NEW Litchfield National Park camps to open for winter in Northern Territory

Litchfield National Park Central Valley Map

Three secluded 4WD campgrounds, next to East Reynolds River are due to open May 28, 2022.  To camp at Central Valley campground 1, 2 or 3, you must have a booking and key to enter. Access is via a locked gate.

These campgrounds mark the completion of the $17.5 million Turbo Charging Tourism project.
More than 300,000 people visit Litchfield National Park every year and the addition of Central Valley has created 32 new campsites across 3 campgrounds in Litchfield.

Territorians have also embraced Central Valley, with 99 per cent of camp bookings for Campground 1 coming from local residents.

Each of the campgrounds has something slightly different for visitors, with Campground 1 offering direct access to a spring-fed creek, and campgrounds 2 and 3 offering more family-friendly bush camping with a short walk to the water.

  • Campground 1: 10 unpowered drive-in designated camping sites for high clearance 4WD vehicles.
  • Campground 2: 12 unpowered drive-in designated camping sites for high clearance 4WD vehicles.
  • Campground 3: 10 unpowered drive-in designated camping sites for 4WD vehicles.

No showers or water are supplied and pit toilets are located in each campground. Remember, swimming is in designated areas only.

Due to seasonal changes, you can usually only access Central Valley between May and November.  Access outside these months is subject to weather. You should check road conditions before you travel.

We’ll keep you updated on Stage 5, which includes the construction of bike and walk trails connecting Lost City, Central Valley and Litchfield Park Road.

The project supported 96 jobs during construction.
