Muloorina Station Waterhole is an excellent campsite to stay and travel to Level Post Bay. See the link to places.

Muloorina Station for sure. The camp site is on the bank of the Frome River which is fed with water from the homestead bore, and is an honesty box donation for Trevor and Cindy to maintain the toilet and the camping area.

The drive to lake is around 1 hour (depending on road conditions) through the station's property. The first glimpse of the lake is the top end of the eastern side of Lake Eyre south where the south and north lakes join.

On arrival at Level Post Bay you can stroll a very short distance and walk on lake Eyre North.

You will enjoy staying at the camp site as there are many species of birds on the waterhole and if you are lucky you may receive a visit from the stations cattle coming in for water.

Another vote for Muloorina.

We were there in 2011, and the mice were very friendly, and comical. Wouldn't have that worry now.

Another good camp is at Clayton Station wetlands, though would involve more travel, to get to Level Post Bay.

Make sure you call into the pub for a beer and say hi to mine host - Phil Turner.

While at the Marree hotel have a look through the Tom Kruse memorabilia room in the hotel. Very interesting reading and photos of Tom, "The great outback mailman"

+1 for Muloorina Station waterhole, good place to camp. Also, on the western side, you can camp almost on the edge of the lake, coming in thru the park entrance, only the track in was pretty rough when we last went in. As far as being easy to just walk on the salt, Lake Eyre South is the best bet. From the Carpark/info bay, only a short walk to the lake.
Both other ways into Lake Eyre (north) are about a good hour drive in.
Hope this helps.

Another option is to camp at William Creek on the Oodnadatta Track, then drive to Halligan Bay, which is the lowest point below sea level in Australia.
Although I haven't met the current host of the iconic William Creek hotel, this pub is worth a visit, and is directly opposite the campground.

Or just camp at Halligan Bay and spend the night right next to the Lake. I did it a few years ago and it is one of my fondest memories.

The whole of Lake Eyre is the lowest point of Australia unless you dig a hole in the surface to the depth measurement.

I think you will find that Halligan Bay is recognised as the lowest point in Australia
