RAC has officially acquired the Esperance Seafront Caravan Park for the next 35 years, from December 4.

The Shire of Esperance council had voted unanimously to award the tender for the lease of the park to the RAC in August, subject to Department of Planning approval.

The park will be renamed the RAC Esperance Holiday Park, with a series of refurbishments on the horizon.

RAC general manager of tourism Tony Pickworth said the acquisition built on the company's plan to provide quality accommodation in key tourism destinations around WA.

"The park includes over 170 powered caravan and camping sites across 10 acres of land, as well as cabins catering for families and large groups," Mr Pickworth said.

An RAC spokeswoman said refurbishments at the park would start after the peak tourist season, sometime following Easter.

The revamp will include the replacement of existing amenities buildings, an upgrade and/or replacement of services infrastructure and the addition of a recreation precinct with a pool, modern camp kitchen, games room, BBQ areas and playground equipment.

The park will also see the addition of a variety of self-contained accommodation units, a renovation of the reception building and upgrades to the entry and landscape.

Mr Pickworth said RAC's parks were designed to encourage people in WA to holiday in their own backyard by offering value for money experiences in the state's most popular destinations.
