After a much quicker, and less scheduled drive to the top of the Yorke Peninsula to the Kadina Christmas Parade, we had a bit of time to kill before heading to Victor Harbour for Christmas. We’d thoroughly enjoyed Moonta Bay on our way down, and decided to leave the Kadina Showgrounds and head 15 minutes back down to Moonta, and to spend a night at the Moonta RV overnight stop area, if there was space available.
Where is the Moonta RV overnight stop area?
You’ll find this place a short walk into Moonta itself, and about 6 minutes drive to the Moonta Bay Jetty and water Park. It’s located with houses surrounding the large majority of it, on a big oval with plenty of room to pull up.
What amenities are there?
I was expecting the Moonta RV overnight stay to have no amenities at all, but it has a dump point, rubbish bins and water taps. I’m not sure if the water is potable, but did see someone filling up there (so hopefully it is!).
What does it cost?
This is a donation camp, which means it costs whatever you are prepared to donate. The money goes towards keeping the place maintained though, so don’t drive out without dropping something in. We donated $10, as that’s what we paid at the Kadina Showgrounds, and this is probably equal, or even a bit better.
Do you need to collect your grey water?
The sign upon arrival says ‘self contained vehicles’. Now, there’s a bit of controversy as to what that means, but in this location I believe you can sensibly and respectfully let your grey water out onto the grass, or a nearby tree.
There is certainly nothing saying to the contrary, and I believe this is the most sensible way of dealing with grey water!
Is it worth a stay?
We really enjoyed our one night at the Moonta RV overnight stay. There’s heaps of room, the town is great, the Total Splash water park at Moonta Bay is free and awesome, and we even spent a couple of hours in the Moonta Bay Library when it was raining and thundering, playing with the different toys and reading books with the kids.
Overall, Moonta is an awesome place, and we’d highly recommend it.
