Pumphouse Bay Campground - Arthurs Lake Recreation

Private Campground - Tasmania


Pump House Bay is named after the pumping station which takes water from Arthurs Lake to Great Lake to be used in the Poatina Power Station.  There is a boat ramp nearby as well.

Please note: The Pump House Bay camp site is closed during winter, due to cold conditions making the facilities inoperable. The camp site is closed from the first week in May and re-opens on the last Saturday in July. 

This site has good amenities which are provided by Hydro Tasmania, as part of our commitment to support local communities we work with the Bothwell Tourism Association to run this campsite. This local tourism group receives all the profits generated from the campsite. They use these funds to improve facilities at this site and others to make the Central Highlands a better place to visit. 

Campers, campervans and caravans are all welcome at this site.   This campsite is located next to Arthurs Lake which is an operational hydropower and irrigation storage, which means that the water levels can change often.

A few more things to note about this site:

The toilets provided are septic toilets, they are kept clean and hospitable. These toilets also have disabled access. 

There are hot showers but you must pay for these, the cost is $2 for four minutes. 

Fires are permitted in the fire pots provided, unless there is a fire ban.

A peaceful little spot, plenty of trees and down to earth travellers. Cheap. Facilities are simple but well maintained. A favourite stopover on the way through to the highlands.

If you want a peaceful bushland campsite then this is for you. Cheap, maintained by volunteers and with a friendly atmosphere, we find it a nice place to stopover when heading north or south.
