Booking Information

Booking Enquiries

Thank you for your interest in staying at Montana. 

We have listed some useful information you should read that will make your visit more enjoyable. Please go to our Booking Form to fill out and send a booking application.

Please note that bookings cannot be made online and this is an application only – submitting the form gives us the information we need to be able to determine if we can accommodate you but does not guarantee your booking. Once the form has been submitted you will be contacted for confirmation and deposit.  Bookings are not confirmed until a deposit has been paid.

Please note we require a minimum deposit of $20 per night to be paid for each site booked. This is to be paid within 7 days by the group organiser on behalf of their group to secure the booking.  The deposit can be paid by direct transfer or you can pay by credit card over the phone. If paying by bank transfer, please use your last name as the reference. Deposits will be refunded in full if your booking is cancelled more than 14 days before your arrival date.  Cancellations between 14 and 7 days before your scheduled arrival will be credited 50% of the deposit paid.  We cannot refund deposits when cancellations are made within 7 days of arrival except in extenuating circumstances and at management’s discretion, whereby a credit may be issued.

Montana has always been a family orientated campground and is maintained for the comfort and safety of families – if you can’t respect that, you don’t respect us and you’re not welcome.  Anyone behaving in an antisocial manner will be ejected from the park.


Our rates start at $45 per night for a powered site and $36 per night for an unpowered site. This rate covers 2 adults and is the minimum charge.  Additional adults/persons over the age of 16 are an additional $17 per person per night, kids aged between 3 and 16 are $7 per child per night, and kids under the age of three are free. Our cabin rates start at $75 per night for two people plus a bond of $150 which will be returned once the cabin has been checked for damage and/or excessive cleaning.  Bedding is not provided.

Campsite size

Unpowered: The footprint or area allowed for an unpowered site is 6m x 9m – slightly larger than the average 2 car garage. If you are booking a group or are part of a group, this area will be combined to form a larger area. Any form of accommodation must fall within this area. In most cases additional space is available for the placement of a gazebo and chairs.

Powered: The area allowed for each powered site is approximately 6m x 9m.

Fire pit 

Any fire pit used must be a minimum of 400 to 500mm off the ground.  If you wish to use your own fire pit it must be checked by the ground staff before it can be used. 

The collection of wood within the park grounds or on the private road leading to the park is not permitted. 

Any wood brought into Montana must be cut to size (max 600mm in length) outside the park so it fits within the fire pit (fire wood is not permitted to be placed across the top of the pit).

A bucket of water is to be beside every fire pit.

Additional vehicles

Our sites are laid out with the allowance of one vehicle per site.  If you are bringing additional vehicles, please let us know the numbers at the time of booking.  At times you may be asked to move any additional vehicles to a parking area. 

Private road & Driveway speed limit

Entry to the park is via a private road please ensure that the driver is aware of the speed limits. The driveway is well signed for the safety of everyone, so there is NO excuse for SPEED.  


We are a dog friendly park and we want your best friend to enjoy their stay as well. They must be kept on a lead and under your control at all times in the park area, unless in the off lead area provided and their poo is your poo! For full details of the pet policy please see our web page

Please save yourself the embarrassment of being asked to leave the park by doing the right thing!   

If you have any trouble with the form or any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by email or by calling us on 03 5148 0347.  You can also find more information about Montana including our rates and facilities by visiting, and we regularly post updates about the park on Facebook and Instagram.
