Located at the southern tip of the Otway National Park, Parker Hill is located just a fifteen minute drive from the small town of Horden Vale. Parker Hil offers all the benefits of a camping ground on the coast, including swimming, fishing and surfing.
The Parker Hill camping ground is reasonably easy to find as it is well signed, but a little difficult to get to. The turnoff to the camping ground is located approximately 20km from the Great Ocean Road. The road to the turnoff is a part sealed, part gravel road but gets plenty of use so is in good condition. Once you hit the turnoff the gravel road turns pretty average and is not recommended for caravans. Do not access this road after heavy rains as it is likely to be very difficult to drive on.
The camping ground offers around twenty individual campsites. All the campsites are very similar but the best spot is to the right as you come in.
Given the location of the Parker Hill campground, it offers numerous activities. Activities available for
campers include fishing, swimming and surfing in the ocean. There is no ability to launch watercraft from the campground as the only access to the beach is down a 50m narrow track. The Great Ocean Road walked also links up with Parker Hill.
Best Time To Go
Given the campground is located near the beach, it is recommended that the campground is visited during the warmer months.
