Information

This campground is located in the Lime Bay State Reserve which is an off-the-beaten-path area located on a remote thumb of the Tasman Peninsula in the Port Arthur area. An excellent place for camping with family, friends and kids with picturesque views, great swimming, snorkelling, short walking and water based fun activities. The combination of shade, beaches, and campfires makes Lime Bay State Reserve a really desirable place to camp. Black swans & wallabies are commonly seen here. Close to the campsite you will find what remains of the 1833 coal mines where convicts housed at Port Arthur were sent for punishment.

All sites are first-come first-served and reservations are not accepted. Fire rings are spread around the campground and ground fires are allowed, unless a total fire ban is in place. Fuel stoves are recommended. Firewood not provided. Chainsaws and wood gathering are prohibited. Pets and firearms are also not welcome. Generators are allowed until 10pm. No drinking water is available at the campground, so bring your own. A four-stall toilet block is set back from the campground where the toilets flush with a pump.
