We stayed on an en-suite caravan site with two grandkids (7 & 5). The drive-through site was more than adequate with a fireplace (although the wood was expensive to buy), very clean shower, toilet and handbasin, The park is located on a point which is surrounded by bush with plenty of native birds and animals. The kids were amazed at... More

We recently stayed in a cabin here on a family trip around Tasmania... only one night, but we should have stayed longer. The holiday park is located on a small peninsula with beautiful views and bushland experience. We had a cabin down near the water and the kids were enthralled by the paddymelons (small kangaroo/wallaby-like animals) that would come up... More

We stayed for one night while visiting Port Arthur in one of the cabins. Cabins are well equipped, linen, towels, full kitchen stuff. At the reception you can buy some food (pasta, meat, cereals, etc) and the staff is very friendly. Very quiet at night (we saw some Tasmanian wallabies), and is just a few minutes away from the Port... More

Good: located near Port Arthur convict site, most likely able to find a non powered site at last minute. Needs work: noisy, noisy. We came from New Zealand, where people in these holiday parks are generally respectful of their camping neighbors (at least every one we stayed at). So, the rowdy drunks next to us finally passed out. Non powered... More

Bunkhouse was extremely basic and was quite expensive for what was offered. No linen, sheets or table and chairs in room. Just 8 bunk beds. As for the surrounding bush land, lake and wildlife roaming through the park- it was all excellent! Beautiful area and good facilities to cook at, relax and fairly clean bathrooms. The location is fantastic!!! Situated... More

What a lovely setting, surrounded by bush and the sea. Well kept grounds, sites well spaced (neighbours not in your face) clean & compact ensuite, all the facilities and very close to the Port Arthur Penal Colony, nit to mention all the natural attractions & vistas in the area. I highly recommend the camping caravan park to all.

We have been holidaying at this park now for nearly twenty years with family and friends and it only gets better each time. Excellent facilities, beautiful spacious and private sites, cosy cabins if that's more you. Lovely walks and short walk to child friendly Stewart's Bay Beach.

What a great park! Private powered sites, big unpowered sites, new& clean facilities, BBQs everywhere, and all this walking distance from the port Arthur settlement. Highly recommended. We stayed there in peak period but it didn't feel crowded despite being close to full.

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. We stayed in a waterfront cabin which was lovely - great views, lots of wildlife around and very comfortable. Walking around the camping area, I wished we lived closer so we could bring our camper trailer - it looks like a great place to camp with designated sites that are... More
