Changes to campsite and accommodation bookings
Forest campsites and accommodation venues are now available to book online 365 days in advance!
From 1 July 2023, online bookings became available for the 12 months ahead, with dates opening up incrementally as each days passes.
Please note that the length of our annual camping season will remain unchanged (1 April to 30 November annually), but we know most of you will appreciate the chance to book ahead!
For those keen to use a camp spot or accommodation venue for an event, applications will also be accepted via the website for 2024.
About our forest accommodation
ForestrySA manages a range of private hut, cottage and camp shelter accommodation venues within its Mount Lofty Ranges forests.
All sites are available for overnight stays during the annual camping season. Bookings must be made online. Please scroll down to view our accommodations options, check availability and secure your stay.
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 to 30 November annually.
Wood fires are permitted from 1 May – 31 October annually. (These dates may change in seasons where high fire danger persists).
Planning a group activity at one of our sites?
A wide variety of community and private events are held at our Mount Lofty Ranges and Green Triangle recreation sites each year.
If you are planning a group activity such as orienteering, a school or Scout camp, group walk or bike ride, you must submit an event application and map of planned forest routes.
All applications must be submitted at least four weeks prior to the proposed event or activity and will be reviewed by a forest Ranger for approval on a case-by-case basis.
The forest is closed to the public on declared Total Fire Ban days. To report a fire, call 000.
For fire ban information phone 1800 362 361 or visit the CFS website. Being aware of a Total Fire Ban is your responsibility.
Fire is prohibited on ForestrySA land between November 1 and April 30 in any year. (These dates may be extended in areas where high fire danger persists).
