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

This is the best park I have been to - spacious sites, clean amenities and stunningly beautiful! We have travelled around this beautiful state for 8 days but this park is by far the best we have been to and I would not hesitate to recommend!

I think this one was of the best parks in the the park itself was very nice but the lovely gentleman at the desk didn't wait to ask you where you might like to visit he brought out a great map and directed us to a lovely area with beautiful rock formations. Without that direction we would have missed a... More

We pre-booked a Water View Cabin on line. The park is about 1 km from the Entrance building of the Historic Site and set in a sprawling well maintained park setting. Our cabin was clean and very well appointed. The appliances are all new and top quality with full size refrigerator. Television has cable as well as free to air.... More
