Spring Creek Rest Area

Spring Creek Rest Area- Free Camp

October 19, 2017 2 Comments

The Spring Creek Rest Area believe it or not was our first free camping stay in Western Australia. We are new to the experience of free camping, having stayed at low cost camps or caravan parks mostly on our adventures.  However these roadside free camps are ideal and we are keen to utilise more of them! After a long day of driving from Derby, Western Australia on our Kimberley Adventure in 2017, we were pretty keen to pull up stumps for the day. Spring Creek Rest Area is conveniently located across  the turn off to Bungle Bungle National Park.

KEY POINTS TO CONSIDER AT  SPRING CREEK REST AREA 

-2 Areas to Stay, up top on the bitumen closest to the toilets or down on the banks of the river.

-On top is full bitumen however it throws out some heat during the warmer months, there is also 2 shade tables and a wood fire BBQ available.

-3 Hybrid Flush Toilets- Meaning put your paper in, do your business and then flush.

-Dump Point is next to Toilets however there is no running water, so you need to have your own water when emptying.

-There is many rubbish dumpsters near the entrance to the rest area, so make sure you put all your rubbish in here upon entering or exit.

-On the top area we did notice the toilets did have the odd smell when the wind below a particular direction,  however it was bearable for one night.

-Down on the base of the river, there is lots of shady spots to camp however is a bit of a walk to the toilets. If your fully set up in your van, your set!
