Located in the beautiful Yorke Peninsula on the south coast of South Australia, Barkers Rocks is located around a 10-minute drive from the small town of Minlaton. Barkers Rocks offers all the benefits of a camping ground on the coast including swimming and fishing. Be sure to take a walk on the Port Rickaby trail to admire the scenery fully.
The Barkers Rocks camping ground is very easy to access. The camping ground is located 13km northwest of Minlaton, with the turnoff approximately 5km from the sealed Rickaby road. A two-wheel drive and caravan can easily access the 5km gravel road.
The camping ground offers around five individual campsites. The best spot is to the left as you enter.
Given the location of the Barkers Rocks campground, it offers numerous activities. Activities available for campers include fishing and swimming in the gulf. There is limited access to the beach from the campground, making it difficult to launch any type of watercraft. The walking trail to Port Rickaby is well worth the walk.
Best Time To Go
Given the campground is located near the beach, it is recommended that the campground is visited during the warmer months.
