WA, Cape Range National Park, Osprey Bay Campground

Date of Stay: April 2019 Rating: 4.5
This campground is located in one of the most stunning locations we have found, many sites have amazing water views and our rating is mainly based on this wonderful location. All sites are a very short stroll to the beach with great snorkeling not far from the shore in usually quiet inner reef water, turtles are regularly seen just off the shore. All sites are 12m x 7m gravel base and easy to get into, no water or power available, must be booked online in advance. The only facilities are very clean drop toilets. No internet or tv reception. Nearest water filling is in Exmouth, nearest dump points are Yardie Creek and the park visitor centre.
