Arthur River is a small township in the northern part of the West Coast of Tasmania, Australia, and is well known for the Arthur River Cruise and Tarkine Wilderness. At the 2006 census, Arthur River and the surrounding area had a permanent population of just 120 people. The Peppermint Campsite is signposted along the Arthur River Road near the Ranger’s Station and is close to the Manuka Campground and Prickly Wattle campground. Peppermint offers limited access for campervans, motorhomes and caravans, but is perfectly suited to tent camping. We recommend that if camping in a bigger rig, that you first try the much bigger Manuka Campground. Also in this area is the Nelson Bay Campsite that is located just out of the Arthur River community. Peppermint features excellent secluded sites; there is river water (water must be boiled) and pit toilets. Fire drums are provided. Watersports are popular at Arthur River including sailboarding, surfing, snorkelling, canoeing, fishing (saltwater and freshwater), beach combing and river cruises. There are also bush walks, ecotours and 4WD tours. If you prefer, simply relax and see native Tasmanian wildlife including Tasmanian Devils, wallabies, wombats, sea eagles and a variety of native birds. You can also visit the Tarkine wilderness, explore remote coastline in the path of the roaring 40s at places like Couta Rocks and Temma. The Arthur River Cruise is recommended when staying in this area. This campsite in Arthur River has a barbeque, sites are on the small side but large rigs can find a camping spot at the neighbouring campgrounds of Manuka or Prickly Wattle. You must carry your own drinking water, or boil the water supplied before drinking for at least 3 minutes. You can use collected driftwood for campfires, or branches that have fallen off trees. There is a ranger station at this location, and the Arthur River store where you can buy petrol, food and grab a coffee is immediately opposite the Peppermint Campground Arthur River. Dogs are OK, but must be kept fully under control at all times and on a lead. Campsites are from $13 per night for 2 persons for an unpowered site – please note there are no powered sites at Peppermint Campground.
