Most main camping sites can be booked online at ParkStay– Parks & Wildlife however some can only be booked at the park entrance with the Ranger so it is first in first served.

Steep Point (near Denham)
Steep Point by Denham is roughly an 11 hour drive North from Perth. This is a remote site in the Gascoyne Region and is Australia’s most Westerly point. It is for the rugged-loving campers with some dangerous terrain, wind and waves. Access for high-clearance 4WD vehicles with low-range gears only.
Facilities: Drop toilet only.
Yardie Creek (near Exmouth)
Yardie Creek campground is a 14 hour drive North of Perth. It is located in such a fantastic spot by the beach at the mouth of Yardie Creek on the Ningaloo Coast and ‘up the road’ from Turquoise Bay, Oyster Stacks and Sandy Bay. The campground only has 10 campsites that book out fast. Take your paddle board up Yardie Creek and look out for rock wallabies.
Facilities: Pool, tennis court, cafe as well as activities for the kids in the afternoons and live music at night during school holidays, but it books out well in advance so be sure to plan ahead and book.
Contos Beach (Margaret River)
Beachfront campground near Margaret River has 116 sites for tents, caravans and camper trailers in amongst the peppermint trees. Stroll down to the beautiful Contos Beach for a swim, surf or fish or take a section of the Cape to Cape track to Redgate Beach, which is around 6km’s away.
Jorndee Creek is 10 hours South East of Perth and is a remote camping spot perfect for fishing and a refreshing swim at the river mouth of Jorndee Creek and the Indian Ocean. There are only 9 camping spots for just tents and small camper trailers and you can’t book so first come first served and it’s recommended you take a 4WD to get there.
Facilities: Drop toilet
For an oasis stop during your long drive back from up North a beautiful spot to stop is Wooramel Riverside Retreat Campground, 120kms south of Carnarvon, 2 kms off the North West Coastal Highway.
A unique station campground nestled under the majestic gum trees on the banks of the Wooramel River. Relax in the naturally heated therapeutic artesian bore baths, enjoy the space, abundant bird and wildlife and cabin, eco tent or campsite accommodation.
There are numerous campgrounds with quite a few campsites throughout WA that can not be booked online but are beautiful spots, so it’s usually first in, first served for a lot of them, so have some nearby back up options on hand.
