These three resorts are situated in the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park, and is the springboard for exploring the wonders of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. Activities include fishing, boating and game viewing, as well as self-guided trails and guided boat tours along the edge of the estuary.

These three camp and caravan resorts are situated at St Lucia Estuary and provide a springboard for exploring the wonders of The Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. St Lucia Estuary is one of the tourism focal points of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, a recently declared World Heritage Site.

 The Park comprises a number of conservation areas, the oldest of which is the St Lucia Game Reserve, established in 1895. 

St Lucia Estuary is the gateway to the Eastern Shores of Lake St Lucia. The region contains the highest vegetated dunes in the world, extensive and diverse wetland systems, as well as coastal grasslands with an associated fauna which includes the Africa's highest density of common reedbuck. Numerous waterfowl, grassland, forest and sea birds provide an attraction to birdwatchers from around the world. 

Tourist amenities include fishing , the Santa Lucia boat tour, the St Lucia Crocodile Centre, and a short self-guided trail through the coastal forest along the edge of the estuary. Caution is necessary when surfing or swimming in the sea as there are no shark nets. Swimming in the lake is prohibited due the presence of crocodiles. Malaria precautions are necessary. Accommodation is provided at St Lucia Estuary in three camping and caravanning grounds. 

This probably has the best position in St. Lucia. It is situated on the bank of the St. Lucia Estuary within walking distance of the estuary mouth and the beach. This makes for an ideal spot for any fisherman for both estuary and surf fishing. This is also an ideal area for keen birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts as the estuary habitat has many bird and animal species. 

The campsite consists of 92 large and shady sites all containing electric plug points. Four well maintained ablution facilities serve these sites. A large swimming pool is concealed amongst the trees providing an excellent sheltered picnic facility for those windy days. Apart from the swimming pool, children also have access to a jungle gym where new friends can be made. The campsite has a 24 hour entrance gate control to ensure the safety of your belongings whilst you are out exploring the area. 

Eden Park.
This is a much smaller campsite which makes it very special for the person who wants to get away from the masses. This campsite is situated within a little forest with the four kilometre Gwalagwala hiking trail meandering around the campsite. The trail derived its name from the Purple Crested Lourie which is found within this forest and is one of 63 bird species recorded here. This campsite has twenty shady sites equipped with electricity.
