Information

2WD accessible camp area in the Grampians National Park. Set amongst tall Eucalypts and heathy shrubland, Troopers Creek Campground offers spectacular views of the Mt Difficult escarpment. Spectacular in the late afternoon, the setting sun lights up the opposing rock wall above the campground making for an incredible photo opportunity. Well established gum trees shade the site and a variety of woodland birds frequent the site.The campground features shared fireplaces with BBQ hotplates and picnic tables throughout. Make sure you bring your own firewood as firewood collection is prohibited in the national park. There are pit toilet facilities and there are two large group camping areas suitable for up to 16 people. All sites must be booked online in advance. Check online booking descriptions for specific sites - some are suitable for caravans, but others only for tents.Troopers creek is just down the road from the Beehive Falls trailhead where trails to Briggs Bluff, Gar / Mount Difficult and Beehive Falls are all accessible, and is also next to the trailhead for section two of the Grampians Peaks Trail.Note: the site was formerly 3km south of the current location. Troopers Creek Campground is in the northern Grampians off Roses Gap Road. Follow the road west from Roses Gap for 3.5kms and find the campground on your left.
