Camping in South Australia

South East South Australia

Bool Lagoon

Little Dip Conservation Park

The Little Dip Conservation Park offers camping grounds in a number of locations.  Most of these areas are accessible by 2WD vehicle, however to fully appreciate the park a 4WD is necessary to negotiate the sandy beaches and dunes.

Beachport Conservation Park

A number of sheltered camp sites are provided along the shores of the inland Lake George.

Canunda National Park

Camping areas are provided to the north near Southend at Cullen Bay and McIntyre Beach.  Other areas are accessible to 4WD vehicles only at Oil Rig Square and further south at Number Two Rocks.  The park is a wonderful place to spend a day or two.

Naracoorte Caves Conservation Park

Many people don't realise that camping facilities are provided within the boundaries of the Naracoorte Caves Conservation Park.  In addition to the cave tours, the park has many bushwalks and is a great base for exploring the region.

Bool Lagoon Game Reserve

Bool Lagoon provides basic facilities for camping near the shores of Hacks Lagoon.  Bring your own fresh water and register at the visitors centre.

Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park

These amazing fresh water ponds are located right down on the far south coast.  You can snorkel in the ponds with a permit available in Mt Gambier.  A small camping area is provided, but bring your own fresh water.

Ngarkat, Mt Rescue and Scorpion Springs Conservation Parks

These three parks have been set aside to preserve the native scrubland and mallee country of South Australia.   There are camping areas at Buck's Camp Soakage and Rabbit Island Soakage in the south-west corner of Mount Rescue CP.  You can also camp amongst the trees at Comet Bore or Pertendi Bore just off of the main Bordertown to Pinnaroo road.  Pine Hut Soak in the northern section of Scorpion Springs CP is another attractive, shady campground.
