With Australia's whitest beaches and some of the country's most spectacular coastal scenery, it's no surprise that campsites at Lucky Bay and Le Grand Beach are in extremely high demand, particularly for summer. And with recent investment in improved visitor facilities in the park, that demand is only likely to increase.
Many are those who have set off on the long journey to Cape Le Grand National Park, 50km south east of Esperance, car packed full and hopes stacked high, only to be dejected by the sight of the dreaded 'campgrounds full' sign as they near their destination.
But no more! For camping from 1 November 2018 all campsites in the national park must be booked online.
So now you can reserve your campsite before you leave home. Make it the first thing on the 'to do' list for your south coast trip. Arriving with your booking, you'll probably still see that 'campgrounds full' sign (from December to April, at least), but you can drive on by, secure in the knowledge that you will be one of the people filling the campgrounds!
