Pilgramunna Campground offers nine campsites with a scenic seaside camping experience.

Pilgamunna Campground is near the mouth of a creek system nestled behind sand dunes and partially protected from the prevailing south westerly winds. All sites are located approximately 50m from the beach. Camp sites have no shade. 
Bookings are required during peak season (April to October). Check in and check out are 10am. Bookings cannot be made within 48 hours of the time of arrival. From November to March, however, camping sites are allocated on a first come, first served basis and bookings are not applicable. 
Campground hosts stay in the park from April to the end of November.
Camp site dimensions are specific. Ensure your vehicle or tent is suitable for your chosen camp site. 
Pilgramunna is a popular boat launching site. Pilgramunna snorkel site offers an excellent experience for snorkellers of any level. 
Stay safe
•    Pilgramunna is a flood risk area after heavy rain or during seasonal king tides. Camp site closures can occur during this time. Contact Milyering Visitor Centre for further flood risk information. 
 

In good conditions, this is an excellent place for snorkellers of any ability. You can drive your vehicle close to the entry point and the snorkel is undemanding, with the snorkeller rarely more than 10m from shore and only swimming about 150m in total. This is the best snorkel site around for obtaining maximum reward for minimum effort. Despite this, the site has a surprising diversity of marine life, some beautiful coral formations, multitudes of colourful reef fish, occasional oceanic fish species, as well as rays, sharks and diverse invertebrates. 
Stay safe
•    Inexperienced snorkellers may need to be accompanied and the site should not be dived if large swells or seas are breaking or causing a turbulent wash on the front of the rock ledges. 
•    Pilgamunna is best snorkelled on a high tide when the intertidal reef platforms are covered. 
•    Please be very aware of any boats within the lagoon area.

Campsites have no power or water but the views and natural beauty are second to none. Fees apply and there are restrictions to the length of time you can camp.

Bush walking

Cape Range offers walks through deep gorges such as Mandu Mandu and the Badjirrajirra Loop Trail across the scenic high country at Charles Knife Canyon.

Wild attractions

Euros, wallabies, emus and perenties are regularly encountered and the threatened black-footed rock-wallaby can be frequently spotted on the cliffs at Yardie Creek Gorge, which you can also view from the Yardie Creek Boat Tour. The Mangrove Bay Bird Hide is a great place to see shorebirds, mangrove fantails, mangrove whistlers and yellow white eyes.

Stay safe

Temperatures can soar to over 50°C in summer. Walks should only be attempted between April and September. Wear suitable footwear and clothing and carry plenty of water. If taking an extended walk let someone know your expected time of return.

The access road through the park is sealed, with two-wheel-drive access to camp and day use sites. A four-wheel-drive is needed to cross Yardie Creek. Conditions change quickly with rain and access may become restricted.

Wildlife abounds in the park, so please drive with consideration and avoid driving at dusk, dawn and at night.
