Stapylton campground closure in the Grampians NP
Friday 7 June, 2013
Stapylton Campground in the northern section of the Grampians National Park is currently closed due to in-ground asbestos contamination.
Ranger in Charge David Roberts said the area was closed as a precaution for all activities, including camping.
“With recent rain and increased visitation to the area there has been some exposure of cement sheeting containing asbestos,” said Mr Roberts. “We are currently working through options to manage the site.”
The cement sheeting pieces came from an old building that was previously situated on part of the Stapylton campground area.
“We appreciate the patience of visitors while the area is closed and encourage people to camp in other areas around the park,” said Mr Roberts.
Stapylton Loop Walk and the popular Ngamadjidj Shelter remain open. The Loop walk can be accessed from Millers or Polhners Roads.
Troopers Creek, Plantation and Smiths Mill Campgrounds are also available in the Northern Grampians for camping or visit a local Visitor Information Centre for the many private campgrounds surrounding the Grampians National Park.
“There are plenty of other opportunities to get out and enjoy the spectacular Grampians National Park this long weekend and into winter,” said Mr Roberts.
