Part of Potters Gorge is open to camping following redevelopment Potters Gorge as part of the Parks for People caravan and camping initiative.
Potters Gorge campground is under the shade of jarrah and marri forest on the shores of Wellington Dam. It is an `open` campground without separate individual camp sites, so is suited for small groups camping together. It can accommodate ten large campervans, camper trailers, caravans or tents.
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. Bring your own firewood. 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.
The campground is very popular during school holidays and weekends from October to April, particularly public holiday weekends. Be prepared with an alternative place to stay at these times in case the campground is full.
We cannot give any guarantee of availability of camp sites and we cannot respond to enquiries for specific availability information. Go to `when and where bookings cannot be made` for more information.
