Beach Camping

Sandy Cape

The Sandy Cape Recreation Park is a Shire campground and recreation area in Jurien Bay.

Access to this beautiful, idyllic campground is via a well sign-posted sealed 2WD road 10 km north of the Jurien Bay townsite.

The Park is popular with campers and day visitors for its protected, white sandy beaches, perfect for swimming, snorkelling, fishing, and sandboarding the dunes.

Sandy Cape has 88 dedicated campsites suitable for individual campers and large caravans with additional sites available for self-contained visitors with high clearance 4WDs. The additional sites are located north and south of the main campground.

Gas BBQs, flushing toilets and (cold) showers are available in the southern section and long-drop toilets are available at the northern end. There is no power on-site and campers will need their own water.

Campfires are subject to a restricted burning period – please check on restrictions prior to travel.

Pets are welcome but will need to be on a lead in the campground.

Currently there is no booking system for staying at Sandy Cape. The sites operate on a ‘first-in, first-served’ basis with a maximum stay of 4 nights.

Camping fees apply and can be paid at the honour box in the information bay along the entry road or to the caretakers on-site.
