Cradle Mountain Camping

Cradle Mountain has camping facilities for a totally wild outdoor holiday.

While camping is not allowed in the National Park, there is a very good private campground in a picturesque bush setting an easy two minute walk from the park entrance.

Cradle Mountain Tourist Park and Campground (formerly Cosy Cabins) has tent sites for $25 – $30, all tucked away in quiet bush alcoves. Camping near Cradle Mountain is a great budget friendly option, especially in the warmer months between November and March. Outside these months, be prepared for some chilly nights and possibly snow!
