On the Larapinta Trail, this popular campsite can be reached by conventional 2WD vehicles and has good facilities. The site is 7 km off Namatjira Dr, 128 km west of Alice Springs. A number of walking trails start and finish here, including the Ormiston Pound Circuit and the Ghost Gum Lookout walk, which finishes at a viewing platform over Ormiston Gorge.


This campsite is located in West MacDonnell National Park

Stretching 170 km across the West MacDonnell Ranges west of Alice Springs, this is one of the most visited parks in the Red Centre. Its highest peak is 1531 m Mount Zeil, in the far west, and its gorges contain beautiful waterholes, startling white ghost gums, and retreats for wildlife. The park is connected by the 223 km Larapinta Trail, as well as by a multitude of shorter walks. A world-class bicycle path also leads through the park from Alice Springs. Most of the park trailheads are accessible by 2WD.
