A trip out yonder just ain’t the same without our four-legged friends, which is why we’ve found the best dog-friendly camping spots across WA. (Cue “Who Let The Dogs Out”!)
Herron Point (Peel)
Located just south of the crabbing mecca that is Mandurah, Herron Point Campground in Birchmont has toilets, a camp kitchen, barbecues and more. Located within the Kooljerrenup Nature Reserve, it’s a great fishing and crabbing spot, along with plenty of great bushwalks and bird spotting. Doggos are welcome but must stay on the lead.
Lake Navarino (Waroona)
Lake Navarino near Waroona used to have camping facilities in the bush and by the water, but now camping is limited only to the Lake Navarino Holiday Park. No matter though as it’s still a beaut spot to pitch a tent, nestled in the jarrah forests between Waroona and Dwellingup. There’s a whole heap of activities to do in the area, which – along with its proximity to Perth – is why it remains one of the most popular camping locations in the state. At the time of publishing Lake Navarino Holiday Park was closed, so make sure you check ahead before booking.
Stockton Lake (Collie)
Stockton Lake is where to go if you want to camp by a lake in Collie – although it is on a first-come, first-served basis. Originally an open cut mine, it’s popular for water skiing and boating, and while swimming is permitted, be aware the water is mildly acidic and can cause harm to those with sensitive skin. Doggos are welcome but must stay on the lead.
Marrinup Townsite Campground (Holyoake)
Marrinup campsite is a simple one, set up on open grassed where the old Marrinup townsite used to be about 5km northwest of Dwellingup. It’s a popular spot for mountain bike riders as the Marrinup walk and cycle trail can be found here, along with the popular Munda Biddi trail. Doggos are welcome but must stay on the lead.
