The Kalpowar Crossing is a great campsite within the Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park. There are large sites and the camping area sits beside a large crossing with an abundance of water. There are drop toilets and cold showers. There is a boat ramp which can be used for small boats/dingies but beware that crocodiles inhabit this area so care must be taken. The road into this area is graded and not too difficult to travel.

Bookings MUST be made prior to arrival. Use the website above to find booking options, or use Self Service Counter, Lakefield Road, Laura, or by phone.

Stretch your legs on the Kalpowar discovery walk—an easy stroll that meanders along the river through thick vine forest and stretches of peaceful open woodland. Launch your boat from the causeway and spend a day fishing and exploring the Normanby River and its tributaries. Or jump in your car and explore the surrounding lagoons, rivers and historic sites.

Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park is closed throughout the wet season every year. Camping areas south of Lakefield ranger base are closed from 1 December to 31 May.
Camping areas north of the Lakefield ranger base are closed from 1 December to 30 June.
These dates vary each year depending on weather and road conditions.

Check park alerts for the latest information on access, closures and conditions.
