How much does it cost to stay in a caravan park in the Clare Valley?

Overnights stays in the Clare Valley range from $25 a night to $100+ depending on the type of accommodation and facilities that you’re looking for.

If you’re someone who prefers to take all their creature comforts on holiday with them, you’ll need to pay a little extra for the luxury in Clare Valley. Discovery Parks is one of the more expensive parks in the area, but caters to the more glamorous campers amongst us. Prices start from $27 for an unpowered site, $37 for a powered site and $93 for a cabin. These higher prices are justified by added extras like a jumping pillow, swimming pool and bike hires.

If you’d rather save your pennies, you’ll need to stay a little further away from the action. Towns like Riverton and Auburn are less than half-an-hour’s drive away from Clare, but offer up unpowered sites from as little as $18 a night.

How long can I stay in a caravan park in the Clare Valley?

Popular caravan parks like Discovery Parks Clare Valley will only allow stays of up to 28 days. If you’re hoping to extend your stay by a few weeks, or even a few months, long-stay parks including Leasingham Village Cabins offer special rates for long-term visitors.

What should I consider when choosing a caravan park in the Clare Valley?

Sites and attractions in the Clare Valley are relatively spread out, which means choosing a caravan park based on its location isn’t too important. Instead, it’s essential to choose a park that has all of the facilities you’ll need to enjoy your stay. For example, if you’re looking for a park with plenty of activities to keep the children entertained, Discovery Parks is the only caravan park in the area with a jumping pillow and playground. Alternatively, if you’re looking for somewhere to get lost in the great outdoors, staying at the Auburn Community Caravan Park will give you the run of the roost.

Where can I park a campervan overnight in the Clare Valley?

While sleeping on the side of the road in your campervan isn’t illegal in South Australia, the rules do vary between local councils. To avoid any nasty fines, the safest option is to find a designated space to park up in either in a caravan park, campsite or free camp.

While a caravan park will provide all of the comforts you need including hot showers and flushing toilets, free camps are great for those working on a budget.
