Camping at Lake Catani

Nestled in and around the banks of the pristine alpine waters of the lake, the small intimate campground is perfectly located for campers to make the most of the water with a possible moonlit dip, a sunrise paddle or a sunset fish at your fingertips.

The campground is open from from Melbourne Cup Weekend (beginning of November) to April inclusive, and bookings are absolutely essential.

Bookings open at 10:00am on 1 September each year and are based on a first-in, first-served basis. Entry to the Mount Buffalo National Park is free, however fees are applied to camping.
