There are no commercial or private lodges, motels or hotels on Mt.Stirling.
Private camping is permitted on the mountain and a number of basic refuge huts, some with historical significance, are provided throughout the resort. Most have wood heaters and fire wood is provided. There is no charge for camping or the use of these refuge facilities, however they cannot be booked in advance and if you are planning to stay overnight on the mountain you must come prepared to be self sufficient and not rely on any shelter, with the exception of the Alpine Camp (see below). Nights can be extremely cold and camping is only advised for those who have experience and outdoor equipment rated for extreme weather.
