What a fantastic campground! We were so impressed with the amenities, the cleanest we have seen in a national park (all around Australia). The central location to the hikes and attractions made it! The campground sites were even, shaded spots could be found, beautiful scenery and friendly staff who were willing to share stories and advice. Two thumbs up!!!

We stayed at the campground which is part of the Wilpena Pound Resort. The facilities were clean - plenty of showers and toilets and several camp kitchens - and the showers were hot. The campground is right in the heart of things and you need to be careful to put food away at night because the kangaroos are so friendly.... More

Overall good-room rates bit high for age/condition of amenities. Friendly staff-meals nice and prices okay. Couple of grumbles-advertised wi-fi-asked-getting fixed(gather it had been for a while). Asked about BBQ-getting new ones-not here yet(again I think this has been going on for a while). They said we could use camping ground BBQ so thought that's good. WRONG they were filthy-not cleaned... More

Wonderful surroundings, and accommodation. Kangaroos and emus wandering around. For me, the only problem was that the menu never changed. After just a few days, we were searching for something different to eat. My family were in one of the lovely safari tents, but, as I am disabled, I was in a specially adapted room, which was excellent. The others... More

We wanted to stay within the wilpend Pound Park, so we thought that the Resort would be a great option. While the reviews were mixed, we were willing to give the place a go. We telephone from Hawker at about 3pm in the afternoon, hot, tired and dusty after a long road trip. We wanted the experience of staying in... More

Its amazing that it was not formed by Volcano but rather the shifting of 2... More

We stayed three nights in the ikara Safari tents. Absolutely stunning area and they have been well set up so you get a sense of privacy. The views were exquisite and for an east coaster I was appreciative of the air conditioning. The toilet and showers were great and the set up fabulous especially glad of he small fridge.. I... More

My brother and I visited Wilpena for a sibling reunion trip. It was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend this place!!

Stayed in the campground in a camper trailer for a week. Was in spring school holidays so quite busy but with plenty of space. This place is a great place for camping with some spectacular surrounds and a terrific spot to observe wildlife, go bushwalking(all levels) and for us some 4x4 adventure on the Skytrek. We love this place and... More

Located in the core of Flinders ranges adjoining Wilpena range, the drive n location of the hotel is amazing. The location is in so core of forests that kangaroos keep visiting resort on regular basis. Resort is 4 star but standards of 3 star. Restaurant was decent but rooms were bad. Heating was not proper and then bathroom was extremely... More
