Maize Island Lagoon Conservation Park

Bush Camping - South Australia


Maize Island Conservation Park provides the ideal habitat for a variety of bird and reptile species and is also home to families of western grey kangaroos.

Enjoy camping on the banks of the Murray River and fish along the cliffs and river banks for dinner. Go for a morning walk, keeping an eye out for species of wrens, honeyeaters and birds of prey and see if you can capture them on camera.

Although there are many vehicle tracks throughout the park, driving off the main track that follows the river is not permitted. The park is accessible to 2WD vehicles, however some sections of the main track are sandy or can become slippery when wet.

Free bush camping sites are available along the riverfront and are under the care of the District Council of Loxton Waikerie.

There are no facilities within the park, so you must come fully prepared

  • Bring your own drinking water.
  • Camp fires are not allowed during fire danger season (1 November to 15 April).
  • Use designated fire places and bring your own firewood. Collection of firewood within the park is not allowed.
  • Leave your dog at home as they are not allowed in the park.
  • Take your rubbish with you as there are no bins in the park
With our 7m 2wd I walked the track first. Found a suitable spot near the main track.

Heaps of tracks along the Murray to find a camp right beside the river. Some of the tracks are quite sandy but were fine for my wizzbang. Be cautious with bigger, heavier vehicles. Very peaceful - I can hear fish jumping!
