At the Waterhouse Conservation Area on the North-East Coast of Tasmania, there are 11 different camping areas. The Waterhouse Conservation area is a 25-kilometre length of beach located app. 40 kilometres East of Bridport and accessible from the B82 via Blackmans Lagoon and Homestead Roads. A variety of different campsites are located among scrub next to sandy tracks in this beautiful, yet remote part of Tasmania. Most campsites at Waterhouse are accessible using a standard vehicle however, a minimum soft off-roader, all-wheel drive vehicle is recommended as some of the gravel roads are rough and bumpy and can become tricky after prolonged wet or dry weather. A 4WD boat-launching site is located nearby. You must carry your own firewood and fresh drinking water – dogs are OK but must be kept under control at all times. Many campsites are suitable for bigger rigs, including caravans, campervans, and camper trailers whilst others are suitable for tent based camping only. Please note the roads can be a bit difficult after heavy rains, making it harder for vehicles with larger caravans to access. The camping areas in the Waterhouse Conservation Area are Big Waterhouse Lake Camping area, Blackmans Lagoon camping area, Brads Camping Area, Casuarina Hill Camping Area, Herbies Landing Camping area, Mathers Camping Area, Ransons Beach campground, South Croppies Point Camping Area, Village Green campsite, Waterhouse Beach camping and Waterhouse Point camping area. Motorbikes, off-road driving on beaches, horses or chainsaws are strictly not permitted in the Waterhouse Conservation Camping areas. You must camp in designated areas only. In order to protect valuable vegetation at Waterhouse, the cutting of firewood and collection of wood is not permitted and fuel stoves are recommended.
