Prickly Wattle Campground offers fairly basic, but excellent bush camping at Arthur River on the C214 road, on the wild West Coast of Tasmania. There are a large number of sheltered sites at this large camping ground, which is set next to the main road and is some 2 km south of the township of Arthur River. Arthur River, in the Tarkine, is well-known for its excellent fishing including both salt (salmon is a popular catch) and freshwater options (trout and bream). The Arthur River Cruise is a must if you are camping at Arthur River, where if you are lucky you will see the beautiful White Breasted Sea Eagle. To camp at Prickly Wattle, you will need to be largely self-sufficient, and carry your own water – basic food provisions can be bought in Arthur River but please note this is a small settlement so the shops are nothing more than small general stores. There are very basic long drop toilets at the Prickly Wattle Campground. Can you collect firewood that has fallen from trees, but under no circumstances is wood to be cut from trees. Dogs are OK, but must be kept under control at all times. This campground is patrolled by the local Parks and Wildlife Ranger. There are other excellent camping options in Arthur River including Manuka, Nelson Bay and Peppermint campgrounds. You need a permit to camp at Prickly Wattle, which can be purchased in Arthur River from the Tarkine Visitor Centre. If arriving after hours, there are facilities to register and pay camping fees. The campsites are patrolled by a ranger and checks are made to ensure that fees have been paid.
