About this campground
Crystal Springs is a gateway to the eastern section of D’Entrecasteaux National Park with Mandalay Beach, Banksia Camp and Broke Inlet accessed from here. You can also visit Walpole’s western beaches – Hush Hush, Long Point, Little Long Point and Lost Beach. With the exception of Mandalay Beach, all of these places are accessible by four-wheel drive vehicle only.
It is the ideal place to base your explorations of the area as it is situated close to the highway. You can set up camp under a thick grove of peppermint trees and you’re only a short drive from Walpole.
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. Always comply with any instructions at campgrounds and parks.
Campers´ own liquid or gas fuel barbecues, stoves and heaters can be used at any time, unless a total fire ban has been declared.

We recognise and acknowledge Minang and Bibbulman people as the traditional owners of D'Entrecasteaux National Park.
There is evidence that Noongar people have lived in South-West Australia for over 47,000 years. The oldest archeological evidence at D’Entrecasteaux is dated at 6000 years, although this does not mean it wasn’t occupied early than this. Erosion of sand dunes within the park has revealed numerous stone artifacts, fish traps, quarry sites, mythological and burial sites. The majority of these are located around the Lake Jasper/ Meerup Dunes area, an area of particular archeological and cultural significance to the Noongar people. Artifacts have been found 10 metres below Lake Jasper’s current water levels, indicating a number of major campsites existed here when the lake was a prehistoric forest.
