Guests booking powered sites can take a look at the campground map and choose a preferred site before booking online.

Wilpena Pound Resort Director Darren Godwell said he was pleased to be safely reopening the campground to welcome back visitors from around South Australia.

“We hope we will see people setting off on road trips for some fresh air and wide-open spaces, to return to Wilpena Pound or discover it for the first time,” Mr Godwell said.

“While the hotel, restaurant and glamping at Ikara Safari Camp remain closed for now, the new IGA Xpress general store and onsite petrol station are open for our guests and travellers in the region.”

Wilpena Pound is a spectacular natural amphitheatre spanning 17km in length and 7km in width, shaped by the weathering and uplifting of land over time and holding important cultural significance for the Indigenous Adnyamathanha people. The resort comprises a 52-room hotel, Ikara Safari Camp with 15 tented pavilions and a large campground with state-of-the-art facilities.
