Yellowwood Forest Campsite in Morgan Bay is a unique camping paradise on the Eastern Cape's Wild Coast. Enjoy camping in our peaceful forested campground on the banks of the Inchara River, or in our rustic self-catering accommodation, surrounded by enormous trees and lush riverine vegetation.

Yellowwood Forest Campsite is a tranquil Garden of Eden offering unique Morgan Bay accommodation. Camp, caravan or stay in a thatched loft or rustic bush camp accommodation. This riverside campground, under huge forest trees, is a bird watcher's paradise offering safe, sheltered camping for nature lovers and school groups.

For campers there are a variety of shady sites, all with grass. There's the main camping area with lush lawns and enormous trees. These sites all receive full morning sun and welcome shade in the afternoon. Some are close to the play area for folk with little ones. The camping sites further away offer peace and quiet and Acacia Karoo thorn trees give a bushveld feel with lots of shade.

The ablutions are centrally situated. These hobbit-like rock and thatch facilities with their mud walls and recycled glass detail are an experience in themselves. They're well cared for and cleaned daily. There are four flushing loos, three showers, a bath and hand basins each in their own private cubical. There are also three basins with hot water for dishes and laundry.

Yellowwood Forest is a nature lovers paradise, with only 30 level sites, each offering something different. We pride ourselves in giving campers a guided tour on arrival and a choice of at least 3 sites (Even at year end, when we're full). There are more sites available than we allow people, so you get to choose where to nest for the duration of your stay. There are never more than a handful of caravaners at any one time and we like to place them away from the waters edge, with tents and trailers closer.

If you're not up for erecting a tent there is a rustic bush camp on the rivers edge, up against the forest, which sleeps 4 and a small loft above the gift shop perfect for a couple and offering a birds eye view of the trees. We also offer 'tentless' camping where we'll put up one for you. Just arrive.

Wireless Internet & pre-paid vouchers available. Bring your wireless enabled laptop with you.
Electrical points are placed throughout, though not at each site or along the river.
The campground is only 1 km from the Morgan Bay beach.
We sell fire wood in full or half bags.

Come and see for yourself, you won't want to leave. It's not a campsite for everyone but maybe it's the one for you.
