Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When I glance at the local guide I saw that there were a couple of short (3-7km) options in this park. So, off from Victor Harbour we set (about 30 min drive) with two teenagers. We are all fit and used to exercise and when offered the options of short and very steep or longer but flatter, the family voted for the first option.
When you start by walking down, and down and down you can’t help but let your mind wander to the return trip.
It is short (1.7km in) and it is steep. You will be thinking about where to put your foot with every step and sliding down hills on your bum and rock climbing for short sections is part of the track.
The cove itself was a little unremarkable but we all enjoyed some stillness and reflection time before the return trip.

Do not attempt this walk if you have an injury or heart problems. Make sure you have your asthma puffer and water. Take photos of the steep bits to show your friends!

This review is specifically for the Tapanappa campground rather than the Deep Creek Conservation Park in general. Tapanappa campground is my favourite of all the Deep Creek campgrounds as it is small, offers privacy and has lovely views nearby. Unfortunately it suffers from the same problems as many other DEWNR campgrounds throughout the state in that it offers very little in the way of visitor amenities. There is no potable water, no rubbish bins, no tables or chairs, no showers, no BBQs, no visitor information detailing nearby attractions etc. Instead, the first thing visitors will notice is the array of signs threatening heavy fines for a range of infractions – very unwelcoming. Those camping in tents should be aware that many of the sites are very rocky, uneven and sloping. Sadly, the absence of rubbish bins has led to the campground being littered with trash which significantly detracts from the otherwise lovely bush setting. Basically this campground is just a few rough clearings in the bush with a drop toilet in the middle and is a very poor offering by international standards.

We spent the night in the Campground in the National Park and was absolutly beautiful! Kangaroos everywhere and lots of birds. In the morning we walked the little trekking to the waterfalls, about 2 hours return, quite easy and cool walk but a bit dry landscape. Probably not the best month to visit the waterfall😓!

Note you need a SA Parks Pass to visit
10$ a day/car or 90$ for year : online or at certain places ie Delware General Store

Easy and Tough Hiking : and amazing place
12 or 6 km and 3 diff terrains so pretty
Bring sturdy boots and walking poles if you plan the longer/tougher hikes
Winter makes for lots of greenery & wildlife but some slippery slopes

Would never book a site online again after booking site num 5 claimed to be suitable for tent , camper , caravan , the photo appeared to show a leval enough site , but once we arrived we scanned the site for the best position to set up our small rear door pop top that we needed to erect our rear annex on to increase our sleeping space .
although the site was huge the only place that we could have set up was across the entrance of the site , making it very hard to get he car out .
We are experiened campers and carry a good selection of levelling blocks ,but our annex would have been either hanging like a bed sheet on a washing line or half crumpled on the ground . We have used many N.P. site around OZ. with no problems but I would advise you not to book before you look at stringbark.
We did not attempt to set up but instead moved off to Rapid bay and paid again .
I hope our lost booking fee can be put to good use a fund making the site description more accurate and include words like uneven ,unlevel ,sloping , inclined .

Deep Creek Conservation park is a large wilderness area surrounded by agricultural properties (sheep and cattle mostly) on South Australia's Fleureui Peninsula. The park's entire southern coastline is part of S.A. statewide marine park areas ('Encounter Marine Park'). Most parts of the park are accessible on gravel roads in conventional vehicles (although I'd be careful about visiting in wet weather just because of the nature of wet dirt roads..). There are a couple of areas only accessible to 4WD/AWD vehicles.
The park is perfect for wildlife and bird watching, walking, picnics as well as just taking in the stunning scenery. There are designated camping areas too (req. booking+fees) if that takes your fancy.
It is one of Adelaide's southern gems as far as I'm concerned.
(we only have a light duty AWD and have never had any problem accessing anywhere in the park in dry weather)

We stayed at the Stringybark camp site. There are well made fire pits, excellent hot showers, toilets and washing up facilities. The we stayed at site 16 it was perfect. Spent the evening around a campfire and the days watching the kangaroos, kookaburras and some cheeky little birds with bright red chests. The sites are far enough apart to feel quiet separated from other campers. that being said the other groups were friendly and very well mannered. Recommend doing the Wildflower walk down to Blowhole Beach. It is steep and a little challenging but very rewarding.

Beautiful spot at blowhole beach.
And a 4WD track down to the beach too with stunning views over to Kangaroo Island.

Lovely drive up the country road to get to Deep Creek Conservation Park where you will be greeted by kangaroos in their natural habitat. The plus point is the view. In the background you will see the beautiful coastline of Fleurieu Peninsula. If you like going off beaten tracks, photographing picturesque landscapes, and being away from hustle bustle of life, then this is the place to go to.
