Awesome it looks like the Jetty Campground is full for next year. There are still spaces at Doran Beach, just not in the Jetty Campground.

I just booked a walk-in tent site for the nights of the 26th and 27th. There are still a couple of tent sites left and more sites at the campgrounds on the other side of the CG station.
