Leichhardt Lagoon Camping Park
Located just 24kms sout east of Normanton on the Gulf Development road (part of the Savannah Way), this lovely camping area is on private property and is part of a small station.
It is a large camp area located 800 metres off the highway and is in a natural bush setting near the Norman River. There are plenty of shady places to camp and the setting is very scenic but if can be dusty at times.
If planning to visit here in the winter months it is a good idea to phone ahead and reserve a spot as it is a very popular place at that time of year. The campsite is closed during the wet season.
There are no powered sites available here but generators are allowed which can make things a little noisy if there are a lot of people camping.
