Lake Jasper Campground

Lake Jasper is the largest fresh water lake in South Western Australia, and together with Lake Wilson and Lake Smith forms part of an important wetland system. This pristine lake is situated amongst vegetated dunes and fed by an underground water supply.

Getting There

Lake Jasper is approximately 2 hours from Augusta. Access to Lake Jasper is 4WD only. Please reduce your tyre pressure to suit the conditions when driving on sand. The track to Lake Jasper is never graded so be prepared for some difficult sections.

Water Activities

While power craft and water skiing are no longer permitted on the lake, passive water craft activity, such as canoeing, is still permitted. The lake is also home to freshwater cobbler, providing anglers with the chance to catch some dinner.

Bird Watching

Lake Jasper has been recognised as one of the five most important wetlands for waterbirds in the southwest, and bird watchers will be able to see many species here. If you are lucky, you could be rewarded with a glimpse of the endangered Little Bittern (ixobrychus minutus).
