Steve,
There is a bush campsite adjacent to yards on E side of track, approx 10kms in (North) from Merty Merty on old Strez Track.

Steven, By all means camp but it's not even a day's trip. I just checked the track I saved from my GPS on our last trip up there. We left Innamincka at 2.52pm and arrived at Cameron Corner at 5.44pm. It's only 141.4 km and we went on to Tibooburra for tea (a bit late but the pub was still serving meals when we got there.
I would say there are numerous places to camp on the way but none anywhere near as nice as on Cooper Creek at Innamincka. Oh and by the way if it rains you'll have to camp wherever you can find a spot as the roads become impassable - we got through before rain but friends a day behind us were camped were camped on the track for over 30 hours! Great country!!! Have fun!!

I second that Mick. I would also camp on the Cooper Ck at Innamincka where Bourke died. Its near the water (if there is still any in there) and nice and flat.
Regards
