Unless it has been dramatically changed recently, the camping is on fairly loose sand. We camped one night there before moving on. This was enough time at the location for us. There is a good view of that part of the lake and it is below sea level.

William Creek is a good access point. Take care on the road for loose sand.

The campground at the Lake edge is small, but OK.
There is also camping at William Creek (with facilities, for a fee).
The road out to the Lake WAS good, but will chop up to include some bull dust fairly quickly with the traffic. There is no sand issue and it was quite OK for 2WD over Easter.
Probably one night at the Lake and maybe one in William Creek would satsfy.
Allow time on the Track to explore the other old sidings an the Mound Springs.

Cheers,

Sorry, only answered half your questions
There was water 200m from the edge of the Lake at Halligan Bay (in from William Creek).
There was no water visable at Muloorina or Lake Eyre south.

Cheers,
Peter

Up there over Easter
stayed at Muloorina
Had a flight over the Lake & saw the Marree man with Central Air at Marree. Flight 75 minutes $250 per head
Book at the Marree store with Lyall Oldfield
Well worth it

Lake still filling Am on the way back up there in late June to have a look at coming down around Birdsville
