We have Camp 6 book for various parks and camp grounds. We find it a bit lacking as we want a book that is comprehensive and doesn't just cover cheap or free places. Does anyone know of a similar book that covers all sites for WA? It would be much more useful as all options are covered.

Hi Phil

I think you'll struggle to find it all in one book.

The EO shop has two books which may help
The Guide to Free Camping in the South of WA
Priceless Campsites & Rest Areas in North WA
These provide detailed information on free or very low cost camping across WA.

If you go to the DEC website you can see what sites they have across WA as well.

Happy New Year

You won't find them all in one place. Pick up the RAC/NRMA/RACV caravan parks guide and Camps and you'll have most of what you want.

We have found the RAC Caravan Park Guides to be increasingly useless and have stopped carrying them. Their rating system is meaningless andCPs have to pay to be included so you mostly just get big exposure for the (most expensive) chains and small local CPs which may suit us better aren't usually included.
We now use Caravan Parks Australia Wide, put out by the same people who do Camps 6. This has been excellent - it included even small parks in obscure places as well as all the larger parks and and gives a simple summary of facilities, pet friendly, chain affiliation etc and an indication of cost. It includes maps showing locations. In combination with Camps 6 we have most bases covered. Lynne

Thanks very much to you all for replying. Looks like we'll be getting a book to accompany what we already have.
Wishing you all the very best for 2013

If you don't mind an online guide Myparklist is a good one. It has location maps and links to Badgers parks reports. Also there is a link to Ozcamps for free camps sites.

I don't know what it is like in the west, but over here in the east ther is a free magazine type book published by the caravan parks association.

While it only has full listings on member sites, it does have non member sites listed.

There are also, various free accamodation guides, some of these list caravan parks.

All these can be obtained gratus from tourist information centres.

Of course the automotive club guides only list those who pay...but they have their place.

You are not going to get all the information from a single book, if ya smart you will have a wad of the things a crossreference between them and the internet sources.

For some people that is half the fun.
