Accommodation & Site Requests
We make every effort to fulfill our guest’s requests. However at times those requests can not be met due to guests that are checked in and may wish to extend their stay or maintenance that may need to be carried out on accommodation or sites. The accommodation or site may also be unfit for use due to unforeseen circumstances. Therefore we can not guarantee requested sites.
A credit card pre-authorisation or imprint is required at check-in for all Cabins, Chalets and Luxury Glamping Tents. This covers any accidental damages, excessive mess or theft which may occur. This pre-authorisation appears on your bank statement however the money is never taken by Coalmine Beach Holiday Park unless action is required. The pre-authorisation will automatically zero itself out after 7-10 days. We ask that all kitchens be left neat and tidy, free from rubbish and the dishes washed, dried and put back where they belong. The Pre-authorisation will be processed accordingly. Should you have any queries regarding this policy please contact our reception.
Extra Vehicles, Boats and Trailers
Please consult management if you plan on bringing an extra vehicle, boat or trailer as we provide only one parking space per site or accommodation. We do have a boat storage yard onsite plus two overflow car parks at either end of Coalmine Beach Holiday Park.
In compliance with the Bush Fires Act and Shire Regulations, camp fires are prohibited within Coalmine Beach Holiday Park from November/December through to March/April each year. These dates may be extended dependant upon weather conditions and advise from the local shire. During open season we supply some concrete fire pits throughout the park for guests to use. Firewood is available from reception in season. Please confirm with staff about site allocation, before arrival, if you want a site with a fire pit (Subject To Availability). No Personal Fire Pits are permitted at Coalmine Beach Holiday Park to comply with our insurance. We are surrounded by National Park and it is forbidden to remove any wood from the bush. Our local rangers constantly patrol the National Parks and fines will apply.
Pets are not permitted within Coalmine Beach Holiday Park and surrounding National parks. Please arrange to leave your pets at home. Service Dogs are allowed entry only with service papers which must be sighted on arrival.
Fish Cleaning/Bait Storage
Walpole and Coalmine Beach Holiday Park is surrounded by two large bodies of water including the Walpole Inlet and the Nornalup Inlet. These inlets with the river systems have been classified as a National Marine Park. This means that fish cleaning must be done at the Walpole Town Jetty fish cleaning facility. People seen fish cleaning on the shores of the inlets or on their boats can incur a fine for doing so. All fish offal is to be disposed of at the fish cleaning facility in town. We ask all guests of Coalmine Beach to store fishing bait in their own fridge/freezers, not in the camp kitchens. This ensures our fridge/freezers are left clean and tidy for guests food and drinks. Any bait stored in our fridge/freezers will be disposed of immediately.
