Caravan Parks in Adelaide Hills, South Australia

A good percentage of camping and caravanning travellers stop at Caravan Parks in Australia. There are thousands to choose from, and you do not need to be self-sufficient. This means they are suitable for all types of camping, from swags, rooftop tents, tents, camper trailers, campers, motorhomes and caravans. 

Few have room for Big Rigs, however caravan parks also offer cabins or glamping. Many caravan parks are located in idyllic spots – close to town or beachside. 

Many campers start their adventures in caravan parks as you have familiar comforts and facilities from home. Families can seek out extra attractions like water parks, jumping pillows and playgrounds – which means you can enjoy a get together and not even leave the park!  

Just use the symbols or the filters to find them in our comprehensive guide books and Camps Australia Wide App!

Here’s a preview of campsites and caravan parks we have found with 30 years of research! Happy camping…

Coonalpyn, in the Coorong region, in the south east corner of South Australia, has a local hotel, bakery coffee shop plus a

Caravan parks and a natural hot tub at Bitter Springs, Northern Territory

Camps Ambassadors Dale and Tracey enjoyed a hot soak in the Northern Territory recently! Bitter Springs is definitely one of our favourite hot springs. Set amongst the palm trees in the Elsey National Park, you hop in the thermal spring creek and float down with the current for about 15 minutes til you get to another set of steps, where you hop out and walk back to the start and do it all again. You can see from their video how glorious the water is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3rL7xBvaZI The crystal clear, 32 degree temperature of the water lets you see freshwater turtles if
