To do camping in world end you need to get permission from forest department in malabe.
The above link points to the contact numbers of the forest department. Horton Plain Camp Sites should be reserved from the department of wildlife conservation. The contact numbers can be found on the thread - Contact Numbers of Forest Department and Wildlife Deparment for Reservations
You can get details form above link. There are three camping sites in world end. We booked camping site one.
You need to purchase tent. Coz sleeping beads and lamps are all available with forest department so you can rent them for the days you stay. They have a tent but they don’t allow people to stay in there. Because we also had the same exp with that tent. So u better purchase or rent a good tent which is capable enough for heavy rain and heavy wind. When night falls the weather is changing rapidly, so we need to prepare for the worst.
We started our journey from Colombo…We took night mail train to ohiya. It started @ 8.00 pm from fort rail way station. (Important : If u try to go this way u need to book this train sleeping booth before a week @ least other wise all the compartment will be booked. ) it is 5-6 horse journey from Colombo.. (177KM ). It reached around 4.30am to the ohiya
Then we stated our walk to worlds end… @ abt 5.45am.. it is a 12Km journey
Walking towards world end is awesome. Good for photography and enjoyable. We reach to worlds end around 10.45am. Then we went to camping site 1. Site one is awesome. It is ideal place with every one... I feel this is better place. It is 11/2km from the entry of the worlds end. (That checks point). ]Bakers riverMist @ the morning

When you prepare you stuff try to get some wet proof clothes such as a jerkin and a rain coat coz @ the night there is a heavy mist and wind. And you need some touches. Please don’t take much politen to that place if you take those plastic, please bring them with you. Keep only your steps there. I’m not recommending to walk @ the night. There is a toilet with good condition.. but the thing is we need to water from the stream in that camping site. no matter can manage.
no worries about that
