We have recently stayed at the Dead Horse campsite just outside Tibooburra and also at Fort Gray, and we also had a look but did not stay at the campground at the eastern end of the park.

They all have long drop toilets and picnic shelters with free gas BBQs and a rainwater tank. The eastern end one seemed rather open. The Fort Grey area is level and also fairly open, but they are all OK as a basic NP campground, so not much to choose between them.

Which one to use would rather depend on where you want to go in the park. I think from memory there is a camping fee of $12 plus a 3 day (?) park entry fee payable (unless you have an annual pass) = $17 for one night.

Can't say what is the best one. The only one we have stayed at was Fort Grey in July this year. One night we had the entire campground to ourselves (2 vehicles). The next there were at least 8 other cars there.
Plenty of space, sheltered BBQs, long drop dunnies.
The contemporary Fort Grey homestead is only a few hundred metres away so you can hear their generator running during the night. It is not intrusive, but it is noticeable.Lake Pinaroo is a short walk away (15 minutes). It had quite a bit of water in it for the first time in many years.

Hey Charlgrave,
I have always preferred the camp at Olive Downs - amongst mulga so a fair bit of shade (provided you get in close!), and a lot more privacy because of the number of mulga trees. It's been 2 years since I was there so can't guarantee it hasn't changed.
