19+ Best Margaret River Caravan Parks (Locals Guide 2024)

Are you looking for the best Margaret River Caravan Park?

There is a caravan park in the Margaret River Region to suit you! Catering for everything from self-contained grey nomads to families and school groups there are numerous fantastic parks for you to choose from.

This type of accommodation is a wonderful way to strike the balance between comfortable facilities and enjoying nature and wide open spaces. My favourite parks offer comfortable amenities, playgrounds and cooking facilities. This style of accommodation is very popular, especially in school holidays. I recommend you book early here.

And why should you trust me? Well, since 2016, I have owned an accommodation business in Margaret River, and during my spare time my family and I travel around Western Australia, and we have stayed in our fair share of caravan parks across this great state. With this experience in mind, I want to share with you my 19 favourite caravan parks that are perfect for a Margaret River getaway.

There are two styles of caravan parks in Margaret River. Firstly, there are the Holiday Parks, who offer caravan and camping spaces and a whole host of facilities for their guests. And secondly, there are the Department of Parks and Wildlife style campgrounds, which provide basic facilities for well-prepared campers and caravanners looking to sleep under the stars and wake up to bird songs in natural bushland.

With this in mind, I have split the list into the two separate styles, and I have only included Margaret River Caravan spots within a short drive of Margaret River. Of course, I’ve only listed a place if you can definitely fit your caravan there too!

🏆Don’t have time to read the whole post? Never fear! Here are my top 3 recommendations for best Margaret River Caravan Parks!🏆

Australia Travel Planning Guide

🚑Should I buy Australian travel insurance?

100% YES! — Australia has “free” healthcare but it’s only for citizens and permanent residents. Foreigners visiting need travel insurance in case anything happens on their visit. I like SafetyWing – their Nomad Insurance starts at just $1.50 USD a day!

🚗Should I rent a car in Australia?

Yes — Renting a car is a necessity in most of Australia! If you want to go on road trips or adventures outside of the major cities, and even if you’re staying in a major city, you’ll want to rent a car. If you are visiting Margaret River, it will be even more important that you hire a car, you’ll need it to be able to get around and see all the great attractions and wineries!

🏨What’s the best way to book my Australian accommodation?

My go-to for Australian hotels is Booking.com. Pretty much all registered accommodation use Booking.com (but not necessarily any of the other major booking platforms), and even most of the holiday homes and caravan parks use Booking.com too!

If you’re planning a trip to Australia where you will stay at multiple locations, it’s super handy to have all your accommodation listed in one place, and accommodation owners like Booking.com because it’s easy to contact the guests using the messaging platform if the guest has an international phone number.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to Margaret River!
