What is self contained camping?  Put simply, it means leaving nothing behind, so you need the ability to take any waste with you, including general rubbish, toilet waste and any water used, for appropriate disposal elsewhere. The expectation is that caravans or motorhomes will have their own toilet and shower, and a tank to collect and confine waste water. 

 If you are thinking about coming to Yorke Peninsula and are a fully self contained camper, there are plenty of places with dump points, as well as places to fill your water tanks.  We even have a few spots where you can stay overnight absolutely free!
