Incredible stay here, right next to the dry riverbed. Fire pits, toilets, water and camping under the stars what more could you want. Sites 3&4 don't have much room for parking(tent sites) and the rest of the sites are only suited to small vans and tents but it was perfect for us in our camper van. Site 2 was the best. Clean toilets with sanitiser available and lots of bird life and a peaceful serenity. Would definitely stay again. Follow us on Instagram @vanlifewithlychee



Sites too small & difficult for vans.



We booked into site 6 with a camper trailer (Web site even asked if we are camper or Camper Trailer so we're surprised by sign at entrance saying No Trailers or motorhomes. But as we had booked we we managed to get to site 6 and it was just big enough for out 13' Hybrid camper with awning out and Ute all side by side. Most other sites are are only big enough for a single vehicle, but have space beyond the barriers for tents. So suits tents and rooftop/ piggy back campers with single vehicle. But the site is beautiful, much he (better than Panaroma which is well set up for big rigs) with a lot of drive through sites. Spent 3 nights and did side trip to Arltunga and N'dahla gorge. Although there is a license for Optus 3G (unsure if 4G) we got no signal at Bluff, nice.
