Crystal Springs is an ‘open’ campground (without separated individual camp sites) that can accommodate tents, small campervans and camper trailers. Caravans and larger campervans are not permitted.
There are toilets, picnic tables and wood barbecues.
Campfires are usually permitted, in the provided fire rings only, between April 15 and November 30 but fire restrictions may be imposed at any time and without notice.
When fire restrictions are in place campfires must not be lit and any appliance powered by burning solid fuel must not be used. Always comply with any instructions at campgrounds and parks.
Campers´ own liquid or gas fuel barbeques, stoves and heaters can be used at any time, unless a total fire ban has been declared (see Department of Fire and Emergency Services ).
Bookings cannot be made. Go to ´Find available sites at other campgrounds´ for the latest information on availability. We cannot give any guarantee of availability of camp sites and we cannot respond to enquiries for specific availability information. Be prepared with an alternative place to stay in case there is no suitable site available.
Park entry fees apply apply to D’Entrecasteaux National Park.
Crystal Springs offers a convenient base to explore some of the coastal sites within the western part of Walpole-Nornalup and eastern part of D’Entrecasteaux national parks. There are a number of scenic areas to stop for a coastal picnic or explore the coast.
The Long Point four-wheel drive track leads to a number of coastal sites including Long Point, Little Long Point and Hush Hush. Some parts of the track are very soft and you will need to reduce your tyre pressure.
Heading east along Mandalay Beach Road, visitors can follow a four-wheel drive track to Banksia Camp or for a longer adventure can head out to the mouth of the Broke Inlet along Fisherman’s Track. Please note that Fisherman’s Track is seasonally closed between June and December due to inundation.
Visitors can enjoy fishing in both national parks. Mandalay Beach can be accessed via Mandalay Beach Road which is suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles. Other sites in both parks are accessible by four-wheel drive only. Please take great care when fishing from rocks or cliffs. Large waves can suddenly appear and wash over rocks. Check tide predictions and weather warnings with the Bureau of Meteorology. Also follow the safety advice of RecFish West and comply with Department of Fisheries regulations.
