There’s still time to book a camping trip for the long weekend. Here’s what’s available in SA’s national parks.
Wondering where you can camp in South Australia this Queen’s Birthday long weekend? Some of South Australia’s best campsites are available at parks across the state for dates between Saturday 12 June and Monday 14 June.
Whether you’re after a fishing trip on a secluded beach, an outback adventure under a carpet of stars or a quiet spot to paddle on the river, South Australia’s parks have the site for you.
Where can I go camping this long weekend?
Campsites in South Australia’s national parks can be booked up to 12 months in advance and the most popular sites sell out quickly around holiday times.
There are still many campsites available for this weekend – here’s a list:
Adelaide and surrounds
Flinders Ranges and Outback
Note: ferry bookings to Kangaroo Island can sell out around holiday times, so Kangaroo Island parks might only be an option if you’re a local, if you’ve already booked your ferry, or if you’re happy to fly to the island.
Availability at these campgrounds for the June long weekend is correct as of Tuesday 8 June.
Top tip: Campsites can be booked 12 months in advance, so if you’ve missed out on your perfect spot this year you can always book ahead for next year.
How much does it cost to camp in national parks?
Campsite prices range from $13 to $33, depending on the level of facilities and whether the camping fee includes vehicle entry. Prices, facilities and park information including maps is available on the National Parks and Wildlife Service website.
