If you are looking at caravan park/campground stopovers, suggest Copley rather than Lyndhurst - nice little c.p. William Creek - in 2007 we stayed at the new caravan park; not much shade of course, but very nice amenities and quieter than round the pub. Sounds like you might be going towards Oodnadatta? If so, recommend a bush camp on the Neales River - big waterhole by ruins of Algebuckina bridge - lovely.

Yes, been in those parts several times, most recently in 2007.
Re van - depends what sort. We have an offroad van - 14foot inside length - and have no problems. Have never towed a normal van so can only judge by what we have seen or heard first hand. A family member took an ordinary van (16 footer) up the Birdsville Track a few years back, ok. I do not recollect seeing anything other than off roaders on the Oodnadatta. Maybe other members could comment on that question?

I also agree re William Creek and the Algebuckina Waterhole opposite the Bridge, on the other side of the track.

If you are looking for something really novel, you can camp underground at Riva's Underground Caravan Park at Cooper Pedy, although we found the Oasis CP towards the northern end of the main street more central.

Camerons Corner is not a good choice. The "park" is a paddock out in the open, near the Pub.


I'm diagonally parked in a parallel Universe!

Caravan park at Marla at rear of pub/store..adequate for overnight,
but otherwise fairly ordinary. Algebukkina Bridge is a fabulous stop,
no facilities, but great if you are set up to bush camp. Lovely bush
camps in Parachilna Gorge 12 k west of Parachilna if you are that
far south.....oldbaz.
