Can anyone recommend a good caravan park that allows dogs. The only ones I can find are Banksia park, Burns Beach and Kingsway caravan park. There doesn't seem to be many dog friendly parks in Perth.

Hi Deb
Kingsway is very much just a park with a few permanents intermingled with the itinerants . It has been ear marked for development for about 10 years but nothing seems to get done. It is close to shop,s fuel and transport into the city.
The bush retreat one IMHO is to far out of the metro area the rest I cannot comment on Burns beach is the furtherest out from the CBD. I,m never knew the water park had accommation and am making enquiries for myself as we stay south of the river

Received a short sweet email back from the Water Park $30 per night.
That all I can tell you know roughly where it is, closer to Fremantle than Perth which is OK.

Heres another one

wanneroo cp

I didnt know the kingsway one was still operating? Looks like a dump when you drive past.

Karrinyup Waters is another park near town but I'm not sure about pets.

Burns beach cp is a nice one. Also easy to get to freeway and train station to get into the cbd.

If Burns Beach allows dogs you MUST go there. The location is heaven on a stick if you like views and ease of access to beautiful coastal walk paths, great vibe, green park opposite, very low traffic and trendy cafe out front. Easy access to commute to city - plenty of people live in Burns and travel to work from there as close to freeway. I can also vouch for Karrinyup Waters being a great park and much more central to everything but in the back streets of the burbs in an odd area that has transformed from market gardens to residential estates fringing the freeway - not sure about dogs though - there used to be a few friendly/hungry black swans in park!

Burns beach CP is a great spot but, it is very small and some sites are hard to get in, but the owner is a nightmare !

It is also very expensive for what it is.

We booked for 6 weeks while I had an op at the local Joondalup hospital and they knew this and agreed it was ok.

Had the op and a week later was a long weekend, the owner came and told me I would have to leave the park but I could come back on the Tuesday after the long weekend, yea right, I couldn't even walk let alone hook up the van and drive ! and my wife does not tow the van.

After kicking up a stink they agreed to alter one of their permanent bookings to allow me to stay.
Their explanation was I was only paying weekly so they could move me out whenever it suited them, even though they had stuffed up telling me it was fine to stay for the 6 weeks.

Sorry but not nice people to deal with, we wont be going back.

We have been recommended Willowbrook farm near Gingin but a fair drive back to the city.

Thanks Hazo,
How awful to have to deal with that after surgery. We are looking at long term stay until we find a house to rent. Willowbrook Farm looks awesome wish it was closer to the city ??

Deb,

Type this into Google "Caravan parks in Perth" and you will get a map showing all C'van parks you can choose from. Click on the map on right side and then the drop down list on the left side has them all for you to look at.

Cheers P&J
