Campground Guidelines

How to camp safely with us.

Wilpena Pound Campground Guidelines

Our campground is open but the way we camp has now changed. To allow us to adhere to social distancing and hygiene protocols, we will be changing the way we operate. You must be willing to adhere to the below guidelines if you plan to camp with us.


With the change in social distancing regulations from 1 person per 4 squaer meters to 1 person per 2 square meters, we have reopened all of our capsites.

Maximum Numbers

Bookings will now be for a maximum of one 'household unit' of up to 6 persons per campsite.

If there is more than 6 people in your group you will need to book another site.


We strongly recommend that you book and pay for your campsite in advance.

Due to the increased popularity of camping, we can not guarantee you will be able to camp, unless you have a confirmed campsite booking.

As we are operating with a reduced team, we recommend booking via our website. We may not be able to answer all emails and phone calls in a timely manner.

Communal Areas

Use of communal areas are restricted to only one person per 2 square metres (e.g. BBQ's, bathrooms).

After use of a communal area, all surfaces are to be appropriately cleaned and all refuse and personal items removed.

Amenities Blocks

We will be encouraging strict hygiene in bathrooms.

At any one time, shower blocks should only be used by individuals adhering to the 1 person per 2 square metre rule.

You should thoroughly clean all surfaces after use.

We also encourage the wearing of flip-flops or thongs, when showering.

Fire Danger Season

Fire Danger Season is 01 November 2020 ~ 15 April 2021 inclusive.

Wood fires are prohibited during the Fire Danger Season.

All open fires, liquid fuel and gas stoves are banned on Total Fire Ban days as declared by the Country Fire Service (CFS).


Please note that for the time being, our restaurant is open 7 days for breakfast and dinner. We are not open for lunch. 

Our on-site IGA Xpress general store is open daily between 8am and 6pm.


We are doing everything possible to manage our campground in a safe way.

However it is now important that campers and other park visitors are self-sufficient. You should always bring your own cooking, cleaning and personal hygiene products with you.

We also require you to provide us with a Health Declaration on arrival. Without this you will not be able to stay with us. You can download the Health Declaration form here and complete the details and bring it with you to save time at check-in. (Must be withn 14 days of arrival).
