Camping Waterhouse Conservation Reserve

Fabulous camping area, far North East Coast of Tasmania offering multiple camping choices close to water, suitable for fishing, swimming, boating and other water-based activities. There is app. 11 different camping areas in the Waterhouse Conservation Area, being a magnificent 25-kilometre stretch of beach located app. 40 kilometres East of Bridport and accessible from the B82 road via Blackmans Lagoon and Homestead Roads. Campsites are located among scrub next to sandy tracks in this beautiful, yet fairly remote part of Tasmania and with many offering good shade, privacy and shelter from the prevailing North Westerly winds which can be very strong in this area. Most campsites at Waterhouse are accessible using a standard vehicle, however, we recommend as a minimum a soft off-roader such as a Subaru Forester, X-trail Rav4 etc,. with all-wheel drive vehicles being necessary as some of the gravel roads are rough and bumpy and can become difficult to access after prolonged wet or dry weather. There is a 4WD boat-launching site located nearby. To camp at any of the Waterhouse campgrounds, you must carry your own firewood and fresh drinking water – dogs are OK but must be kept under control at all times. Many campsites are suitable to bigger rigs, including caravans, campervans, motorhomes and camper trailers whilst others are suitable for tent based camping only. The camping areas in the Waterhouse Conservation Area are Big Waterhouse Lake Camping area, Blackman’s Lagoon camping area, Brads Camping Area, Casuarina Hill Camping Area, Herbies Landing Camping area, Mathers Camping Area, Ranson’s Beach campground, South Croppies Point Camping Area, Village Green campsite, Waterhouse Beach camping and Waterhouse Point camping area. There are strictly no motorbikes, off-road driving on beaches, horses or chainsaws permitted in Waterhouse Conservation Camping areas. You must camp in clearly designated areas only.
