Four Mile Campground - Fitzgerald River National Park, WA
Updated: Mar 30
Four Mile Campground is in the Fitzgerald River National Park, which is one of Australia's largest national parks at 329,882 hectares, and is home to nearly 20% of Western Australia's flora species.
We think that the Four Mile Campground is one of the best we stayed in along the south coast of WA!
Bookings are essential, and they book out quickly - we were only able to stay for 2 nights over the summer and we were told that we were lucky to get that!
The cost is $15 per night for an adult and $3 for a child. National park entry fees apply as well. You are not able to reserve a particular site, just turn up and pick from what’s available. You can book here: https://exploreparks.dbca.wa.gov.au/site/four-mile-campground
There are 15 sites and they are surrounded on three sides by trees, meaning they are nice, private and out of the wind. The road to the campground is fully sealed, suitable for all vehicles.
The facilities are the best we’ve seen at any national park campground in Australia! They have clean, well ventilated drop toilets and even a hot shower - such a luxury!
There is a big sheltered camp kitchen, with gas BBQs and stoves, picnic tables and sinks.
From the camp it is an easy 200m walk to the beautiful Four Mile Beach, where you can swim, fish and snorkel.
Being a national park, there are no dogs or generators allowed, and unfortunately you are not able to have a campfire.
The campground is less than 10km to Hopetoun, which is a great little town!
As we are working from the road and there was no reception at the campground, we drove to Hopetoun library, where we were able to use their free wifi and the kids were kept busy with their great kids library.
Hopetoun is great for picking up supplies as it has an IGA, cafes, a bakery, a chemist, petrol and a post office.
We loved our stay at Four Mile Campground and would have loved to have stayed longer - we will be back for sure!
