We have said it before and we will say it again, the National Park Campsites in Queensland are second to none. The facilities are incredible, the rangers kind and knowledgeable and the campsites large and CHEAP! if you’re on a budget, you obviously cannot beat free camping, however there are not too many free campsites that accept or are suitable for tents – most are for self-contained vehicles only. National Parks are the next best thing for your budget, and they are EVEN BETTER than free camping for the facilities, views and experience.
We stayed in a lot of National Parks in the Sunshine State and we have compiled this short list of what we think are the best National Park Campsites in Queensland. All of these can be booked via the ParksQld website and cost you only $5.95 per person per night (or $23.80 per family per night). We only recommend campsites here that we have actually stayed at ourselves. if you have a suggestions for one that is amazing that we missed out on, please send us an email and we will try to get there and review it too!
These campsites are listed in no particular order, we could not pick a favorite among this outstanding bunch, so without further ado, here are what we consider to be the best National Park Campsites in Queensland.
Murray Falls Campsite in Girramay National Park
Big Crystal Creek Campsite in Paluma National park
Noah’s Beach campsite on Cape Tribulation’s Daintree National Park
Alligator Creek campsite in Bowling Green National Park
Smalleys Beach campsite in Cape Hillsborough National Park
Once again, all of these campsites can be booked via the ParksQld website. Be aware that most of these do not have drinkable water or source of power, so you will need to take your own (see what we travelled with here). Besides that, you have all you need: toilets, swimming holes or beaches, clean and large campsites and the SPECTACULAR views that are worth much more that the $5.95 per night price-tag!
