Suggested duration: More than 3 hours
Old Sturt Hwy, Berri, South Australia 5343, Australia
Berri is at the northern end of the Murray River National Park,
The Katarapko section.
The park is one of the Riverland’s most popular park for camping, fishing and kayaking.
A perfect place to rest and relax.
A great National Park setting on Katarapko Creek - part of the River Murray with camp sites on the rivers edge. Great for family, fishers or bird watchers. Just out of Berri with easily defined camp sites. Make sure you book before arriving but a...More
Katarapko Creek is just so peaceful. All the campsites are spread along the creek so you're not camping right next to someone else. We're locals and our favourite campsite is only 20 minutes drive from Berri.
We like paddling on Katarapko creek rather than the...More
Just off the Sturt Highway between Barmera and Waikerie is a lazy undiscovered stretch of The Murray at Wigley Flat.
You can go for miles either up or downstream without another boat in view for days. Lots of spectacular cliffs, beaches and river gums with...More
What a find..with an array of camp sites along the river with shady secluded settings to park your van or pitch a tent. Watch the height with bigger vans as low hanging trees in sine locations. Great place for kayaking and fishing and in the...More
Excellent camping at spots on the river, take a map, study it, look for concave bends so you'll have a sandy beach and shallow water for swimming. You don't always need a 4wd, but go slow and don't take risks. Inform people where you are...More
Katarapko in the Murray River National Park is a favourite camping and kayaking spot for us. There are plenty of sites sitting alongside the river, which never seem to be busy even on bank holidays. Katarapko Creek is great for kayaking as there are very...More

HI Jen, there isn't an absolute prohibition on generators in the Murray River National Park (Katarapko is one section of the park), but the basic guideline is that they can't be disturbing other campers in any way. Therefore only very quiet generators are allowed, and not during the evening/night. I.e. It would be OK to have a quiet generator for cooking tea, but not running after that. Bear in mind that noise travels a long way on a still evening. As an example, I was once visiting people camped on Katarapko Creek and there was music coming from the direction of of the island. It wasn't real loud, but unnecessary background noise when you'd prefer to enjoy the sounds of nature in the evening, Was a bit confusing as there didn't seem to be anyone camped on the island so we took a look at the map. We realised that Katarapko Island was only 1km wide at that point and the music was from people camped on a river sandbar the other side of the island! The unwritten rule for all noise is consideration for others. Therefore park rangers could issue a fine for noisy generators or for having them going during the evening/night. Long explanation, but hope it helps.
