Camping in Mapleton National Park

Accessible by foot, this small walkers’ camping area provides campsites beside Gheerulla Creek just 1.2km from the Sam Kelly Road trailhead carpark.

The 58km Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk route passes through Mapleton National Park and includes two walkers' camps in this park. For more information about walkers’ camps see the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk.
