Explore wild spaces at two campgrounds north of Perth.

Karda campground

Maybe you're taking a road trip to the check out the new Kalbarri Skywalk, perhaps you’re on your way home from exploring the stunning Ningaloo Coast or possibly you just want a night out under the stars away from the city! Well, here are two campgrounds where you can stop in for a night or two or three.

Right next to Lesueur National Park, Karda campground has 31 campsites suitable for all camping equipment. The roads to the campground are unsealed but accessible for two-wheel drive vehicles.

It’s the perfect spot to explore Lesueur National Park. In springtime you can marvel at the colour and variety of wildflowers and on clear night skies turn your gaze upwards for a fabulous view of the stars. The campsites have picnic tables and fire rings (used in the permitted season only) available. One area of the campground allows generators and the other is a quiet area, so book your campsite carefully.

Wanagarren campground

Do you have a four-wheel drive vehicle, a tent and want to wake up to the sounds of the ocean? Then Wanagarren Nature Reserve has the campground for you!

Wanagarren campground is right next to Jurien Bay Marine Park, so close that you’ll hear waves lapping the shore from your sleeping bag.

The campsites are only suitable for campers who are completely self-sufficient and have a high-clearance 4WD with low-range gears. You’ll also need to reduce your tyre pressure and be able to reinflate them when you leave.

There are no facilities available so to camp here you must have a portable chemical cassette toilet. Rangers patrol the area and if you do not have one, you will have to leave and buy one.

Campsites vary in surface and size so be sure to check out the campsites before booking online.
