NB: The Park is currently closed for maintenance and renovation and will not reopen until Monday 19 July 2021. Sorry of any inconvenience.
For many years Wayatinah Lakeside Caravan Park has been a favorite holiday destination for families because of its safety for children from main road traffic, its extensive play areas, pools, tennis court and own 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. We also are lucky to be next door to some of the tallest 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 campers as a stopover night between Hobart and Strahan.
The new owners, Coral and Mark Paton are committed to continuing the family-centred ethos created by the previous owners of many years, David and Diane McMillan. 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, both locally and within commuting distance and Mark is happy to share his favorite fishing spots with you (well most anyway lol).
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.
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.
