This is the only camping area at the northern end of Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park, so it gets busy in summer and bookings are essential. Sites are in bush alcoves 2 km outside the park. Most people are here to see the awe-inspiring scenery but there are also horse rides, ATVs and night-time spotlight tours on offer. This alpine country is notorious for its rapidly changing weather, so even in summer you’ll need to be equipped for rain and snow. The route is signposted from Sheffield. Take the C136 to Moina, turn left onto the C132 and left again after 21 km. The campground is 3 km along on the right.
