Lovely spot but there are only TWO designated camp sites. They should be booked online according to Parks SA but apparently their system lists 3 sites available. We had trouble as three groups had booked and we found not enough sites. A heap of other campers had just come in and camped all over the place as they had been told to just find a spot

Our third stay in the same site, 08, 16 and 18. It won't be our last (I hope)
