Winter Camping Guide

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

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 walk/ski. A fee for use is required, book on-line at www.parkstay.vic.gov.au/book-your-stay


Lake Catani Campground -   Lake Catani Campground   A small number of campsites are also available during the declared snow season, beginning the Friday of Queens Birthday weekend until the end of August. During this period it is a basic campground with only pit toilets available. No fees for camping apply during this period at Lake Catani campground and no bookings are required. It is recommended that you check in at the Park Office Visitor Centre, 300m from the Chalet turn off at Mt Buffalo prior to camping during winter. 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. The sites are situated around the stone hut. Fires may be lit only in the fireplaces within the picnic shelter and fuel stoves are recommended. Campground showers and flushing toilets are closed during winter, but the pit toilet located behind the stone hut is open. Water is available from Lake Catani but is not potable, boil or treat.
