4WD campgrounds

Parks Victoria offers some of the most authentic and scenic bush camping opportunities accessible only by 4WD. Around Heyfield, Licola and Dargo in the Wonnangatta - Moroka area and around Mansfield and Whitfield in Alpine National Park you'll find many 4WD access campgrounds. Cascading waterfalls, clear mountain streams, wildflowers and spectacular views of the Alps are all features of the Wabonga Plateau - Mount Cobbler area of the Alpine National Park. 4WD access is recommended at Lake Cobbler, home of the Lake Cobbler Hut built in 1986 by the Wangaratta 4WD Club.

Camping is permitted at Amblers Crossing in Lerderderg State Park by 4WD or walk-in access only and due to the terrain and track surface is only accessible in dry weather. Prepare for a basic bush camping experience and be self-sufficient with drinking water. Set alongside one of the largest white sand dunes in the area, Snow Drift campground in Wyperfield National Park is accessible by 4WD only via Underbool along Gunners Track.
