Wardlaw Park is very popular stop for motorhomes and caravans on the central highway. We discovered the 'Stag Snags' at the small local butchery just up the road from the park, and the excellent book shop on the other side of the Red Bridge. Campbell Town has plenty of shops and services. Trains make a little noise and trucks on the highway are heard most of the day.

Read the sign people, “self-contained vehicles only”, and don’t have to park on top of people you don’t know. Be COVIDSafe!

An ideal site for an overnight stop lovely river green grass and close to town. The bridge in town is famous and just across the bridge is some unique tree carvings. Would stay here again.

Stopped at Campbell Town again. Not crowded. Level ground. Some shade. Grass still green. Good TV and phone reception. Plenty of space for the large and small Motorhomes and the ever increasing freedom camping caravanners. Supposed to be a self contained but saw plenty of buckets under waste outlets. As is common in Tassie it was windy and no awnings were out this stay.
