Cockle Creek is the most southern of a number of free camping areas in the Recherche Bay Nature Recreation Area. It is located at Cockle Creek where you can swim, or use paddlecraft. Facilities at this camp (and all camps in the Recherche Recreation Area) are limited to long drop toilets. Camps are accessible by all vehicles including large caravans, motorhomes, tents, camper trailers and campervans however many sites are lumpy and finding flat ground is challenging. No bins or water. Dogs and generators and campfires are permitted with restrictions. To enter the National Park area over the creek you will need a National Parks pass but camp sites are free (and often more crowded - and windy)!The main reason people come to this area is to enter the National Park to visit Australia's most southern point - South Cape. A walking track of 16km return can be done from the day-use carpark in the National Park (just over the bridge at Cockle Creek) to South Cape Bay. This walk follows a portion of the 85km one-way hike called the South Coast Track.
