It’s almost Easter, and campgrounds in many of SA’s national parks are full. But here’s where you can still book.
Easter is a popular time to take a camping holiday in South Australia. Ideal weather with cool nights and sunny days makes it the perfect time to get away and connect with nature, and our picturesque national parks are the perfect place to do so.
If you’ve left your planning to the last minute, we’re here to help.
If you’re an Eyre Peninsula or River Murray local, or willing to travel to these regions, or if you have a 4WD, there are still many spots left.
