This site provides you with a large flat, private and secure resting spot for a large group. It also has many options for fishing, boating and access for swimming. Sit on the same banks as the First Peoples of the River Murray and look for clues of their history. This River Murray floodplain was cleared to be a fruit block is slowly being restored back. Now being restored to its former fruitful floodplain glory. Revegetation is underway to provide more shade and restore the site. Site now includes a compostable toilet!We have an amazing rare spot where you can sit right on the Murray River bank and fish.  You can set up a tent within metres of the rivers edge or park your caravan/RV within 20 metres.  You will have a secluded, quiet spot for you to enjoy with your friends and dog.  Main town is only 2.5km away - good dog walking distance.    Located on the mighty Murray River, this campsite has a cleared flat fruit block with 200 metres of exclusive Murray River frontage and limited shade.  Murray River National Park is divided into six separate areas and our region features two: the Lyrup Flats, 2,000 hectares along the floodplain on the northern side of the river. It provides wonderful opportunities for birdwatching and fishing. The Lock 4 and Eckert Creek area is a significant waterway that flows through the National Park and provides great canoe adventuring. Pelicans and other water birds, possums and kangaroos are common sights. You will need to be self contained with own water supply and camping toilet/shower amenities. Pets on leashes are welcome. Campfires are permitted when a fireban is not in place. This campsite offers a good fishing spot for native fish. There are many fantastic places to visit nearby including the Riverland Wine Centre, 3 km to the National Parks, 5 km to canoes & boat hire facilities and 4km to the township of Berri for all your supplies.

Murray River Retreat
A lovely private spot, close to great things to see and do. We had a tear drop caravan and off-road caravan on site close to the river and had a cosy campfire each night. Would recommend to any future campers.

Murray River Retreat
Peaceful place right on the river. With a camper trailer we were fortunate to be able to camp near the willow. Less attractive up higher. Compost toilet very good. You get the most of the the sun as the camp-site is situated east to west. we were able to watch it rise from our camper and enjoy the morning sun as well as the afternoon sun.
