I would say very popular. Theres a couple of places to camp under dense pepermint trees and of course the shack.
But otherwise prob a bit limited.
Yes its ok for camper trailors ive seen them there but really its rude and arrogant to take one then expect non towing vehicles to get out of your way everytime on those tight south coast tracks

Thanks" get outmore"
I actually have never taken a trailer on these south coast tracks however have encountered plenty of other people who do and I'm quite happy to give them some extra room I feel it's only courteous and don't in any way feel they are rude or arrogant.
Everyone has there own way of "getting out more" and who are we to say you should or should not take this or that here or there

A little tolerance these days goes a long way and I am afraid we are loosing this aspect of the great outdoors

Cheers
Richard

I think "get outmore"....needs to get out more.

No needs for arrogance like that.

I stand by what I said. There really is no room on those tracks and when vehicles come head to head someone either has to go bush or reverse back.
Yes tolerence is required and ive got slot of it .
Trailer towers just expect you to get out of there way because their towing its kind of funny when 2towers come head to head.
Yes its a free country but it shows a total lack of consideration for other teack users towing on them

1. The site is as basic as you can get - i.e. no facilities whatsoever. If you're lucky enough to find a space under a shady tree - first in, best dressed.
2. Very, very popular. You're talking about the peak holiday/camping/4W-driving time of year for Southern W.A.
3. Yes, but as get outmore says, the tracks are narrow and windy.

G, day Richard l, you should be ok to camp in January other than Australia day as it is very busy. Moore's hut can fit in 4 to 5 camps, a bit further on is a camping area that has 5 or 6 camps that get very little use, also there is camping area behind the fordunes at coody beach, fresh water creek nearby.
Please be aware that entry fees are payable, you need to arrange with a DPAW office as there are no self registration stations in the area. A annual parks pass is probably the best option. At present the track is closed due to washout and inundation, ring the Pemberton DPAW office for latest conditions 08 97761207.
Cheers
John
