Right in the heart of the Bush on the Margaret River, this place is spectacular. Only 9 unpowered sites with own tables and fire pits, makes this the perfect off grid camp trip. The amenities are simple, with Drop toilets only. At $9 per person. This place is just beautiful.

Try to visit this place when not too crowded. Neat and tidy. A perfect West Aussie bush retreat. Take a kayak if you can.
Andreas Koepke
Great campground and a good base for exploring Busselton and the Margaret River region. There are 9 camping sites with the toilets located right near the start. There is a large day use area and access to the pool for swimming. Across the road from the main campground entry is a firm sandy track which goes to the overflow camping area. This is a large clearing with several sites around the outside. Would be good for a group who want to camp together. No toilets located at the overflow area but the main campground is only a 5 minute walk.

Very clean & small campsite. Very private & quiet during the week days!
Kyle Downie
Great scenic camping spot along the edge of the river, surrounded by bushland with about a dozen or more Camp-sites available. The cost is a small fee of around $8 pp, on sight there are drop toilets and fire pits which may be used depending on the season.. Few sights are more private than others as they have a little more bushland, during the winter you can often find a site easily but in the warmer months it's often harder to find a site. Animals are welcome as long as their kept on a leash as a precaution as 1080 poisons baits are used sometimes nearby.
