Please forward information re sites for Camper Trailers at Cape Leveque. I am led to believe there are sites above the beach. Would that be correct and do they need to be booked?
Thank you!

Camping at Cape Leveque
by: Birgit

Hi Rob,

Are you looking for special sites specifically for off road trailers? Right on the beach?

You could rent a beach shelter and set up your trailer next to that if you want to camp right on the beach. (That would be "Swimming Beach" on the eastern side.)

Otherwise there is the normal campground at the top with powered and unpowered sites, towards the other side of the cape. It's also above the beach, the western beach, but it has no beach view. There is a picnic area overlooking the beach just across from the campground, and it's a short walk or drive down to the beach.

It's a narrow cape. Everything there is above the beach :-).

Definitely book everything. They fill up very quickly.

Kooljaman Camping Cape Leveque
by: Helen

I just arrived at camping area. Had we known that the best spot to camp was down on the Eastern Beach we would have booked earlier when planning our trip. Although the view at sunset was beautiful from the top campground, if you are looking for peace and quiet that comes with bush camping than I suggest this is not ideal. Unfortunately we had to deal with the neighbor’s music. The other downside was the hot walk down to the beach for a swim, by the time you walked back up a cold shower was needed to cool down. This is a beautiful spot so the best way to experience this is book one of the camping shacks on the beach or one of the many cabins dotted throughout the property.

gumbarnan camping at cape leveque
by: Anonymous

if anyone is looking for a peaceful, great alternative just 15mins up the road from kooljaman is Gumbarnan Campground.Camping is overlooking the water, has spotlessly clean amenities, campfires, great fishing from a tinny or the rocks, is pet friendly, good drinking water, shady sites if req and has caretakers onsite. Do yourself a favour and camp at Gumbarnan as you will not be disappointed.

Gumbarnan bush camp
by: Jane

We travelled to Cape Leveque region and camped at Gumbarnan bush camp. It's just a couple of easy kms off the bitumen, MUCH easier than Middle Lagoon and Kooljaman. The camp area is spacious and shady, toilets and showers and has views to the east and west so you see sun rise, moonrise and sunset. The elders from One Arm Point come in for story telling and invite you to the beach huts at One Arm Point. There is a fantastic fish trap that has coral and clown fish. A day trip to One Arm Point a couple of kms down the road is fantastic, get a pass at the shop and head to the Hatchery where there are aquariums and it's interactive. Then a swim at around rock- spectacular and hang at middle beach where the boats come on and the locals bring in their catch, and are happy to have a yarn.
We day tripped also to Middle Lagoon, seems a great spot to fishing and has two lovely bays. A half to one hour drive on sand/dirt. You must check Whale Song, a very small camp area and cafe, heaven!
