Tasmania offers great camping opportunities, and summer is a great time of year to enjoy them with family and friends. National parks and many reserves around the state have easily accessible campgrounds set in a range of landscapes, from coastal reserves to thick forests, along meandering rivers or deep in the mountains.
Family fun at Mt Field campground
Mount Field National Park is a great example with camping and caravan facilities available by the Tyenna River. On Maria Island National Park the large camping area behind the dunes adjacent to the barbeque shelter has plenty of sites and more are also available at French's Farm and Encampment Cove some 3 - 4 hours walk away.
Camping is also available within the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area with serviced campgrounds at Arthur River and also a number of informal camping areas provided at Nelson Bay, Rebecca Creek, Stinking Beach and Sandy Cape.
They’re just a small sample of the beautiful camping settings on offer, there’s sure to be one that suits you! For more camping information please see our Camping and Cabin Fee Information or refer to our Visitor Guide to Tasmania’s National Parks and Reserves found in the Publications page.
