Before camping in the Recreation Area, you must obtain and have displayed both a Camping Permit and a Vehicle Access Permit. Fees for Camping Permits are: "$5.60 per person per night or $22.40 per family group per night; $3.10 per person per night for students and accompanying adults on approved excursions." The Vehicle Access fee is: "1 week or less = $41.75; more than 1 week (up to 1 year) = $130.40." All fees are payable in advance, usually on-line. Rangers can issue on-the-spot fines. Don't risk it!

Mission Point camping area, on the usually protected western side of Bribie Island, is a designated Queensland Recreation Area. It is reached only by boat, and has a relatively protected boat anchorage area close to the 12 designated campsites. Sites offer scenic views over the Pumicestone Passage and the Glass House Mountains. – especially at sunset.

The usual National Park rules apply (no generators, pets and firewood apply). Facilities include micro flush toilets, screened cold showers, water tap (treat before drinking), picnic tables and fireplaces. Open fires are allowed (except when fire bans apply) in fire rings only, but fuel stoves recommended. To avoid chemicals, nails, screws, bolts, etc., firewood should be untreated mill off-cuts.
It is advisable to carry water for drinking, cooking and washing; gas stoves (preferred); rubbish bags; and insect repellent. Visitors camping away from facilities are encouraged to bring portable toilets to help reduce bush toileting. Mosquitoes and midges can create a problem, so be prepared.
