About this campground
The Big Lagoon camping area has well spaced camp sites and sheltered decking, toilets and barbecue facilities near the shoreline.
You are welcome to fish in the lagoon south of the camping area but fishing and crabbing are prohibited in Big Lagoon's northern waters (an important fish nursery area). These are protected within a sanctuary zone in the Shark Bay Marine Park. Drop nets for crabs are allowed but set netting and spearfishing are not permitted. To protect dolphins and dugongs, waterskiing and freestyle jet skiing are not permitted.
