Camping fees

You must pay a fee in Northern Territory (NT) parks where camping is allowed.

The fee will depend on the campground facilities. Camping areas with more facilities are usually more expensive.

Fees for category A and B campgrounds are collected on-site.

Camping is on a first come, first served basis. You cannot book in advance unless you are planning to stay at a category C campground.

Generators and caravans are only allowed in certain campgrounds.
