Just imagine enjoying the picture-perfect view at your campsite under the stars. Pilbara has no shortage of Instagram worthy spots that will keep you coming back for more. We’re sure you’ll start planning your camping trip right away after finishing this post – itching to take in what nature has to offer. So, without further delay, here are three of the most beautiful campsites in Pilbara that you can visit. 

Three Must-Visit Campsites in Pilbara 

  1. Dales Campground at the Karijini National Park  

First up is Dales Campground at the Karijini National Park. It is one of the two campsites where you can stay overnight in the National Park. In case you are wondering what facilities are available at the Dales Campground, basic ones are provided such as the small kiosk that you can visit (but don’t expect much), bush toilets, picnic tables, and barbeque sites. 

What we love about the Dales Campground is that the sites are big and the facilities are well maintained. Another benefit of staying at the campsite is it is near Dales Gorge, the Fortescue Falls, Fern Pool and Circular Pool. People who have stayed at the campsite shared that they can’t wait to come back again. 

What is the cost per night at the Dales Campground? 

$11 per night for adults and $3 per night for kids 

  1. Osprey Bay Campground at the Cape Range National Park 

Halfway between Exmouth and Learmonth, you will find a pretty little campground not far from a sandy beach. With a lovely ocean view and native bushland at your back, you have the best of both worlds. That is what the Osprey Bay Campground offers. Have your piece of paradise when you book your stay at the Osprey Bay Campground. 

The campsite is located above the rock-shelf shoreline providing you with a slice of paradise with a view of the turquoise waters and the white sand beach. Interesting tidbit, the locals call it “the aquarium” and we definitely agree with the nickname. 

The oceanfront campsite provides facilities such as picnic tables and bush toilets.   

Perfect for fishing, kayaking, and snorkeling.

  1. Kalgan Pool at Newman 

This is a hidden gem when it comes to campsites you can stay at in Pilbara. It’s not shared much online and there’s little buzz, but believe us when we tell you that it’s well worth the trip – and it’s one of the free campsites in Pilbara too. 

The Kalgan Pool Campsite provides a quiet escape where you can enjoy the time under the stars over good food. It is also a popular swimming place but take note that there are no bush toilets there – bringing a porta potty is a must.
