The National Park is located 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Esperance on the southern coast. A vehicle entry fee applies to Stokes National Park.
The Park is named after Stokes Inlet, which lies within the park and is its best known feature.
The National Park is a relinquished pastoral lease, originally known as Fanny Cove Station, which in 1951 became Young River Station. It was then reverted to crown land and national park status by 1973. The Moir homestead ruins from the 1873 establishment at Fanny Cove was on a heritage list by 1993, but has since been destroyed by fire.
