Where can I park a campervan overnight in Port Elliot?

If you're on a budget, however, you can choose the more affordable options of campsites or free camps.

The nearby Coorong National Park is known for its picturesque free camping spots, but you'll need a 4WD to access most of them.

While it's not strictly illegal to pull over on the side of the road, or in a car park for the night, South Australia does implement certain rules about camping near beaches and in parks. This varies depending on the local council, so it's best to look out for information signs in the car park of your choice or call the council ahead of time to double-check the rules.
