Camp Grounds

Lucky Bay Campground, Cape Le Grand National Park

Lucky Bay Campground

Lucky Bay Campground is located in one of Australia’s most spectacular locations overlooking the beautiful turquoise waters and incredible white silica sand in Cape Le Grand National Park near Esperance in Western Australia.

Cape Le Grande National Park is 65kms east of the nearby town of Esperance.

Such an amazing location and fantastic campground, you must stay whenever visiting the region.

Site 12 at Lucky Bay Campground
Lucky Bay Campground

Lucky Bay certainly features high on the list of our Best Beaches in Australia!

Go swimming, fishing, snorkelling, surfing or launch your tinnie, the ocean will entice you with it’s pristine beauty.

You can even drive your 4WD down on to the beach and along the sand.

One of the higlights of Lucky Bay are the kangaroos

Lucky Bay Kangaroos

Enjoy the Kangaroos as they make themselves comfortable around your campsite and are very friendly when on the beach.

On the beach there is usually a coffee van, the Lucky Bean, that also sells Ice Creams, snacks and drinks.

Lucky Bay Campground has solar powered showers available although there is not always hot water.

There is no drinking water available at the campground, you will need to bring all your potable water with you for your stay.

Bins are now available although the website still states no bins are in place.

Are Pets Allowed at the Lucky Bay Campground?

No Pets are allowed at Lucky Bay Campground, this is National Park. We left our dog MACKS at Country Lane Kennels on the way to here from Esperance which cost us $22 per day including food.

Costs for dogs to stay vary between $21 to $30 a night, contact Jo on 0488 929 442 to confirm the cost for your pet.

They were fantastic and we can recommend leaving your pet there.

Lucky Bay Campground is in the Cape Le Grand National Park

Campfires in Cape Le Grand National Park are also not allowed.

There is no internet coverage at the campground but Telstra is available near Frenchman Peak.

How to book for Lucky Bay Campground

*Bookings are now available through the WA Government website and are essential prior to arriving.

Remember you will also require a Western Australia Parks Pass to enter the Cape Le Grand National Park.

An annual National Parks Pass will cost $120, or $75 if you have a concession. You can also purchase a Holiday Pass for 5 days for $25, 14 days for $40 or for 4 weeks for $60.

Aim for site number 12 where we stayed at the Lucky Bay Campground, it has outstanding views.

5 Essentials – Camping Accessories

A good Tent or Swag is the first decision for going camping. We like the Coleman Tent from Tentworld or the Wanderer 7 Man Tent from BCF. For a Swag, we were so close to buying the Kings Double Swag from 4WD Supacentre.

We like our BCF Wanderers Camping Chair which gets a lot of use as we travel Australia.

No more lugging around a huge BBQ and gas bottle now that we have a brilliant Gasmate Dual Burner Butane Cooktop from Tentworld

A good Portable Fridge Freezer we have found to keep the beers cold and steaks frozen are the Kings 70 L Fridge Freezer in the budget range, the Waeco 75L Dual Zone Fridge Freezer or the ever popular and long lasting Engel 75L Fridge Freezer.

A good quality Hand Held UHF is ideal and I like this Uniden UH750 5 watt UHF for long range and quality. The 5 watt range will give you maximum distance, especially if you need help!

Enjoying our Lucky Bay Campground stay relaxing on the beach

Check out our video for all the information. Plus read about more of our Best Low Cost Campgrounds around Australia.

This is one of Australia’s most spectacular regions and is a very popular place to stay.

What is there to do at Lucky Bay Campground, Cape Le Grande National Park?

Frenchman Peak

Climb Frenchman Peak

Frenchman Peak was named by a surveyor named Andrew Forrest in 1870. The shape of the peak was thought to resemble that of a hat worn by French Troops.

A cave near the top is believed to have been created by waves and ocean waters 40 million years ago when sea levels were much higher then today.

This is also where you will likely get the best phone coverage in Cape Le Grand National Park.

Hellfire Bay

Relax at Hellfire Bay

Hellfire Bay and Little Hellfire Bay are incredibly spectacular beaches not far from Lucky Bay Campground. You can swim and walk along this stunning beach or climb the rocks for even better views.

Thistle Cove

Discover Thistle Cove and Whistling Rock

Another glorious beach in Cape Le Grand National Park with rocks nearby that due to their shape provide natural sounds from the wind.

Cape Le Grand Beach

Swim at Cape Le Grand Beach

It was my opinion that this was the most breathtaking beach of them all. It’s hard to judge which one is the best because they are all so magnificent.

Our camera equipment we use for all our photos and videos are:

Samsung Note 10 Plus Phone – https://ebay.to/2XOjXhi – Most of our photos are simply from our phones. The Samsung phone cameras are pretty insane. Our phones have 512gb storage in ours but the 256gb in this one is heaps. We have sourced this one which is approx $500 less than we paid for ours.

Canon 800d – https://ebay.to/2XQYnsk – the latest DSLR Canon 24mp camera, buy here to save.

Lenses

Canon 50mm lens – https://ebay.to/3nx5pyG  This is the lens I use the least, ideal for still, close up shots.
Canon 24-105mm lenshttps://ebay.to/3eCueUo This is my all round, everyday use, zoom lens. Amazing quality, great price.
Canon 70-300mm lens – https://ebay.to/33xYeht – I use this one a lot for long range shots.
Sigma 10-20mm lenshttps://ebay.to/2TWt0vA  – My wide angle lens for all my inside photos & video plus lots more, love this lens.

Our Go Pro 7 Hero Black – https://ebay.to/34thTP1  –  is an awesome piece of equipment. I use this for all underwater, action video and some general use. Buy here brand new and great value.

Mavic Pro Platinum Drone – https://ebay.to/2ARPxTo  This is an absolute ripper of a drone. The Fly More Combo will provide you with everything you will need. I use this for all my aerial footage and this price is well below other retail stores.

5 Essentials – 4WD Accessories

  1. 4WD Recovery Tracks will get you out of most situations, especially in sand. We bought a pair of these generic branded tracks that have worked well whilst other brands include the Australian made TRED or the Australian Designed and made MAXTRAX 4wd Recovery Tracks.
  2. For our 4WD we went with this EDECOA 1500 3000w Pure Sine Wave Inverter which has been excellent value and works great.
  3. I’m a massive fan of my Victron IP65 15a Battery Charger. I use it often to give batteries a boost and it really is an essential part of my tool kit.
  4. When camping my Kings 200w Solar Blanket gets a lot of use and works really well. Only downside is it doesn’t work with Lithium batteries.
  5. Brass Tyre Deflators are a fast and easy way to lower your tyre pressure to your desired level. Perfect for when you are hitting the beach.
