Campsite booking system improved

WA’s parks receive about twenty million visits per year, and camping has become hugely popular. An upgraded Park Stay WA online campsite booking system allows for better management of campsites and gives campers more flexibility to cancel or change bookings.

Park Stay WA is used to book campsites managed by the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attraction’s Parks and Wildlife Service in Western Australia’s national parks.

There are sixty-five campgrounds with 1,953 campsites available for booking and about 120,000 campsite bookings were processed through Park Stay WA last year, resulting in about 971,000 camper nights booked.

The recent upgrades to this booking system give campers more autonomy when booking by allowing people to create an account, make a booking, and then make changes or cancel the booking if needed. It is hoped the changes will reduce the number of bookings that go unused when campers do not take possession of the site on the booked date, arrive at the site late, or leave early.

DBCA’s recently upgraded Explore Parks website is now easier to navigate and more accessible on mobile devices.
