Camping has now closed
Dear Campers, it is with considerable regret that we now find ourselves in a position where we must close all our campgrounds from Monday the 23rd of March to protect the health and safety of visitors and staff.
We have tried over the past weeks to hold off closing until after the Easter Holiday, however we now believe that it is the safest and most socially responsible thing to do.
We will be issuing full refunds for any bookings affected by this decision.
I would like to express my sincerest apologies for the impact that this will have, I know many of our campers personally and appreciate that camping at Leo is a chance for some rest and respite from the craziness that happens back in your everyday lives. Please understand that this decision has not been made lightly and deliberations have been ongoing for more than two weeks now. We have tried to implement different strategies to counter the risk however these have proved ineffective and we as a committee now feel that this is the right action to take to play our part in the protection of not only each of you, but our staff and the broader communities that we all live in.
The reserve is now closed for new bookings until after the 18th of September. We hope to be able to open earlier, watch this this space.
Point Leo has over 168 camping sites, of which only 45 are powered. The majority of our campsites are open year round, including sites 1 to 11 on the waters edge, powered sites 12 to 56 and all the non powered sites 101 to 249 in the eastern section up towards the surfing areas.
Bookings can now be made online for any night outside of the Summer and Easter school holiday periods, and the Melbourne Cup and March public holiday long weekends
Please use a desktop computer if you would like the option to select your site from a camp site map.

If you book a site that is too small for your set up we are unable to guarantee you a site
We will make every attempt to to ensure that the site you choose is the site you get to camp on, however sometimes due to circumstances outside our control we need to change the site that you are booked onto. If this happens we will make every attempt in the time remaining to notify you of the change before you arrive.
