Peggs Beach camping area is part of the beautiful Peggs Beach Conservation Area, close to Smithton Tasmania on the far North West Coast of Tassie. To camp at Peggs beach you must bring firewood and a fire pot – campfires are not allowed. Tank water is available but should be boiled for at least 10-minutes or treated before drinking. There are a good number of excellent camping spots; secluded or open including sites that can accommodate big rigs such as motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers or  caravans. Cost for school groups is $2.50 per night, $10 for 7 nights. Peggs Beach Conservation Area has two designated camping areas; the first is Black River campground which features pit toilets but no drinking water and the second is this campsite at Peggs Beach itself which has flushing toilets but still no drinking water. Please note this camping location is of moderate size and is very popular over the Christmas New Year period so don’t turn up on Christmas Day or at Easter and expect to find a campsite. The area has excellent safe swimming beaches, including at Brickmakers. As this is a conservation area and not a national park, park entry fees do not apply. Although the Peggs Beach campground is quite close to the busy main highway on the North West Coast, it is right next to a lovely beach with boat-launching places nearby. Peggs Beach has sites sheltered among coastal vegetation and a separate, more open area that has limited facilities. To access Peggs Beach, turn off the Bass Hwy app. 11 km east of the Stanley turn-off, or 14 km west of the Rocky Cape turn-off.
