The only facilities at the Little Muselroe Bay campground are pit toilets. You will need to carry your own firewood and fresh drinking water. There are no rubbish bins, so remove all rubbish and leave no trace. The Little Musselroe Bay camping area offers a number of open sites, and also some with shelter. There is a boat ramp located close by, and you can engage in a number of different water-based activities, including fishing, and also take long walks on beautiful beaches. This is a beautiful bay with views to the Furneaux Islands and an abundance of birdlife and native wildlife. To access, drive on Cape Portland Rd, some 27 km north of Gladstone, and then 200 m into the sheltered bayside camping area. The best time to camp is between Christmas and Easter. Please note there are a few private shacks in the area, where camping is strictly not allowed. The road to Little Musselroe Bay is narrow and can be difficult to access following heavy rains.

The Little Musselroe Bay campsite is set in a long coastal reserve that stretches from Little Musselroe Bay, south-east along Great Musselroe Bay, to Poole at the northern edge of Mt William National Park. The spectacular coastline of deserted white-sand beaches, crystal blue waters and windswept headlands, features sheltered lagoons and estuaries. The skyline is dominated by the massive wind turbines located at Cape Portland. See also: Deep Creek Campground: Camping Stumpys Bay Number 1: Camping Stumpys Bay Number 2: Camping Stumpys Bay Number 3: Camping Stumpys 4: Camping Top Camp Mt William: Camping Petal Point: Camping Little Musselroe Bay: Camping Musselroe Bay:
