Although there is an abundance of magnificent mountain scenery all around and the spectacular Gordon Dam is only 15 km away, most campers here have their sights set on the water. Lake Pedder is one of the world’s great trout-fishing lakes and this site is set up for anglers’ vans and trailers: there is no grass to pitch a hiking tent. This is the only campsite along the Gordon River Rd. Access is via a short signposted access road to the left, 39 km beyond the Scotts Peak Dam Rd intersection, which is 29 km from Maydena. There is a boat ramp nearby.

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.
