Prickly Wattles Campground
There are plenty of secluded, sheltered sites at this extensive camping ground next to the road, 2 km south of Arthur River. Reputed to be a very good fishing destination, the beach at Arthur River has firm sand and boat-launching places, but you can also fish off the beach. Collect driftwood for fires and light them only in the fireplaces provided. Boil or treat the water before drinking, or bring your own.

This campsite is located in Arthur–Pieman Conservation Area
Between the Tarkine rainforest wilderness and the wild Southern Ocean, this remote strip of heathland, dunes and forest lies directly in the path of relentless ocean storms. Once the home of the Tarkiner people, it has an incredibly rich concentration of archaeological sites dating back some 30 000 years. Apart from the Western Explorer route, access is only possible via 4WD tracks, so it remains mostly uninhabited, with only a handful of fishing shacks along its windswept coast. The area’s tracks and beaches are perfect for horseriding and there are holding yards at Arthur River and Rebecca Creek.
