The Imintji community is located on the Gibb River Road 220km east of Derby. The campground has 20 camping sites which were completed in 2016 and planning is underway for a further 30 sites.  The campground has hot showers and flushing toilets, a BBQ shelter with gas-fired hot plates, shaded seating and a lawn area with formal fire pits.

The Imintji camp ground is the realisation of long-held vision and aspiration of community members.  For many years community elder Jack Dale had a vision for a visitor campground near to the community that would allow visitors to share the sights and the sounds of the country, and create the opportunity for locals to generate income and employment from the land.  This would both benefit the land and secure a future for Imintji people through community development enterprise.

Jack Dale's vision is now carried on by family members. The campground currently employs two community members who alternate their shifts so that for seven days a week the camp ground is serviced and visitors are welcomed.  A further two are employed in the roadhouse, with two at the art gallery and two more at the APT/KWA safari camp. The benefits of embracing tourism are now being realised at Imintji.
