Thurra River and Mueller Inlet Campgrounds

Croajingolong National Park

Information for Campers

Please refer to the Parks Victoria “Croajingolong National Park” Park notes for information on the park and its facilities. The road into the campground is suitable for 2 wheel drive vehicles but has a 20 km unsealed section which requires cautious driving.

No booking is necessary for campsites except from late December through to the end of January and for the Easter school holiday period. At other times of the year, select a vacant campsite and make yourself comfortable. The Campground Managers will visit you in the early evening to arrange your camping permits, sell firewood and answer any questions you may have.

Camp fees are payable to the manager (or in the honesty box) and must be paid by cash or cheque; no credit card/EFTPOS facility is available.

Bookings

Requests for campsites during booking periods (Easter and Christmas school holiday periods only) can only be made on the booking application form downloadable from the following links:

Campsite Bookings December/January

A ballot for these sites will be held at a specified date.

Limited overnight sites may also be available for campers requiring a 1-2 single night stay during this time. These sites cannot be booked and are allocated on a ‘first come‘ basis.

Amenities

It is recommended that you bring you own drinking water. The river water maybe suitable for drinking but ideally should be boiled before hand. River water can be used for washing but no detergent may enter the water course. Dispose of waste water away from the river to allow it to filter through the soil. 

Fire pits with hotplates are available at Thurra River in communal cooking areas where picnic tables are also available. No open fires are allowed on individual campsites but gas stoves may be used. Firewood can be purchased from the manager (who visits each day) and please do not collect wood from the surrounding forest as it provides habitat for local flora and fauna. 

Gas stoves only at Mueller River with no open fires permitted.

Pit toilets are located through both campgrounds and toilet paper is supplied.

Please keep abreast of Total Fire Bans in the hotter months to ensure you don't attract a fine or accidentally start a bushfire.
