Jeff....can't remember the exact fees, but they are quite reasonable at the only caravan park in Yulara...you won't be shocked. Its a nice park too. Yulara / AR is a great spot to visit...despite the visitor numbers, the place is not damaged - well controlled. Go for a walk in the Olga's...great ! Prices in the only supermarket are ok - there is only one service station too - prices reasonable also, considering the distances etc.
If you like a drink TAKE IT WITH YOU. Liquor prices have to be experienced !! (must be set for the backpackers who can't carry it in - what a rip off)...AND you can't buy a slab in the town anywhere - only 6 packs, at slab prices !! Last word...if your car happens to konk out, consider pushing it over to the Alice :o) - I once saw what the only repairer in town was capable of doing to visitors - it was not pretty.
Love the bush - stuck in the city - help.

Troupa , We were there 2000 we found the site prices pretty much in line with the others , Pt Augusta, Coober etc . the only thing we found was the ground was quite rough ,although we had a camper trailer it didn`t worry us. If you have a soft floor camper or tent I would consider taking a broom and an extra ground tarp.
Hope this helps

From memory you had to buy a pass for 7 days to enter the park,most people only used 1 to 2 days of the pass, these were then passed to fellow travellers at reduced rate from places like curtain springs when i was there in 2000,not sure if its still the same worth asking.

Also we found backpackers would set up their tents 18 inches from ours,different sense of privacy than im used to,but still a great place.

Jeff,
Camping close to the rock is restricted to the resort, which is OK'ish, but comes as a bit of a shock when you have been camping out in the wide open.
The go is to enter the park, have an early dinner, and then drift down the myriad of tracks to camp for the night. Best not to light a fire.

Jeff - just read an article in 4x4 Australia. Apparently there is also a $16.50 per head per adult entry fee to the Uluru NP.Be good, or be quick.
