The best camping near Lincoln National Park guide

Overview

About

The wild southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula is a sea-ravaged paradise of rocky coves, pristine white-sand beaches, and bush-clad headlands. Venture off-road in a 4WD to discover secluded beaches and sweeping sand dunes, dive in to swim and snorkel in crystalline waters, or soak up the scenery as you hike the long-distance Investigator Trail. Escaping the crowds is easy, even in midsummer, whether you’re seeking out a quiet spot to fish, whale-watching and bird-watching along the coast, or checking into a tranquil beachside campsite. Speaking of camping, there are 14 campgrounds to choose from, plus a cottage rental and glampsites.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for glamping: September Beach Campground has 12 sites suitable for caravans, campervans, camper trailers, and tents, plus glamping tents.
  • Best for getting on the water: Taylor’s Landing Campground has a boat ramp, plus toilets, picnic facilities, and unpowered sites for caravans and campervans.
  • Best for a back-to-nature experience: Memory Cove provides secluded beach camping in a locked wilderness area—advance bookings are essential.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Advance bookings are required for all campgrounds.
  2. You can book online via the South Australia National Parks and Wildlife Service website up to 12 months in advance. 
  3. Campsites can book up fast during peak season (December-Feb), especially over weekends and school holidays. Book at least three months in advance to avoid disappointment.

When to go

The warm sunny days of summer provide the perfect weather for swimming, snorkelling, and beach activities at Lincoln National Park, and this is the most popular time to visit. Wildlife lovers should plan a late winter or spring visit, when birdwatching opportunities are at their peak, and it’s whale-watching season (May through October) along the coast.
