About

​​Each of the six designated campgrounds in ​Mount William National Park provide a perfect base for you to explore the area. 

Deep Creek Campground is in the south of the park, and well located if you’re planning to visit Eddystone Point Lighthouse. 

In the north of the park, you can enjoy beautiful coastal camping at Top Camp, near Musselroe Bay, or in Stumpys Bay Campgrounds 1-4. The four Stumpys Bay sites are just a stone’s throw from the beach, and well sheltered behind a canopy of trees. There’s a good chance you’ll see wallabies around the campground, and wake to the sound of kookaburras. 

Pit toilets are located at each campsite, but there is no drinking water or power supply. Bore water is available for washing at Stumpys Bay Campground 1 and 3, and at Deep Creek.

Fires may only be lit in fireplaces provided. Portable cooking stoves or fire pots are recommended. Stumpys 2 is a Fuel Stove Only Area and fires are not permitted. There is a Day Use Area adjacent to Stumpys 4 campground which has a shelter, picnic tables and gas barbecues that can be used on Total Fire Ban days. 

Gladstone is the nearest town for groceries, petrol, firewood, meals and accommodation. 24 hour fuel is available in St Helens.
