Coronation Beach Campsite is about 50 to 100mtrs from the water and has basic facilities, long drop loos but no water. Limited shade is available. It is a very popular spot and is usually well patronised during school hols etc.
There is a Ranger that collects camp fees mon to fri and the weekends are on a honesty basis, with collection box provided.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

As above. It's more or less right on the beach. It does suffer from the wind a fair bit. It's a good swiiming area and the fishing can be good for Mulloway, Tailor and Flathead further up the beach to the north. The beach at Coronation is inside a reef and is quiet shallow. Cray boatys anchor up there a lot and they are always trolling up & down day & night - but quietly out to sea.

The camping areas were once a "free for all and get one while ya can", but now they have areas fenced off that take 2 vans or 4 tents at a time in one site. Altogether, there's room fer about 25 vans, but the caretakers will always squeeze you in somewhere.

The caretakers are great & very easy going and friendly. But no fires allowed anywhere, anytime, all year round.

About 20 kms of mildly corrugated dirt to get in from the bitumen highway.

I liked it. We stayed about 10 days.

might be a while since you've been there Bilbo!!, the road is sealed about halfway in, and its about 8 k's from the hiway. At this time of year there is loads of windsurfers there and it is very busy but that is only over dec early jan. There is a couple of crayboats there on moorings but they dont troll up and down day and night, just head out at between 4 and 6 am and back in during the arvo, mainly in the summer, but 1 or 2 til june.
Camp is a few steps from beach, and 28k's from Gero and same from Northampton.
There are other spots further on toward kalbarri with no facilities at all like Lucky Bay, and a lot of spots you could discreetly camp if your are out of the way.
