The Cooper Creek Rest Area has plenty of room for any size rig with good amenities. It is located either side of the highway and either side of Cooper Creek. Facilities on northern side of the Diamantina Developmental Road and eastern side of Cooper Creek.
Camping seems most popular on the south of the river and west of the road, on the gravel flats beside the river. However, more private and scenic camp spots are available on either side of the bridge and either side of the roadway. It is a good plan to scout it out for your perfect spot first. Great for canoeing, fishing and relaxing, but the yabbies are a bit scarce. Firewood is also scarce so collect some along the way before you arrive. Very peaceful and relaxing spot for a few days stopover.

Cooper Creek was named by Charles Sturt in 1845 after Charles Cooper who was a Chief Justice of South Australia. Sturt commented that he would have named it a river, but for the fact that it had no current.

The channel country out here is very flat and the fall along the length of Cooper Creek is minimal, resulting in stagnant water except when it floods.
