Coolendel is a family camping destination. We ask that music is turned off and noise is kept to a minimum after 10.30pm so that everyone can enjoy their getaway. Motorbikes and generators are not allowed in the park.

Do I need a 4WD to get to Coolendel?
No. The road to Coolendel is suitable for any vehicle as long as you can deal with bends, bumps and a little dust. About 11kms of the road is unsurfaced, however that doesn’t stop our campers arriving in anything from a Mini Cooper to a bus. Just slow down and enjoy the scenery!

PLEASE NOTE: Coolendel is a Nature Reserve. This means no pets, no motorbikes and no generators allowed.
