Caravan & Holiday Parks
Treat yourself to waterfront views out towards Boston Island and Lincoln National Park at Port Lincoln Tourist Park.

The playground, jetty, boat ramp and easy beach access will keep all ages entertained during your stay.
For a quiet and convenient stay within walking distance to the town centre, stay at the Port Lincoln Cabin Park. The self-contained cabins accommodate two to five people with full cooking facilities and air conditioning.
Find Coffin Bay Caravan Park on the Esplanade of Coffin Bay overlooking the water. Accommodation ranges from standard, en suite and deluxe cabins to over 130 large powered and unpowered sites spread across 12 hectares that suit caravans, campers, motorhomes and tents. Expect to spot the resident emus that wander the park at whim too.
Camping & Glamping
For an uncrowded camping destination head to the south-eastern tip of the Eyre Peninsula to camp alongside sheltered coves, deserted beaches and tucked away within Mallee scrub in Lincoln National Park. One of the most coveted campsites can be found at Memory Cove Wilderness Protection Area. The rugged coastal wilderness is only accessible via 4WD and a key is required to access the site. Here, sugar-white sand meets the calm turquoise waters of the bay and with only five allocated campsites on offer you can expect to have it mostly to yourself. For a full rundown on the 14 campgrounds located throughout the park visit the Parks SA site here.
Stay at one of two glamping sites in Lincoln National Park on September Beach with Kata & Belle. The Fairy Wren site is located alongside the beach and sleeps up to eight people within two safari-style tents, while the Sea Eagle site is elevated on a hill with views of the ocean and sleeps four people.
Surfers, anglers and birdwatchers will quickly feel at home in Coffin Bay National Park. There are seven campgrounds located within the park, all of which require a 4WD to access with the exception of Yangie Bay campgrounds.
Spot koalas snuggled into the nooks of manna gums as you set up camp on the native bushland of Mikkira Station Koala Sanctuary on the Eyre Peninsula. Public camping is available on the private property with a permit and key that is organised through Visit Port Lincoln.
