Philps Creek camping area (walk-in camping)

This walk-in bush campsite between the Frenchmans Cap trailhead and Lake Vera has no facilities. No fires: use a gas/fuel stove only.

This campsite is located in Frenchmans Cap Track

The track to Frenchmans Cap is a challenging 4-day hike that’s best suited to experienced, fit bushwalkers, so the rest of us must settle for capturing glimpses of this prominent white peak from the highway. The trailhead and walker registration is on the Lyell Hwy (A10), 3 km west of the Franklin River Bridge. Note: sturdy, worn-in boots, a gas/fuel stove and large-scale maps are essential.
