We have camped in this park many, many times over the last 50 years or so and these pictures were taken in August 2017 when we last visited. The park is extensive and has plenty of room for unpowered caravans and camping under the native pine trees and campfire pit rings are sited in many camp sites throughout the park. The amenities block we used was in reasonably good condition, as was the outside camp kitchen located nearby. It appears that the park is now being managed directly by the Adnyamathanha aboriginal people and several caravans in the park are annexed off in a flagged area to accommodate some employees it seems. The park is an ideal "jumping off point" if you want to trek into the Pound and bushwalk many of the mountain tracks. However if you intend to spend most of the time exploring the many Gorges, scenic drives and other points of interest in the Flinders Ranges, even as far up as Blinman or Parachilna, I would recommend staying at the Rawnsley Park camp ground a few kms South of Wilpena Pound entrance.
