Osprey Bay campground and day use area in Cape Range National Park will be closed for several months while it undergoes a significant face-lift to improve visitor facilities.

Exmouth district manager Arvid Hogstrom said the redevelopment project would result in new and improved facilities at the campground.

“The current number of camp sites will be doubled and they will be divided into two loops that will have their own access roads and walking tracks to the beach,” he said.

“There will also be a separate access road to the existing boat launch and day use areas, which will help to minimise the level of passing traffic for campers.

“In addition to this, toilet facilities will be upgraded and a new day use shade shelter will also be constructed.”

Mr Hogstrom said due to the extensive upgrades at the site, the campground and day use area would remain closed from 31 October 2014 until 1 April 2015.

“We would like to thank people in advance for their understanding and patience as we make Osprey Bay an even more desirable place to visit,” he said.

Cape Range National Park near Exmouth attracted 220,000 visits during 2013-14. The Osprey Bay campground, which is located in the southern end of the park, is popular with visitors due to its sweeping ocean views, fantastic snorkelling opportunities, boat launching access, nearby kayak moorings and close proximity to Sandy Bay.
