Also known as: Centenary Park Camping Area

Summary

Camping at the base of Mount Arapiles is possible in one of two main camp grounds. The Pines camp ground is the more lively camp ground, where numerous back packers and climbing groups climb all day and often sit up long into the night drinking around the camp fire. The Gums is traditionally a quieter camp site for general camping and the occasional tour group.

Camping costs $2 per person per night, and is paid at a small steel post which dispenses envelopes, and has a slot for depositing the envelope + money back in to.

The facilities to these camp grounds include flush toilets and tank water at the Pines camp ground, as well as a couple of covered sinks supplied by untreated bore water. There are also pit toilets at the Gums camp ground and hot plated fire places near the facilities. A lare number of rubbish bins are also provided on the site.

Campsite is easily accessible by any type of vehicle - a short maintained dirt road takes you to the campground, just 50m from the road.

There is a wood fire ban from the 1st of November until the 30th of April - Fueld stoves are allowed during this time though.
