Stayed here with a group, not as good as it used to be. Unfortunately, we had some items stolen during the night, just be careful, otherwise it nice and handy to the shops

Great location. Bus to the city is $3.20. Lots of space but choose site carefully. Sites behind Bunnings are noisy in the evening as trucks unload. Sites on Elwick rd end are very dusty. Amenities are kept quite clean

We stayed here for one night. A good location with easy walking to shops and transport. Clean facilities too. The lass who checked us in was a bit confused and after asking for our CMCA member number tried to charge us the full price without the CMCA discount. Did not explain that to use the showers one needs a token nor where to get a token from. Plenty of room here and a good place for a Hobart base, we will return when the weather gets a bit warmer.

Really friendly staff, couldn't have been more helpful.

We spent two days they're fantastic location nice new showers and toilets. Loved it

We camped on oval not far from Bunnings. It was very noisy until late into evening/night, then started again early in the morning. Only stayed 1 night. Convenient for water and power. In no hurry to go back

If you arrive after hours, choose your site and register on line via the showgrounds web site. Although you cant get the CMCA discount. The website is clunky.Write down the reciept number as it doesnt seem to give a confirmation. I took a screen shot. Showers need a token. Laundry is $8 for wash and dry.

The showgrounds has a large campground that can take about 300 rigs. The adjacent Inter City Cycleway runs alongside the old railway line about 10 kms into Hobart city. It also runs further up-river with an easy walk to Glenorchy shops and restaurants. There is also a great Turn up and Go bus service between Glenorchy and Hobart city (and MONA) that runs every 10 minutes from 7.00am to 7.00pm weekdays every 20 minutes on Saturdays and every 30 minutes at other times only $2.30 a trip for Seniors. We were parked down the back away from the noise of nearby roads. Parts of the showground have water views and you can see Mt Wellington most of the time.

$31 CMCA price for a site with power, water and waste today. Token for showers $1 for 5 mins. Swipe card entry for laundry. Thought it was a bit cheaper but good access to transport to city and good shopping a walk away.

The showgrounds at Glenorchy are very popular. We camped here in 2010 and it was convenient to get bus or train to Hobart. The place was always crowded and being able to get power was hit and miss. There has been major redevelopments since we were there so situation could be quite different.

They promote a.low cost stay, yet at $25 for a non powered site, they are charging top dollar for a showground. Then on top of it want $2 for a 5.min shower. So not low cost at all. Ablution blocks are portable but nice inside plus there is a small set off to the side. There are 2.main areas; a large gravelled area where the facilities are and a big grassed area further from the toilets and showers

Sites must now be booked online before arrival. Staff are very helpful and friendly and will fit you in regardless of booking method.
