Laughing Jack Lagoon is located in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, with access signposted from the A10 highway. Laughing Jack Lagoon is a popular trout fishing location for local anglers. Campers can stay for up to 7 days at no cost – it is recommended that you bring a portable toilet, drinking water, gas/fuel stoves, food and firewood. This camping area is best suited to small campervans or camper trailers, and more specifically 4WD equipped vehicles. To access Laughing Jack Lagoon, head East from Derwent Bridge for a total of app. 20 kilometres and then turn right on the C602. Travel on the gravel road (narrow at times) for a further 9 kilometres where you will find the dam wall. There is 1 only small campsite located on the left-hand side of the road; if you head further along this road you will find other camping sites around Laughing Jack Lagoon. This is a pretty camping location, however, the track is a bit rough and more suited to a 4WD to get to all campsites. To camp at Laughing Jack Lagoon, you must be fully self-sufficient – there are no facilities at the campsite. The campground at Laughing Jack Lagoon is popular with fishermen during the period Aug–May, being the trout fishing season for this lake.
