This campsite is located in Arthurs Lake Lakeside Reserve
Like many other lakes in Tasmania’s central highlands, Arthurs Lake was formed to store water for hydro-electricity generation. Water from Arthurs is pumped to Great Lake and then piped through massive conduits to the Poatina power station on the northern face of the Central Plateau. These extraordinary engineering works have created lakes which are now home to some of the world’s best inland fishing. Anglers come to Arthurs Lake more than any other in Tasmania for its wild brown trout. The average catch rate is 2 fish per angler per day, so few go away disappointed.
