Yorke Peninsula Camping

Go camping on the Yorke Peninsula

Your alarm clock is an unbeatable mix of crashing waves and twittering birdsong. Your breakfast is only a baited hook away. Welcome to camping on the Yorke Peninsula. 

Camping, Watson’s Beach, South Australia

Head to Innes National Park and its seven campgrounds. Surf beaches, historic ruins, clifftop walks and sandy coves are just some of the natural attractions. A fee applies to enter Innes National Park, so remember to display your permit. 

Camping grounds

On the Yorke Peninsula, there are many free camping options. The Gap, The Bamboos and Tiparra Rocks are all free campsites but you’ll need a permit. Bring your own water, firewood and a telescope too because the night sky is amazing.

Pondalowie Bay has 50 campsites, suitable for car-based camping, caravans and motorhomes. You’ll find toilets and shared barbecue facilities but campfires are banned.

It’s free entry but bring plenty of water and wood to Wauraltee Beach near Port Victoria and Barkers Rocks near Minlaton.

Yorke Peninsula also has more than 30 caravan parks that offer camping facilities.

Remember, most campsites are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fishing spots

There are plenty of great places on the Yorke Peninsula where camping and fishing go hand-in-hand. Around Warooka there’s Burners Beach, Foul Bay, Swincers Rock and Gleesons Landing. Burners and Swincers both have toilet facilities and boat ramps. You’ll need to bring water and firewood.

South of Yorketown, bring water and firewood to Kemp Bay, Mozzie Flat and Sturt Bay. Kemp Bay is a popular fishing spot.

Goldsmith’s Beach near Edithburgh is also great for fishing and Troubridge Hill is not far away. 

Hillocks Drive at Butler's Beach is perfect for bush camping. The long coastline provides great hideaway spots, along with campsites equipped with eco toilets and rainwater.
