Good news as Club Capricorn has now been closed by the owners. Received this info from the Dept Parks & Wildlife WA:

When will it start?
Camping in Yanchep National Park is due to start in July 2016

Where is it?
Our new campground is located on Henry White Oval

How long can I stay?
Visitors are allowed to camp for up to 7 nights

How much does it cost?
Department of Parks and Wildlife Camping fees are $10 per night per adult, $2.20 per night per child (6 ā 15yrs) and $6.60 per night for acceptable concession card holders.
An entry fee to Yanchep National Park of $12 per car does apply for initial entry to the park. Acceptable concession card holder entry fee is $6 per car.

How do I book?
Bookings will be available online only at www.parkstay.dpaw.wa.gov.au
Booking information will become available online in time for the July opening.

What facilities will be available?
Basic campground facilities are available including: flushing ablutions and hot showers. Picnic tables and shared use bbqs are located nearby. A limited water supply is available and fires may be permitted subject to rules and current fire bans.

Can I use a tent?
Yes! Stage one includes 10 hard bays for RVās including campervans, caravans and camper trailers and 10 grassed bays that can accommodate tents.

Can I bring my dog/cat?
No! Domestic animals are not permitted in national parks. The scent of these animals (even on a lead or in a vehicle) lingers and causes our native animals to vacate areas for many weeks.
There is also risk of poison by baits used by Department of Parks and Wildlife to control feral species as part of native animal conservation programs.

Went to Yanchep NP as a shakedown for the new van, nice and close, nice enough stay $22/night. Showers and toilets a bit old but shower was hot. They are planning on building new amenities and a better camp kitchen not sure when though. Apart from one noisy group it was a pleasant stay and will do it again, it will also be nicer when the trees between the campsites grow (it was an oval)
