Hey Lou
If your not going though the simpson and only doing big red you will be fine.

Hi Lou

Short answer......No


At Innmincka, camp in the common, only $5 a night, and you can camp right in the edge of the Cooper.


Have a great time away in one great country.

I wonder how NPs manage that because the road in and the camp site is on Anna Creek land, not in the National Park which starts at the lake edge.

Level Post Bay is a PAR (Public Access Route) no cost at all to traverse out there and back,as long as it's open (dry).
Muloorina (ph 08 8675 8386) will advise if it's open.
Yes, you pay them to camp there, the RFDS gets it I believe ?

Out of interest, I know the Desert Parks pass is only for South Australian parks and this does include the Innamincka Regional Reserve. With the Dig Tree actually in Queensland, what's in the Reserve worth seeing that the pass covers?

Yes it includes Inna Reg Res, but of course the Dig Tree is on Nappa Merrie property.
We went out there some years ago, was only a charge to camp ?

You can drive right out to Poeppel Corner if you like, the DPP is only needed if you go into SA and the Simpson Desert Conservation Park.
