There are three camping locations in Conondale National Park, all located along Bouloomba Creek. Two camp sites are for tents only; the third camp site allows for high clearance caravans and camper vans. Do note that the Bouloomba Creek Rd access has a number of creek crossings, so is suitable for high clearance 4WD vehicles only.

Camping Area 1 Features: A rainforest setting for tents only. Features toilets, cold showers, fire rings (bring your own firewood), walking tracks, a pay phone and water (not for drinking, as it is pumped from the creek, unless treated).

Camping Area 3 Features: Tent camping on individual sites in a rainforest setting. Features walking tracks, fire rings, toilets and (untreated) water.

Camping Area 4 Features: An open forest setting with plenty of room for high clearance caravans and campervans. Also suitable for tent camping beside your vehicle and for larger groups. Its facilities include (untreated) water, fire rings (bring your own firewood), toilets and walking tracks.
