Stokes National Park is in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia.

Understand[edit]

The Stokes Inlet that lends the park its name offers many recreational activities on the water, in the surf or in the wetland.

The main camping and day area next to the mouth of the inlet is the usual spot but there are a couple other places in the park that are a bit off the beaten track.
