Winter Camping at Mount Buffalo National Park
NOTE THAT THE LAST DAY OF WINTER CAMPING AT LAKE CATANI IS FRIDAY 31ST AUGUST

There are three options for those interested in coming to camp at Mt Buffalo over winter. Camping is only permitted in designated sites: Rocky Creek, Mt McLeod and Lake Catani.   

Mt McLeod and Rocky Creek campsites are open during winter however the walk into those campsites is made longer because the Reservoir Road closes. Therefore anyone intending to camp out there needs to be well prepared for camping in Alpine areas and a long snow shoe hike/cross country ski. A fee for use is required, book on-line at www.parkstay.vic.gov.au/book-your-stay

 

Lake Catani Campground is Open to Snow Camp  during the gazetted snow season

Winter camping generally closes at the end of August and the Camping ground is then closed until the Melbourne Cup weekend

Lake Catani Campground - Free camping is available only during the declared Mount Buffalo snow season , beginning the Friday of Queens Birthday weekend until the end of August. Access is via a 1km walk/ski off the main road along the Lake Catani Rd or a 2km walk/ski from the Gorge Visitor Area along the Gorge/Lake Catani track. No vehicle access is available. Camping is permitted on sites within the campground when there is no snow, otherwise on snow cover around the stone hut. Fires may be lit only in the fireplaces provided and fuel stoves are recommended. Fire wood cannot be collected in the park, so if you want a fire make sure you bring a supply of wood with you. Campground showers and flushing toilets are closed during winter, but the pit toilet located behind the stone hut is open.
