Quality spot. All facilities available if this is what you are looking for. Get fully book quite early even in winter so get there early. Yet, I wouldn’t recommend as the place was plagued with flies. They’re gone as the night falls and the cold starts but during the days it is a nightmare.

We were only meant to stay one night and ended up staying 3 after the managers were kind enough to squeeze us in. Murchison is a working station and only open for part of the year. Cold at night, warm in the day. It’s the perfect base for exploring Kalbarri National Park. If you are self contained you can venture off and find your own spot by the river. Otherwise the campsite is also great. We kayaked with the kids in the river during the day and sat around the fire at night. You can buy firewood on the grounds. The toilets / showers are a bit of a trek depending on where you are camping, but didn’t bother me. Next time I’d love to try the off grid free range camping when we are better equipped.

Amazing campsite! You camp over looking the river, which is great for kayaking. We kept adding extra nights to our stay as didn’t want to leave, great location to see Nature’s Window and the other walks in the National Park. Warm showers, clean toilets and a beautiful setting.

Family of 5. 3 kids ages 11,7 and 4. Stayed for 5 nights during July school holidays. $35 p/n for all of us which is a good price. Under 6 is free, 6-16 $5 each. Ablution block is very average. Very old so hard to keep looking clean but you can tell they try. Showers are pretty old and shabby but have hot running water and flushable toilets, for $35 a night that's pretty good. House camping area is very noisy. Campers walking past at all hours to go to the toilet and it's nowhere near the "secluded river camping" it's advertised at. There is also a rooster who can't seem to tell the time, I woke up just after 4am one morning and it was already going! Overall it was a good price and pretty enough but I would recommend only 1 or 2 nights. 5 nights and all of us, including the 4 year old, were absolutely ready to throttle the next person who went to the toilet at stupid o'clock!
