Lake King William camping area (bush camping)

Camper trailer Dogs allowed Free No rubbish disposal Vehicle-based camping Wood fireplace Boat ramp Canoeing Fishing

These undeveloped lakeside camping areas are in bush clearings along narrow tracks, and are not accessible to larger rigs. Accessed from the Lyell Hwy (A10), 5 km west of Derwent Bridge, there are sites among trees near the boat ramp overlooking a vista of stark – but very photogenic – dead tree stumps. A more scenic area at Butlers Gorge in the south is reached along Butlers Gorge Rd, 15 km from its turn-off on the Lyell Hwy, 3 km south of Tarraleah. There are fireplaces but gas/fuel stoves are preferred. Trout fishing is seasonal and a licence is needed. The nearby Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park is well worth a visit.
