Level Post Bay was named by Warren Bonython in 1949 when he used a "level post" to monitor water levels in the "great flood of 1949 - 50". At or near this point the water reaches the greatest depth when Lake Eyre North floods, as occurred during 1974 – 75, when a water depth of 6.6m was recorded.

The Level Post Bay Track has been a popular PAR (public access route) enabling visitors to drive to this point. However it was closed to the public due to a dispute over the grading of the track.
Update July 2022. Track is open for shoreline access. From SA Parks: Level Post Bay Public Access Route – Open to 4WD - It is a bush track, not a road. Drive with caution along the entire track as the landscape is fragile and the track will deteriorate with the number of vehicles using it. Please drive to track conditions. Driving on the Lake surface is an offence and dangerous. Trailers and caravans are not recommended.
