Purnong Campground - Murray River SA
Short weekend's camping - close to Adelaide
With a nice break in the weather forecast (amidst the usual wind and rain of May) we thought we'd go away for a quick trip close to home. Purnong is an hour and a half from the farm, near Morgan, on the River Murray South Australia,
As the MAN is not currently registered, we went back to the old fashioned way of camping using our Hilleberg tent, and loaded everything into the little Subaru Outback, including the dog.
The campsite is right on the river, and it's called "Lakeside". Cost is $20 per night for a couple and that gives you shower/toilet and firewood and an absolute river frontage location.
We went on a normal weekend (i.e. not school holidays) and there was only one other couple camping there, right away on the other side of the site.
There is a couple of KMs of dirt road to get to the site, but you'll get in there with a 2WD no problems.
The firepit is a little Snow Peak unit. Made of stainless steel and one of the best additions to our camping kit ever!
Not much more information to impart, so here's a few photos of the site:
