Swan Lake Campground

Discovery Bay Coastal Park Camping


Experience the vast, mobile sand dunes a short distance from the campground. Walk along the track towards the beach and marvel at the immense height and sheer walls of the dunes.

Set amongst a significant coastal dune system, Swan Lake is a small campground with five campsites that can accommodate a maximum of six people at each site.

While the gravel road is well maintained and accessible to 2WDs, there is a steep descent into the campground. Visitors towing a caravan will need a 4WD vehicle. The road from Swan Lake campground to the beach is 4WD only.

The campground is also accessible to hikers along the Great South West Walk.

Campfires are only allowed in the designated fireplaces and you need to supply your own firewood - firewood collection is prohibited.

Bore water is available but is not suitable for drinking - supply your own.
