Maguk Campground - Kakadu National Park

National Park - Northern Territory


Turn off Kakadu Highway at GPS -13.2552, 13.3685 and follow unsealed road until you reach the campground.

Bush camping at its best, Maguk offers quiet surrounds a short walk from one of Kakadu’s most popular plunge pools.

This is the perfect place to stay before heading off for a day of waterplay in Maguk’s stunning plunge pools. Reach the pools via a 1 km walk through lush monsoon rainforest and across a rocky creek bed.

Then head back to camp when you’re ready for a feed and a Kakadu sunset!

This bush campground has composting toilets.  Alcohol is not permitted.  BYO drinking water.

This is a lovely camp area. The road in is designated four wheel drive but is drivable with two wheel drive. Just be aware that there are a few areas of heavy corrugations and a rocky dry river bed crossing. This is in the dry season, of course. Camping bays are situated amongst the trees and the usual National Parks honesty payment system applies. The campsite is a kilometre and a half away from car park where the walk starts for the plunge pool and falls. It is then a further kilometre of walking to get there. It is well worth the effort. It is also possible to walk up to the top of the falls to some rock pools and where there are great views. The only facilities at the campsite are toilets.
