quite a large park), then you may end up walking quite a way to get to the beach.  This may not matter to you if you don't have little kids in tow who will want to be carried.  In this case, you might enjoy being in the back where there would be less caravan park traffic.  The roads are red dirt and do kick up a lot of dust. 

Our first night at the park we got a spot in the back, and as we DO have young children who can't walk too far while remaining blissfully happy, it was not all we'd dreamed the experience would be.  The second day I popped into the office after our trip to Elephant Rocks and asked the lovely receptionist if there was a spot closer to the entrance we could move to for the night.  They put us right up near the front, the nicer bathrooms, the kitchen, and I even managed to get a little wifi access from the office here!  

We were in heaven! 

The camp kitchen only has two grills, which is not near enough for such a high capacity park.  If you want to cook, be sure and get to the grill early! 


Elephant Rocks was so amazing.  I think it was our favorite beach day the whole trip.  We didn't actually play in the sand.  Instead we all climbed over the rocks and boulders to see what we could see.  It felt like an adventurous thing to do with four kids including a 3 and 5 year old.  The views were incredible. 

We stopped at the Denmark Good Food Factory on the way out of town and enjoyed the burgers, the salads, the shop, the cider, and the playground!  There was ice cream too, but we'd already had some incredibly yummy and cool honey ice cream at Bartholomew's Meadery (cutting loose there with dessert before lunch!)

We didn't get a chance to try the fish and chips at Peaceful Bay Caravan Park during this visit, but I know it's very popular!  Make sure you order early before they sell out!
