For many years Wayatinah Lakeside Caravan Park has been a favorite holiday destination for families because of its safety for children from road traffic, its extensive play areas, pools, tennis court and private boat ramp for access to the lake for kayaking and fishing.
As the park is located in the middle of Tasmania it is also a convenient stop over for interstate visitors travelling from east to west and vice versa.
For nature lovers the park is frequented by owls, wallabies, wombats and Tasmanian Devils plus a range of beautiful birds including healthy populations of red-breasted robins and fairy wrens. We also are lucky to be next door to some of the tallest swamp and stringy bark gums in the state (tasmaniasgianttrees.weebly.com/florentine-and-upper-derwent.html)
Many find the peace and beauty of this park too enjoyable to hurry away from and stay for a few days to catch up and relax.
Owners, Coral and Mark Paton are committed to continuing the family-centered ethos created by the previous owners. When you are here you will have very little chance of not talking to Mark and Coral. Both are more than happy to tell you of places of interest, locally and within easy commuting distance, and Mark is happy to share his favorite fishing spots with you.
The Wayatinah village (just up the road) has its own small and challenging 6 hole golf course, lovingly maintained by local volunteers.
A Tavern is also located in the village which serve meals when open. A postal box, public telephone and both unleaded and diesel fuel are also available (during tavern hours).
Most times fire pots are available for those that like to sit around the campfire (exception for total fire ban days).
We welcome considerate motorbike and recreational vehicle riders but not disrespectful ones. This also applies to party goers. We are a camp that caters for families first and while social gatherings are encouraged, loud, late night music and inconsiderate behaviours are not.
We have a "no helmet - no ride" policy in the park for all types of scooters, bikes, ATV's and buggy's so please remember your helmets.
