Stumpys Bay – campsite no. 1
The first of 4 campsites in Stumpys Bay, this one gives access to the middle of the beach. Take the second right turn off Musselroe Rd (C845), 5 km past the self-registration booth, onto Forester Kangaroo Dr. After 2 km, turn into a signposted track to all 4 campsites. Campsite no. 1 is the largest, but the beach is steep and swimmers should take care. Suitable for small vans only. Bore water is available but not suitable for drinking.

This campsite is located in Mount William National Park
Abutting the northern edge of Bay of Fires Conservation Area, this remote coastal park of pure white beaches, deserted granite headlands and sheltered lagoons is also home to an incredible abundance of animal life. A slow drive around the park at dusk will have you convinced that Tasmania’s wallaby population is thriving, and by day the birdlife is delightful. The 1889 Eddystone Lighthouse, situated on a lichen-encrusted granite point in the southern part of the park, is a dramatic sight. In 2012, this headland was returned to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community and it is now known as larapuna. Access to the park is unsealed and tracks into the camping areas are unsuitable for large caravans and motorhomes due to overhanging branches. Bring drinking water and firewood, but gas/fuel stoves are preferred.
