About this campground
Conto is a very large campground 4km from Conto Beach in the Margaret River Region. It is close to Boranup Forest and on the Cape to Cape Track.
Bookings are essential and can be made up to 180 days (approximately six months) before arrival and for one campsite only.
Specific campsites cannot be reserved. Choose an area when booking and select from campsites in that area that are vacant on arrival.
If you are an outdoor education provider, licensed commercial tour operator or are organising an event (friends, family and other social groups camping together does not constitute an event), contact Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park Information Centre (Calgardup) to discuss your requirements.
