I'm after some location within about 3 hours from Adelaide, preferably nth. Not caravan parks but somewhere you can book for a group of about 10-20, half of these would be kids around 7.
The loo would need to be within walking distance off the camp, and we want a fire.
We are looking at the oct. long weekend, hence the need to book.
My choice would be one of the many stations who are now into tourism, but the majority are not seasoned campers and they want to be able to flush.
Is there such a mythical place.

Some would say it aint really camping when you can flush.
It be good for anyone to experience what some would call real camping.

G'day Dean - I'm with Cuffs on Spear Creek - has everything you mention - flushing dunnies, showers, fireplaces, bushwalking nearby, mountains to climb, all with the shops in PA about 30 minutes away if you forget something. Quorn, Wilmington etc just over the hills a bit.

one spot would be innes national park at the bottom end of yorks there are some camping areas there which are near flushing toilets and showers.
another one but it might even be to close is Kypto forest near meadows, but the loos are long drop. they have some areas set aside for camping, nice spot, free wood.
good luck.

Geez, what next?

I was there twice, pretty much immediately after it was gazetted, and kept on thinking I'd soon drive into a patch of someone's whoopee weed that was supposed to be a secret. Have you seen that lovely old stone hut?

Are there new tracks in there/can you get into Newikie Creek from there now?

BTW, have a good'un for the next few months.

best regards

Rick

I would second Spear Creek. Mambray Creek is also a good option. Fo a group book the "Pines" school camping site whcih is great.
Any mug can be uncomfortable out bush

Hi Dean,
Long time no see, Looks like I need to have another Teddy Bears Picnic, BUT your friends would have to us one of our SPECIAL home made long drops?
We could give them each a bucket of water!
Our 4wd club were planning to go to Katarapko creek near loxton , everything you want, but no FLUSH! But the Teddy Bears Picnic sounds good?
Great to hear from you mate, I havent been on much lately, over worked! hahahahaha

Cheers Pesty
