Facilities: Bins and a picnic table. No toilet facilities
Lake Hart is basically a rest stop half way between Port Augusta and Coober Pedy. It has no facilities but overnight stays are permitted. It does get extremely busy, so we suggest you arrive by mid afternoon to get a spot. Those arriving late in the day needed to camp on the side of the access road to the rest stop.
Dogs and camp fires are permitted in season.
This camp has amazing views over one of the most accessible salt lakes on the Stuart Highway. It is an easy walk down to the lake from the campground. When we were there the salt surface was extremely hard and vividly white. Standing on this vast salt lake leaves you feeling a little humbled and insignificant, although in reality, this is one of the smaller salt lakes in the Australian Outback.
Sunset views from camp are beautiful and the thousands of stars above us made this camp, with no facilities, still up the top as one of our favourites.
It’s all about location.
