Mount Remarkable National Park Camp Sites

The park, in the Southern Flinders Ranges, offers visitors a true wilderness experience within easy reach of Adelaide.  Vehicle access to the park is from Highway 1, approximately 45 km north of Port Pirie, to park headquarters at Mambray Creek (5 km), or via a picturesque drive commencing 1 km south of Wilmington on Main North Road to Alligator Gorge (13 km)

Vehicle based camping is provided at Mambray Creek campground. There are fifty-three level unpowered sites, flushing toilets, solar heated showers, water supply, firewood supply (in season) and communal fireplaces. Facilities provided are suitable for disabled access.

Two group camping areas located adjacent to the main campground are also available. These are ideal for school, community and large family groups, with a capacity of 60 people in Redgums Group Campsite and 40 in Native Pines Group Campsite. Each group camping area consists of communal areas, with running water, kitchen site with table and a fire pit surrounded by benches. Tent sites radiate from these central areas. The group sites share an amenities block.

Vehicle based camping is not permitted at Alligator Gorge.

Bush Camping

Bush camping in the park means a walk-in with your pack, low impact activity. You may camp overnight in any of the eleven designated sites from 1 May to 31 October only. Please keep to these sites when camping within the park. This minimises environmental impact and enables staff to monitor and manage sites. Organised groups should be limited to a maximum of twelve people. A Trip Intentions form (200Kb PDF) should be lodged with the park office well in advance.

More detailed information is available from the self-registration stations or park headquarters.
