Desert Camp Conservation Reserve Rest Area is a free overnight rest area with good shade but no facilities. There is a large open gravel scape suitable for big rigs.
Desert Camp Conservation Reserve covers an area of around 900 hectares and is located between Padthaway and Willalooka along a section of the Naracoorte Range. Just North of the Coonawarra wine region.

The park has an abundance of wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, echidna and various species of bright, colourful birds. The park is also known for its hook shaped grass tree stems. They are usually straight but have some weird curves here.

The park contains a disused quarry that was once a source of grey-green granite. Some of the granite from here can be found on the floor of the international wing of Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport.

There is a track that follows the boundary of the park. The views from the top of the boundary track are spectacular on a clear day. An excellent, private place to spend the night.
