Coongie Lakes National Park Camp Sites
At Coongie Lakes National Park is Scrubby Camp Waterhole, a secluded permanent waterhole offering visitors an enjoyable bush camping environment.
Kudriemitchie Outstation, located at the southern entrance into Coongie Lakes National Park, is a good overnight campsite, and a great spot to explore the history of the outstation.
There are numerous other camping sites along the lake shores and Cooper Creek. Be careful when camping along Cooper Creek as some trees drop their limbs unexpectedly, particularly the Northern River Red Gum in hot weather. Choose a campsite clear of vegetation and remember it is an offence to clear any vegetation in a park.
Also beware of camping in sandy creek beds and channels: Thunderstorms many kilometres away can see your campsite flooded suddenly.
Campfires are not allowed in the National Park. Please use liquid or gas stoves only.
Generators are not permitted at Coongie Lakes National Park. The noise of the generator can disturb wildlife and spoil people's wilderness experience.
Dogs and other pets are not allowed at Coongie Lakes National Park. Dogs are however allowed in Innamincka Regional Reserve if they are not aggressive or noisy, and are kept on a lead at all times.
