List of NT campgrounds

This page has a list of campgrounds in the Northern Territory (NT).

Some campgrounds are privately managed and you can pay your camping fees directly to the campground manager when you arrive.

The majority of campgrounds however rely on an honesty system. You are asked to put your money in an envelope into the honesty box at the entrance to the camp ground.

Some campgrounds are only accessible by four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicle.
