No free camping on Yorke Peninsula SA.


There are very few legal free camps on YP now, $10 per night at all of the coastal camps and rangers patrol em quite actively, no wonder SA has always been on the verge of bankruptcy, they seem to do their utmost to discourage visitors.no

 So Santa, Do you think it all should be for free ??  I quietly take umbrage to your  opinion of SA  and I divulge that I am south aussie  born  and raised.

Yes we would all like everything for nothing , but these days with our attitudes of wanting everything provided some one has to pay.  Tracks have to be graded, areas have to be cleared of rubbish, and SES and emergency services have to be on standby at all time.  So if you cant afford $10 per day to stay in a picturesque part of SA with good clean air, good fishing, and not over crowded like the East coast, then either you are  tight wad or too poor to travel and should stay at home.   SA is  an undiscovered gem for a lot of travellers, with the magnificent Flinders ranges, Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas, the wonderful Barossa valley and McLaren Vale wine regions, the Adelaide Hills and Strathalbyn,  the majestic river Murray, the coorong ,  the South East with its caves and lakes, KI and the Fleurieu plus the outback with places such as Innamincka, Coober Pedy etc.  And with all that there are plenty of places to stop overnight at NO COST.    Cheers Daz

Cheers  Daz

Simply a heads up Dazz, your welcome to your opinion, I've expressed mine.

"either you are  tight wad or too poor to travel and should stay at home." nope, wife and I traveled to the US twice in 2016, another trip booked later in 2017.

We get around a bit in our motor home as well, that's a pic of us in my avatar, camped North of Port Augusta on the way to WA via NT.

You know, I was going to expand further, but really cant be bothered, thanks for taking the time to reply. wink

My point is I have everything to stay out there for Atleast 2 weeks . Including grey and black water . Why should I pay rent when I don't need to? Don't expect anything for free . Next truckies will be charged to stop overnight ?

I too am SA born & raised & have travelled to various areas of the YP on at least 4 occasions & I totally agree with Guru. As far as being "too poor to travel if you can't afford to pay $10/night", why should we when we've already invested thousands of $'s on tanks, solar, batteries etc.
A lot of money has been invested in my rig to make it fully SC & certified Leave No Trace for free camping & I don't see why I should have to pay again to do that.
As far as maintaining the roads goes, I haven't seen any evidence of that on YP. The roads are the worst I've encountered & I've now sworn I will never go back. Scenic dirt roads are a corrugated nightmare & the bitumen isn't much better. Even the roads I went on in the lower Flinders were heaps better.
There are some stunning places on YP if they would just provide some decent roads & a few free camps here & there it'd be great.

I live in South Australia, born, worked all my life here, paid my taxes and yes this State is going into Bankruptcy under this Labor and prior Labor Governments.  I am about to depart forever.

As far as the Yorke Peninsula, I can think of a thousand places to camp.  If I am asked to pay something, it wouldn't be $10 per night!!
