Mambray Creek campground has been rejuvenated and it’s time to rediscover what this popular destination has to offer.

Mambray Creek campground was developed back in the 1980s and a recent upgrade has helped to modernise the much-loved campground while still retaining the feel and experience that makes it one of South Australia’s most popular sites.

What's new at Mambray Creek

Nestled within Mount Remarkable National Park, Mambray Creek is approximately a three hour drive north of Adelaide.

Visitors are in for a treat with the following features:

  • Campers will enjoy brand new campground amenities including a day visitor area, picnic furniture and shelters where they can tuck into dinner, a camp kitchen with food preparation and dish washing facilities, and fully accessible toilets and showers with hot water for those crisp early mornings.
  • More spacious sites allowing campers the extra privacy to kick back with a drink and immerse themselves in nature and wildlife.
  • Mambray Creek is no longer exclusive to swags and tents. It is now a whole new destination for those who arrive in larger touring caravans, motorhomes, and campervans. The site is easier to navigate thanks to four drive-through sites, improved entry points, and layouts accommodating modern camping setups.
  • The campground features a simplified, single direction road for both the main campground and the day visitor area.
