Free RV Parks

We have two free RV-friendly campgrounds within the region. No bookings are required for these campgrounds however space is limited and visitors must abide by the maximum length of stay.

We request visitors to obey the site rules as indicated on signs upon entering the parks and please allow room for others to access and exit as a courtesy.

    How long can I stay?

  • The Proserpine RV Rest Stop at 126 Main Street, Proserpine will close permanently on Tuesday morning, 3 October, after Council voted not to renew the lease going forward due to development approval conditions requiring the installation of drainage, lighting and appropriate carpark seal to the parking area.

    The estimated of cost of these upgrades was over $600,000 which was not in the 2023-24 Budget. The works would have needed to be undertaken on land not owned by Council and ownership of the upgrades would have returned to the landowner at the end of the lease.

    It is Council’s intent to continue to invest in developing the staged masterplan for Lake Proserpine which now caters for lakeside camping with boat ramp and jetty, pontoons, on-site managers and kiosk, glamping options and barbecue facilities.

  • RV dump points are located in many privately owned and operated Caravan Parks however, travellers can deposit their wastewater (sewage) from caravans and RVs at the below sites:

    • Bowen Showgrounds
    • Collinsville Showgrounds
    • Proserpine Anzac Road (adjacent to the Proserpine Tourist Park)
