Stenhouse Bay is located within Innes National Park at the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. This area became part of the National Park in 1975 when the South Australian Government purchased the surrounding land.  

Stenhouse Bay Jetty was built within the bay and used to load Gypsum onto ships when mining operations were carried out in this area.  A ‘V’ shape was cut into the side of the hill to stockpile gypsum ready to be loaded on to the ships - this can be seen in the cliff behind the jetty. The Gypsum hardened and it became a very dangerous job to climb on the pile to loosen the product. The Jetty is now a great fishing spot for visitors.

A walk to the lookout at Stenhouse Bay is about 2 kilometres return from the car parking area with various vantage points along the way with magnificent views.
Stenhouse Bay Campground has large bush sites (unpowered) with a fee of $11 per night.  These sites need to booked online and this can be done at the entrance to the National Park on the computer provided.  Access to these sites is very good and they are suitable for caravans or campervans as well as tents. There are drop toilets near the camping ground but you will need to carry your own water for drinking and showering.  Little Emu Beach is a small beach northeast of Stenhouse Bay near the campground. 

This is definitely one of the places to stop when visiting Innes National Park.
