Black Box Campground - Murray River National Park

National Park - South Australia


Overlook the Murray’s major backwaters and rest under the shade of the river red gums at the campgrounds around the park. There are three campgrounds at both Katarapko (Booky Cliffs, Lock 4 and Causeway) and Lyrup Flats (Colligans, Tea Tree and Blackbox) which are well-equipped for campers and include toilet facilities. Boat access is available at some camp sites, as well as easy access to several of the park’s walking trails.  At this campsite, you will need to watch out for the low trees.

Come and explore the three separate areas that make up Murray River National Park. Katarapko, Lyrup Flats and Bulyong Island cover more than 13,000 hectares and conserve the verdant Murray wetlands that flow through the park.

The Katarapko area features floodplains and several wetlands. The area is an important breeding area for native wildlife, including waterbirds, and is an ideal place for birdwatching.

Lyrup Flats encompasses 2,000 hectares along the floodplain on the northern side of the river and provides wonderful opportunities for birdwatching and fishing. You can take your dog for a walk in the Lyrup Flats area of the park providing it is on a lead.

Bulyong Island is only accessible by boat. The island is home to a number of wildlife species, such as the western grey kangaroos, emus, pelicans, kingfishers and parrots.
