Been looking at WiKi Camps about the place as well as the NPWS site, its on my list if we head down that way later this year. Can't remember if it contained or not, don't think so though, Van park on edge of park and a camp just inside....Was planning on a night or 2 at Pooncarrie before Mungo.

We camped at Mungo NP two years ago. There is a toilet block there and showers at the visitors centre so I think you could get away without a grey water tank if you used the parks facilities. With our sink water we ran that into a bucket and watered the trees.

Yes we did a tour but I can’t remember how much it was. You get to go behind the fences and barricades where the non-paying public can’t access. The park ranger guide whose name might have been Don was an indigenous fella from that clan who is also a school teacher. His knowledge and stories were well worth the tour price.

Diddo on the tour. Did it a couple years back and well worth it. He also pulled out a guitar and sang a few songs indigenously.
We did notice the general public not on the tour all walling around the place and the rangers didn't seem too fussed, so not sure if you *need* to be on a guided tour thing.
We also used the showers at the visitor centre, long drop in the park and ran the hose off the sink to the trees. Same as what everyone else was doing. Maybe changed in the past 2 yrs?)
We got in about 4pm and the camping area was full (although some pricks were set up over 2 spots so they could have that little area to themselves) - snagged the last spot while others were still doing laps looking for the 'best' one.
