SA’s Pildappa Rock reopens after upgrades and you can now camp nearby at NEW Pildappa Park Campground.

The new site is on private land close by and was unable to open sooner due to the dry dusty conditions.  The owners have waited patiently for a drop of rain to settle the area down so they could get the road ready, and it is now open.

Access is via the Rock Reserve.  There is a loop around the Rock and the road to the campground leads off that loop.

The camp is a large bush paddock and offers a flushing toilet, and communal firepit.  There is walking access back to Pildappa Rock.  The 400m climb to the summit is best enjoyed at sunrise and sunset and you’ll be rewarded with views to the Gawler Ranges.

As this is a working farm with cattle, pets are permitted but must be on lead all the times, as there are also fox baits in the area.
