Camping in Moogerah Peaks National Park

Frog Buttress 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 booked out by climbers from Easter till late October each year. During this time it is recommended that families wishing to camp should consider alternative campgrounds or accommodation.

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

Two car camp sites are located in the Mount French car park.

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.

Bush camping is not permitted in Moogerah Peaks National Park.
