Camping in Moogerah Peaks National Park

Frog Buttress camping area, which includes two car camp sites, is the only camping area in Moogerah Peaks National Park. Named after the northern-facing cliff line by rock climbers in the early 1970s, this camping area is normally occupied by the rock climbing community from Easter till late October each year. Alternative campgrounds or accommodation are available nearby.

The hotter months are not recommended as the mountain can reach up to 40°C during the day.

The two car camp sites are located next to the Mount French car park. These sites are for car-based camping only.

Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site.

Park-specific conditions

Tap water is provided for washing only. Please boil or chemically treat all water before drinking. Please supply your own clean firewood for wood-fired barbecues.
