The Margaret River region is well-known for its winemaking.
Campers also love the region for its calm and secluded camping sites, which are much more enjoyable than other busy and over-crowded camping sites.
Some campsites in Margaret River are located in the Karri forest and Jarrah areas and along the river banks as well.
Most of the camping sites in this region are off the known paths but are still well-placed for campers to explore the best attractions in the region.
Campers can also access the various basic facilities such as eco-toilets and gas barbeques.
Although campers miss out on hot showers and power, they get up-close with wildlife and nature for free or at a small fee.
