What's the Camping at North Pool, Wiluna like?

Unread post by tadpole » March 7th, 2016, 1:58 pm

Looking at taking my kids camping on the first weekend of the upcoming school holidays and North Pool at the bottom end of the CSR is drawing my interest, mainly because there's yabbies there....can anyone tell me what the camping is like there, whether they recommend it or not?

Could just be that no-one's been there in a while.... :(


Shame, cos waaaay back when I went there last (more'n just a couple of years ago now :purplex: ) the camping was pretty reasonable; but then I don't need (or want) much in the way of amenities, the more 'un-touched by hummin hands', the better! ;)

Cheers Peter. I'm just interested in how many of the local Wiluna folk hang out out there and how clean it is. Don't really like camping amongst others toilet paper and so forth...you know what I mean? Looks like I'll be heading to Niagara Dam near Menzies this trip, but want to head north at some stage. Some of the photos from there look amazing and I'd like to see it, but don't want to take my kids to a toilet..... :petrified:

Hi Tadpole
I haven't been out there since 90's when I was at Wiluna Gold and I'm not sure where North Pool is exactly.
If it is anywhere near Lake Violet take plenty of mozzie protection

The mozzies were big enough to saddle up and ride home.
I was there in June / July months so was pretty cold there at night as well

Sorry I can't be more help
