Pyramid camping area has 22 sites and basic facilities. Some camp sites have wheelchair-accessible picnic tables, and fire rings.

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

Park-specific conditions

Camp fires are only permitted in the steel fire rings (fireplace) provided at campsites, except when fire prohibitions or fire bans are in place. Penalties apply for lighting a fire in a place other than the fireplace provided and leaving a fire unattended. Bring your own clean firewood such as untreated, mill off-cuts—collecting firewood from the national park is prohibited.

All bookings for camp sites must be made online prior to visiting the park, and well in advance during peak season (April to October).

Empty chemical toilets at approved dump points, not in the national park toilets.

After storms, the access road may be temporarily closed or inaccessible to conventional vehicles.
