Online bookings are essential for camping at Cape Le Grand National Park.

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. With recent investment to improve 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! Since 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!

When can I make a booking?

Up to 180 days (approximately six months) before arrival right up until the time of arrival, subject to availability.

Can I arrive at the park without a booking?

From 1 November 2018 you may not camp without a booking. WiFi will be provided at the park for making a booking on your own mobile device, but campsites are in extremely high demand from December to April, and it is unlikely there will be any vacancies when you arrive. To avoid disappointment book before travelling to the park.

How long can I stay?

Up to 14 nights if any night is during WA public school holidays, 28 nights at other times.

Can I book more than one site?

Not for the same nights. One site per booking, and bookings must be in the name of a person who will camp on that site. If you are organising an education group excursion, contact Parks and Wildlife Esperance: click on the link in the pages for Cape Le Grand campgrounds.
