The free camping site is a simple, open grassed area set on the site of the old town, about 5km north-west of Dwellingup. This site is accessible by 2WD vehicles.

Marrinup town was established in the 1880’s to harvest Jarrah. When timber resources declined, operations moved to Dwellingup, with the remainder of the town destroyed by the 1961 bush fire.Large Blackbutt trees can be seen growing in the fertile soil of the creek lines.Wooden sleepers of the old tramway tracks, built for hauling Jarrah, can still be seen in places and a creaky bridge crosses the creek.
Campfires are usually permitted, in the provided fire rings only, between April 15 and November 30 but fire restrictions may be imposed at any time and without notice. Bring your own firewood. When fire restrictions are in place campfires must not be lit and any appliance powered by burning solid fuel must not be used.

Campers´ own liquid or gas fuel barbeques, stoves and heaters can be used at any time, unless a total fire ban has been declared.

Bookings do not apply at this campground. It operates on a first come – first served basis. Please contact the campground during peak holiday season for availability.

There is a 4.5km walking trail which connects to the former Marrinup prisoner of war camp.
