My Partner and I live in Hobart. We are looking for camping spots within Tasmania, which have good facilities like toilets and where Fires are permitted. We are hoping to be able to do some activities within the region like fishing or bushwalking. We have already been to Coles Bay and Bruny Island too many times.. Any Suggestions!?
There's a great camp site at Mole Creek, which is close to the Mersey River, and has some good nearby walks and caving. It's under $20 per night for tent sties, fires are permitted, and you can get good pub meals down the road.

I would highly suggest Port Arthur Caravan Park it is about 500 meters past the Fox & Hounds. I have been going there since i was about 4 years old. I go every Christmas, Easter and long weekend It has a massive recreation room with a tv, laundry facilities, park, fires permitted, power sites, cabins, shop, ten sites, showers and toilets. 5 Minute to the best beach in Tasmania Stewarts Bay. You can also walk in to Port Arthur Historic Site from the camping grounds.
While you are down there you can do Shipsterns Bluff Walk which is a 5 hour return walk or Cape Roual there is the blow hole and much much more to do down there.
If you wanted to go out for a meal one night i would highly suggest Taylors Restaurant which you can walk to from the camping site. It is on the other end of the beach.
You can go fishing off the rock or at the jetty there as well. It is one of the most relaxing places in Tasmania i would say. Defiantly worth going there for a few nights! over 10 years ago
I agree with the Peninsula, and you can't go past Fortesque Bay just south of Eaglehawk Neck. Large tent sites for around $5 per person, per night, great toilet facilities, half day bushwalking around Cape Hauy Fishing off the jetty you are bound to catch some squid and flathead, and if you are a keen diver then you can get under and catch a few southern rocklobster or abalone.
There is also a serene beach just the the west of the camp sites. Perfect spot to spend a few days out of the bustling city life!

Fortesque is definately worth visiting. Cockle Creek is also excellent www.parks.tas.gov.au/file.aspx?id=6448 and you can't go past Cradle Mountain. Lots of different camping and accomodation options are avaliable. There are some great rustic cabins at Lake Dobson at Mt Field National Park or you can camp at the enterance to the Park. I would suggest the cabins and you are then close to all the walks and no need to drive each day. Facilities are minimal. Maria Island also worth visiting. Lot of other options can be found at http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?base=412 over 10 years ago
Port Sorell in the north-west is gorgeous and has great beaches and places for fishing: http://www.smh.com.au/news/Tasmania/Port-Sorell/2005/02/17/1108500205906.html over 10 years ago
