Location: about 10 km north of the Flinders Highway. The turn-off to Canns Camp Creek camping area is at the Finders Shire Council truck and rest stop (look for the toilets, tables and chairs), approximately 11 km west of the Burra Range lookout on the Flinders Highway. It is recommended you pull into the rest stop— the turn-off can be difficult to see from the highway, especially if there are large vehicles parked at the rest stop.
