Love camping? Be in the know before you go by planning ahead and booking online to stay in SA’s national parks.
Long weekends are the busiest times of year for camping in South Australia’s national parks, with popular campgrounds filling up quickly.
The great news is you can avoid the last minute stress of finding a camping spot by booking your campsite and park entry fees online for 45 of SA’s most popular national parks and reserves.
You’ll need to pay for entry and other permits before you arrive at these parks, as you can no longer pay at the gate.
Bookings for campsites can be made up to 12 months in advance, letting you plan your break early.
If you’re not familiar with the parks online booking system, check out the how to book online video below.
If you make a last-minute decision to have a weekend away, no problem. You can book on the road using your smartphone. Some shops and visitor centres near parks also act as booking agents and take cash payments if that’s more convenient for you.
Stay tuned as more parks are able to be booked online. Later this year, Para Wirra Conservation Park and Newland Head Conservation Park will be added to the list.
Visit the National Parks SA website to find out more information about parks to get the most out of your stay.
