This is the larger of 2 camping areas on the Scotts Peak Dam Rd. It has 20 sites beside the road, 31 km from a well-signposted left turn from the Gordon River Rd (B61). The site is relatively exposed to the weather so you will need a sturdy waterproof shelter for a comfortable stay here. It is popular with anglers, as there is a convenient boat ramp accessible via a short track opposite the campsite. Firewood and tank water are provided but you will need to bring insect repellent.

This campsite is located in Southwest National Park

Tasmania’s largest national park is 600 000 ha of rugged, unspoilt coastline, mountain wilderness and trout-stocked lakes. Accessible by car via the Gordon River Rd in the north and Cockle Creek Rd in the south, there are also dozens of walks, from 10 min nature trails to the epic 85 km South Coast track. Fireplaces are provided in roadside picnic/camping areas along the Gordon River Rd, but not at other places in the park. Bushwalkers should bring a gas/fuel stove.
