Camping and accommodation season opening delayed

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ForestrySA’s 2020 camping and accommodation season has been delayed until further notice.

ForestrySA is closely following Government direction and advice to protect the health and safety of our community and employees.

As a result, the 2020 camping season has been delayed until further notice.

This means no overnight camping or accommodation is available in ForestrySA Reserves. Picnic areas are also closed.

We will monitor and reassess as the situation as it evolves.

Thank you for your understanding.


ForestrySA manages a range of private hut, cottage and camp shelter accommodation venues within its Mount Lofty Ranges forests.

All venues are located within the picturesque bush setting of the Kuitpo and Mount Crawford Forest Reserves – the ideal spot to soak up the great outdoors.

All venues are available to book from 1 April – 30 November, outside of the fire danger season. *Please note the 2020 accommodation season has been delayed until further notice due to Covid-19.

Wood fires are permitted from 1 May – 31 October annually. (These dates may change in seasons where high fire danger persists).
