This 4WD-access camping area is off Namatjira Dr. No generators are allowed and you need to bring firewood, a gas/fuel stove and drinking water. Quiet and secluded, it has dispersed bush camping sites along the track to Serpentine Chalet Ruins. The walk from the end of the road is pleasant and ends at an old dam and reservoir near the mouth of the 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.
