Our campsite is also known as Warren Campground. It is a one way entrance off the Old Vasse Road onto Heartbreak Trail, not far from the town of Pemberton. If you are wanting to become an independent camper without the need to stay at caravan parks, this trip is a good introduction and ideal for exploring the beautiful landscape surrounding Pemberton.
It is important to note that we don’t have a set itinerary to follow every minute of this trip. My fellow campers have been invited to join a small community of experienced, independent campers who love using their Eureka, Redtrack, or Cavalier Off-road Camper Trailers. We are a happy bunch of campers willing to share our experiences and stories around the Campsite, especially during “Happy Hour” at Sunset.
Please be aware that the roads near Pemberton are unsealed and narrow track. And it is important that you check that your vehicle insurance covers you for travelling off-road, on non gazetted roads. For those who want a good campsite closer to the river, you may have to pay for the extra night as our friends will help peg out a site for you! It’s only $8/Night/person. There are drop toilets and a large BBQ/Shelter area. There are no showers!
Consider bringing a walkie talkie or CB to talk to each other in the car whilst driving, a portable shower, pop up tent, esky with ice or fridge. Take a rain jacket and some warm clothing as weather conditions can change this weekend.
