Situated on the banks of the River Murray, Clayton Bay Riverside Holiday Park is a tranquil, relaxing tourist destination.

Nestled on the shores of a picturesque bay, surrounded by shady trees and abundant birdlife, Clayton Bay Riverside Holiday Park offers a range of accommodation options for travellers and holiday makers, including powered and unpowered sites, and our luxury Boatman’s Cabin.

The small, peaceful riverside town of Clayton Bay is located one hour’s drive from Adelaide, and 12 km up-river from the historic river port town of Goolwa.

Our park is an ideal location for water based activities. The river and surrounding sheltered bays offer exceptional kayaking, canoeing, sailing, motor boating, water-skiing and wakeboarding.

Within the park exists two shallow, protected bays with sandy river floor beneath, offering a safe swimming area even for the youngest of travellers, whilst anglers both big and small can take the opportunity for a spot of fishing. The park offers a small range of kayaks for use by patrons, free of charge.

Nature lovers will appreciate the abundant birdlife, stunning sunsets, waterside walking trails and the warmth of your own private campsite fire in the cooler months. Fire pits are available for hire for the small fee of $5 per stay.

Spotless shower/toilet block with disabled access
