For each campground we have included ‘getting there’ information with a Google map, a brief location description, and its latitude and longitude for use with route planning services and devices (such as Google's Map web service and app, Apple's Maps app and any of the wide range of sat navs or GPS navigators available for hire or purchase). Details of gated campground and park entries are included as well as key waypoints for some more remote campgrounds.
Exercise caution when using route planning services and devices, particularly in remote areas: roads shown may not be passable, existing roads may not be shown and route planning services and devices may not be able to calculate routes. We cannot be responsible for third-party route planning services or devices.
Campers travelling by road should carry a current edition road atlas. Many of these list and show and the location of campgrounds but, again, we are not responsible for the content of these, or any other, print or broadcast publications: visitors must always comply with instructions in parks and on roads.
|Most campgrounds are accessible by 2WD (two-wheel drive) vehicles and SUVs (sports utility vehicles). A small number can be reached entirely by sealed road, but most require at least some driving on unsealed dirt, gravel or sand roads. Campers with rental vehicles, caravans or camper trailers should check if their hire contract permits use on unsealed roads.|
A number of campgrounds are only accessible by 4WD (four-wheel drive) vehicles with high clearance and a low range gearbox. This may mean driving on loose, soft and rutted surfaces; up and down steep gradients; and crossing flowing water.
Drivers need the appropriate skills for these conditions and to be equipped for and capable of vehicle recovery and repair, and for bush and outback survival. Go to 'Travelling in the Remote' on our Explore Parks WA website for further information and resources.
Where we indicate that a campground is only accessible by 4WD vehicles and it is suitable for camper trailers and caravans then any trailer or caravan must also be capable of travelling in the same conditions and it must be compatible and balanced with the towing vehicle. A camper trailer or caravan that is referred to or sold as 'off-road' may not be suitable.
|Access to some campgrounds is not suitable for any caravan or camper trailer.|
There are a number of campgrounds specifically for users of Western Australia's long-distance trails, including the Bibbulmun and Cape to Cape tracks and Munda Biddi Trail. None are accessible by road vehicle and they are not featured on this website. Go to the Explore Parks WA website for more.
Some campgrounds are accessible by water. For more on canoeing/kayaking and boating in parks, go to the Explore Parks WA website.
As part of our commitment to equal access for people with disabilities we provide detailed information about factors affecting access to the Disability Services Commission. That information is available on their 'You're Welcome WA Access WA' website.
