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.
For nature lovers the park is frequented by owls, wallabies, wombats and the occasional Tasmanian Devil plus a range of beautiful birds including a very healthy population of fairy wrens. We also are lucky to be next door to some of the tallest eucalyptus Regnan and Obliqua trees in the state (see 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.
As the park is located in the middle of Tasmania and is a popular spot with interstate and international tourists as an ideal stopover between Hobart and Strahan.
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.
