The Narrung Jetty Reserve is a lakeside camping area near the settlement of Narrung, right beside the huge Lake Alexandrina.
This is a spacious large flat camping area with plenty of grassed sites suitable for caravans and big rigs.
The area offers a 72hour maximum stay, with toilets, mobile phone service, and fishing from a small jetty right at the campground.
HOW TO GET THERE
Take Poltalloch Road off the Princes Highway 31km SOuth of Tailem Bend. To access the camping area a ferry is used to cross a small section of the waterway, this ferry is suitable for big rigs and is free to use. Alternatively use Princes Highway to Meningie then along Narrung Road around Lake Albert, however, it will take more time to do this road. It is a great loop road either way.
