Yorke Peninsula Council is looking to add two new lakeside campgrounds to its Bush Camping system.

The Council has identified spaces at Pink Lake and Lake Fowler – two key locations among the 200-odd salt lakes in the Yorketown area – that could be used as official campgrounds in the near future.

Both are along the Yorke Peninsula Salt Lake Trail, a tourist trail opened in 2021 which has resulted in increased visitation, including by recreational vehicles.

Mayor Darren Braund said with changes planned following this summer to deal with overcrowding at the 19 existing Bush Camps, it was timely to add more camping sites to accommodate the many people who enjoy visiting Yorke Peninsula for camping.
