Fire ban: Campfire restrictions are in place
From 21/10/2019, last reviewed 1/1/2020

​Campfire restrictions are now in place for this site.  This means you will not be able to use campfires, pot fires and other solid fuel stoves. Gas stoves and gas barbecues are still permitted.

Parts of Tasmania are experiencing the driest conditions for the past three years with traditionally wet or damp gullies now dry. An above average fire season has been forecast for the east and south eastern parts of Tasmania due to warmer and drier conditions.

These conditions have increased the risk of unattended or poorly constructed campfires escaping and becoming bushfires. We have a duty of care to our community and want to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable camping experience.

A valid parks pass is required for entry to Tasmania's national parks.

​Each of the six designated campgrounds in ​Mount William National Park provide a perfect base for you to explore the area. 

Deep Creek Campground is in the south of the park, and well located if you’re planning to visit Eddystone Point Lighthouse. 

In the north of the park, you can enjoy beautiful coastal camping at Top Camp, near Musselroe Bay, or in Stumpys Bay Campgrounds 1-4. The four Stumpys Bay sites are just a stone’s throw from the beach, and well sheltered behind a canopy of trees. There’s a good chance you’ll see wallabies around the campground, and wake to the sound of kookaburras. 

Pit toilets are located at each campsite, but there is no drinking water or power supply. Bore water is available for washing at Stumpys Bay Campground 1 and 3, and at Deep Creek.

Fires may only be lit in fireplaces provided. Portable cooking stoves or fire pots are recommended. Stumpys 2 is a Fuel Stove Only Area and fires are not permitted. There is a Day Use Area adjacent to Stumpys 4 campground which has a shelter, picnic tables and gas barbecues that can be used on Total Fire Ban days. 

Gladstone is the nearest town for groceries, petrol, firewood, meals and accommodation. 24 hour fuel is available in St Helens.
