G'day Reggy. We were at Drysdale Station in 2002, and there were heaps of vans/trailers being left there by people heading up to Mitchell Falls and Kalumburu. Bear in mind that was 6 years ago though.Check the link on your post above. Cheers.

hi reggy2, went there last year and a lot of people left their vans at drysdale or at king edward river. bare in mind there may be a deep river crossing to negotiate.

we were there last year and i cant see any reason why you could not leave your off camper there.
Anne from Drysdale used to be a contributor to this site, but why dont you email them and ask
why do you want to park there
It is rough up to the Mitchell plateu, but if you go easy you wont have too much trouble, but it might depend on the quality of your off roader

We were there July 2007 & were a number of vans/trailers stored there. More secure, I think, than leaving it at King Edward River. Would not advise trying to tow anything to Mitchell Plateau, unless there has been substantial work done on track beyond King Edward River, since 2007 season. This track is mostly "unmaintained" and was pretty rough then. While we were up there was one crash where driver lost it on a rocky corner (going too fast?) - VERY costly recovery job! We heard, a few weeks later, that there were a few vehicles/trailers/offroaders broken down on track and awaiting recovery. Also note that, even well after the track has been opened for the season, the King Edward crossing, though not too wide, can be a couple of feet or more deep and a bit tricky.

The KE crossing was opened in May 2007 at better than 95cm deep with good flow. Two other crossings beyond that were about 10cm-20cm lower. Large 4wds were getting through. So did Triton but sounded like he was close to staying there.

Cheers

left our camper at Drysdale while we went to Mitchell Falls and since we came back and stayed another night, no charge. Can't complain about that!
