Top 3 Caravan Parks in South Australia
Planning on checking out the magnificent region of South Australia? How about doing it in style with your very own caravan trip? Just imagine the amount of fun that you can have with your family not only during the travel, but also in the beautiful caravan parks that are spread across the region.You should definitely check them out, if you can manage the trip and if you have adequate time on your hands.
Modern day caravans allow you to bring along the little luxuries of home with caravan awnings providing instant shade whenever you want, and caravan annexes giving you your personal space even when you are parked up somewhere. Isn’t that great? It is like living in a mobile home, where each moment brings a new surprise. This is what makes me want to return to caravanning once I have returned from a trip.
Here are the top 3 Caravan Parks in South Australia. Make sure that you include them in your map the next time you head out on your family caravan holiday. Trust me, it will definitely be worth it.
Adelaide Shores Caravan Park

If you are on the lookout for amazing accommodation in a community lifestyle environment, then the Adelaide Shores Caravan Park is the place to be. You can choose to live in one of the 108 cabins that are provided at this place. But this doesn’t come close to living in your own caravan. Just pick either an ensuite package or a powered caravan site and enjoy your private camping space with your family.
There are over 350 powered caravan sites in the park with no unpowered site available. BBQs, heated swimming pools, a Games Room, and kids play equipment are just some of the perks that are provided by the park.

Ceduna Shelly Beach Caravan Park

Located on the Far West Coast of Australia, the Ceduna Shelly Beach Caravan Park features one of the most pristine coastlines in the world today. Just the thought of walking on the warm sunny sands and feeling the refreshing waters rejuvenating your souls is enough to make any one excited to visit this place at least once.
This holiday park has gained recognition as the Oyster Capital of Australia and you can find an abundance of oysters in the waters here. The oysters in this region are huge and temptingly delicious. Just make your way to one of the oyster farms at Daniel Bay.
When you are done checking out the beautiful oysters, head over to the head of the Bright for some spectacular whale watching. If you happen to visit this place between April and September, then you could be one of the fortunate ones to see the whales calve their young.
There are over 40 powered caravan sites in the park with 10 unpowered site available. BBQs, children’s area, a Games Room, and camper’s kitchen are just some of the perks that are provided by the park. This is a pet friendly caravan park so don’t forget to bring along your four-legged buddies. After all, they too deserve a vacation with the family!
This park provides adequate exploration opportunities with over 55 acres of natural coastal reserve and a beach frontage that is almost a kilometre long. You definitely need to include this holiday park in your itinerary. Watch the wonders of nature unfold before your very eyes in this bountiful paradise.
Barossa Valley Tourist Park
Rating: 4.8 / 5
Cabins: Starting from $34
Caravans / Sites: Starting from $62
Tents: Starting from $29
This peaceful and shady 4 star park, located 70 km North of Adelaide, is a site-only holiday park which means that caravanners have the most to enjoy here. For those who are in search of cabins, they should seek out other places. The staff here are really cheerful and extend warm hospitality to all the guests here. They are always keen on helping out others with any assistance that they may require.
Major attractions for this place include bike trails, restaurants and the world class wineries for which Barossa is known for. But in my opinion, the best site in this park is Coulthard Reserve. The Reserve is known for its unique Bush Chapel which has an Australian touch to its setting and is a preferred spot for bridal parties. For the socially connected individuals, this park provides free Wi-Fi which is available throughout the place. So you can stay in touch with your social network and enjoy nature’s pristine offerings at the same time.
There are over 150 powered caravan sites in the park with 20 unpowered site available. BBQs, children’s area, resident manager, and camper’s kitchenare just some of the perks that are provided by the park. This is a pet friendly caravan park and you can bring along your pets. Just make sure you understand the pet rules that are implemented in the park. You would not want to offend anyone or create a scene, thereby spoiling the fun for others and yourself.
