Another option of accommodation in the Agulhas Rest camp is Lagoon House. This house was built in 1898 by the Albertyn family of the Zeekoeivlei farm. Before that the local farmers usually came to this specific spot for Christmas camping holidays. Think ox or horse-drawn wagons through thick sand. Mrs Albertyn at the time dearly loved this spot and her husband decided to buy a few hectares and to build a house for her as an anniversary present. She was busy reading Blue Lagoon and since this area looked like a scene from the book, she decided to call it The Lagoon. Nearer to the sea and beach you will never find again. Sleeps 8, 4 rooms of which 2 is en-suite. The anglers of the area call it Pietie se Huis or Pietie se Punt, Pietie being Mr Albertyn.

Is Rietfontein open to the public yet? I find no links to it on the booking page.

Hi Johndutoit,

Agulhas is quite a big park.

Exactly where do you want to go fishing??

You can fish in the park and you don't need a wild card.There are a lot of fishing spots from the Lighthouse towards Suiderstrand and accessible with your vehicle.From Suiderstrand onwards you have to walk. :redface:
