Not sure if this is a question of a statement. When I was in Karitjini there were vans there then.

Dales gorge is sealed all the way in and you pay $7 or$8 a night. At the Western, caravan park, end it was rough gravel road in but I think some if not all is now sealed.

Ditto, as above on access....just a point on numbers....when there a few years back, demand was very high for places at the Dales Campground......they had a booking 'office' staffed by park volunteers... people were being turned away, back to a temporary overflow spot a few km's away near the visitor centre. We were ok with camper trailers...just lucky I guess. The place was buzzing with people, so you might have to wait a day or maybe two for a van spot.....and true as mentioned....the gravel roads between campgrounds in there get a real flogging.

The cooler months and school holidays. Stay clear in summer it's just too hot and the flies will drive you insane, but at least the water will be more inviting.

Not sure what type of van you have, but assuming it is capable of driving on a good to average dirt road then yes. I was there for a visit at Easter and under the royalties for regions deal there has been a lot of bitumen put down since my last visit 5 years ago. If you enter from the East and stay at Dales gorge campground there would only be 15 km of dirt all of which was in excellent condition 3 weeks ago. They have had a lot of rain in the Pilbra in the last 6 weeks due to cyclone activity and some of the bitumen floodways have a small amount of washed gravel in them, but there was at least 2 grader crews working on both sides of the park and the road conditions were excellent. From the Dales gorge campground to the Eco resort there would be another 20-25km of dirt which was also in good condition 3 weeks ago, however most people just do the three gorges in this area as day trips. As an added bonus with all of the recent rain everything is lovely and green, and there was plenty of water in all of the gorges.

Well worth a visit one of the best national parks in Australia and definitely my favourite.

Cheers
