The Camping Ground at Uluru is in the same area as the Resort complex, but the prices weren't so bad.
Be prepared however for a slug of a different kind.
To visit Uluru (Eyre
's Rock) or the Olga's, you need to buy a four day pass to gain admittance to the National Park where both are located.
The Camp Ground, etc. is something like 15 K's from "The Rock" itself.
Worth the visit, just for the look. (even though the indigenous people prefer you don't climb the rock)
King's Canyon is something else. The Camping Ground / Motel Complex is again a few kilometers away from the Canyon itself. But IMHO this "tourist attraction" is simply the best. If you are able to, spend the time to do the canyon walk. It takes about three hours of easy walking, once you climb to the top to start with and you can take a dip in the water hole, so if you are keen, wear your bathers.
King's Canyon is not "spoiled" in any way and was one of the highlights of our visit to the "Red Centre".
