I have only visited for a day, mainly to investigate the facilities. My wife and I found everything very promising. We intend to camp there in the near future. This park includes one of the state's largest coastal lake systems - a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance - as well as 40 km of beaches, giant sand dunes and areas of forest catchment. The Grandis, a 76-m-high flooded gum, is one of the tallest trees in the state. Visit the historic lighthouse at Sugarloaf Point, Seal Rocks.
The lakes and beaches are perfect for all types of water activities-and if you don't have your own craft you can hire one locally. There's lakeside and forest picnic and camping areas with car-based and caravan camping at Stewart and Lloyds, Banksia Green, Mungo Brush, Dees Corner, White Tree Bay, The Wells, Boomeri {tents only}, Korsmans Landing, Bungary Bay, Violet Hill, Neranie and Yagon. Remote boat-based camping is available in designated areas around the lakes. Bookings are not required for camping. Most areas offer basic facilities, but bring your own drinking water and firewood (check locations where fires are permitted).
