Clare Valley Camping

Experience the outdoors

Take your camping gear or caravan and head to the Clare Valley for a country getaway.

Red Banks Conservation Park, Clare Valley

The Clare Valley is a popular spot with caravanners and campers. The countryside is scenic and there are plenty of wineries and attractions to visit. There are many parks to take a caravan to or pitch a tent.


The Burra Caravan and Camping Park is ideally situated. It’s on the banks of the attractive Burra Creek and is only a two minute walk from town. Wireless internet is available for those who still want internet access when they rough it.

It also has a camp kitchen, a barbecue area and everything else you expect from a good caravan park.


Riverton Caravan Park is in the Clare Valley’s picturesque Gilbert Valley. Farmland surrounds the park. Campers have access to tennis courts, a swimming pool and can travel with pets by arrangement.

The Heysen Trail

Want something more remote? The Heysen Trail travels through the Clare Valley. Walk by day and camp by night. Huts with basic facilities like rainwater tanks, toilets and simple bunks are dotted along the trail. The huts can’t be pre-booked or reserved, so it’s best to carry a tent in case the shelters are unavailable.

Think of the environment and reduce your impact. Save the landscape and use a fuel stove if possible. Always take any rubbish when you leave.

It’s a good idea to check the trail’s conditions before you set off. The Friends of the Heysen Trail is a good starting point and provides status updates.

Red Banks Conservation Park

Camp in Red Banks Conservation Park. Admire rugged earth gorges, spring-fed waterholes and old growth mallee trees. Huge marsupials known as Diprotodons roamed here thousands of years ago. It’s now one of the richest megafauna sites in Australia.

Experience the beauty of the Clare Valley. Get outdoors and go camping.
