Camping & RV's

The North West Coast of Tasmania is the perfect location to camp or explore in a campervan, motorhome, caravan or tent. You can choose from campgrounds provided by commercial operators or formal, and informal free camp sites throughout the region. Formal camp sites are listed below with usage requirements at each site, as they do vary. Camping is welcomed in many areas of the South Arthur Forest and has always been a very popular activity for people of all ages, both visitors and Tasmanians alike including backpackers to the region.

Large numbers of old logging roads and tracks throughout the forest make it possible to find a wealth of special little places where you can pitch a tent and boil the billy in relative seclusion and privacy. When you do choose to camp on Tasmania’s North West Coast, please always take your rubbish with you or place in the bins where they are provided. This protects the region’s unique wildlife and will ensure that people after you also have an enjoyable experience camping in our State Forests. Please remember to tread softly and use rubbish bins provided or take rubbish with you when you leave, protect plants and animals and be considerate of others when camping. Please take a moment to read the CMCA’s Code of Conduct

Julius River Forest Camping Area

At the edge of the Tarkine

Superbly located on the northern tip of the Tarkine rainforest, this free camping site readily accommodates vans and motor homes, but is not suited to tent camping. A night or two here makes exploration of nearby Lake Chisolm easy – get lost within a wonderland of old growth myrtle forest and discover a magnificent flooded sinkhole. Note, this site is closed in winter. 

Peggs Beach Campground

Nestled by the coast

Two attractive but basic campgrounds are on offer here, both managed by the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service. Whilst close to the Bass Highway, their location on a beautifully wide beach makes them a great place to pause for a night or two. Tent sites are nestled snugly in the coastal vegetation, whilst more open areas can accommodate caravans. Toilets are available but bring your own water. 

Marrawah Green Point Beach Camping Area

Good things come in small packages

A small, free campsite in a great location! Green Point Beach at Marrawah is renowned for its surfing, so get in early to nab a spot during the warmer months. There is a cold shower and water, but the local still recommend boiling anything you intend to drink. The weather can turn quickly here, so make sure you’re prepared. 

Crayfish Creek Van & Cabin Park

Tents. Cabins. Spa tree houses.

A beautiful park centrally located between Stanley and Rocky Cape. Offering a choice of luxury treehouse spa accommodation and family cabins, Crayfish Creek also welcomes vans and tents. A range of naturally secluded sites are dotted along the peaceful banks of the creek from which the park takes its name.

Stanley Recreation Ground

Welcoming vans and RVS

This grassy, flat expanse with perfect views of The Nut is the ideal place to pull up for a few nights in Stanley. The ground can accommodate approximately 50 fully self-contained vans or RVs. Visitors will enjoy frontage onto Tatlows Beach and the walkway that leads directly into the town centre.
