Hikers have been visiting this scenic area in the heart of the heritage listed Tasmanian Wilderness area for decades, enjoying the day walks near the lake or the famed Overland Track. If you’re already carrying your own tent and sleeping gear, why not make a memorable camp nestled in the trees within short walking distance to the water’s edge. It is the ideal location for both campers and bushwalkers or for schools, clubs and family bookings. There are powered and unpowered sites for tents, caravans and small motorhomes.
A basic camp kitchen is central to the campsite and shared amenities are in a block nearby. The camp kitchen has a coin operated BBQ. Toilets and hot showers are available at a charge of $1 for six minutes. There are also coin operated laundry facilities located in the shared amenities block.
Campers booking unpowered sites should be aware that due to the Wilderness protection measures of the glacial moraine area, these sites have not been levelled, so uneven ground can be expected. For most campers it’s an understandable concession toward maintaining the wilderness in its natural state.
Powered sites are large enough to park a small or medium size caravan, but large caravans cannot be accommodated
(sites are 9m in length).
Our Bunkhouse provides basic sleeping accommodation in keeping with the style of the rustic timber huts of the Overland track, enjoyed mostly by backpackers and hikers whose modest accommodation requirements can be met with a simple bed and heated shelter.
Accommodating between two and four guests in bunk-bed style, each room has basic heating, electric power and lighting.
If you’re seeking a slightly more private stay but are budget conscious, you can book our double or twin-share drumlin, which comes with linen already provided.
Toilets and hot showers are available in a shared amenities block a short stroll away at a charge of $1 for six minutes.
Bunkhouse guests also have access to a shared bunkhouse kitchen. Here they might mingle with other hikers and share travel adventures or swap some great ideas for a day walk, whilst enjoying the comfort and warmth of the fireplace.
Bring your own sleeping bag or bedding for a bunkhouse stay, or we can provide bedding for a small additional charge.
