Full closure of Murray River National Park
Published: 02 March 2023
Flood waters are now slowly starting to recede, allowing for areas on higher ground in Katarapko to be reopened. However, most of our wetlands and floodplains will remain flooded or inaccessible for some time. Therefore, all campsites and almost all access roads/tracks remain closed.Katarapko campground — Partially open for Day Visiting only (refer to maps). Day Visitors are welcome in Katarapko but please ensure you remain on established roads and tracks. Driving off-road will cause more damage to the environment and park infrastructure, possibly extending the closure period for the remaining areas of the Park. A fine is also possible.
Closed Areas — Lock 4 entrance, Draper Rd, and Eckert Creek entrance, bottom end of Craggs Road, Lock 4 Road and Katarapko Way. All walking and bike trails with the exception of Craggs Hut Walking Trail
Open Areas- Katarapko Creek entrance from Katarapko Crescent, Craggs Road from the entrance to just past campsites 42 – 44, and Mallee Track. Limited access also to boat launch and car park areas along Craggs Road
Lyrup Flats campground —
Strictly no vehicle access, no camping allowed. Visitors may still access these areas by walking, bike riding, canoe or small boat if safe to do so. Please remain on established roads and tracks.

Ranger staff are currently assessing the damage and risk caused by the flood in all of our parks. The priority is to fix up roads and campsites and have some of them open soon for day visiting only. Campsite clean-up will take months and they will only reopen when safe to do so. Danggali Conservation Park remains open with campsites available for booking. Pooginook and Cooltong Conservation Parks are also great places to spend the day.
If you have a booking, please contact the Berri Regional Office on 85952111 or email DEW.RMonlinebookings@sa.gov.au to request a refund or rebook for another time.
