Camping is in an idyllic location beside the Leven River, within a 100 acre natural forested property. The property fringes the Dial range nature recreation area and a nature conservation reserve. Camping is on river flats within a lush green ferny forested and sometimes misty valley, below Mt Duncan and Mt Lorymer. Very nearby there are popular hiking and mountain biking trails. Adjacent to the camping area the Leven River has some of the best trout fishing in North West Tasmania. There's places to kayak along with private river beaches to sit and relax, enjoy a paddle, swim or have a picnic. All camping is on river flats, tent's and small campervans can settle into small grassy clearings within tree's. While larger vans can set up on a larger cleared grassy area. There plenty of open space to throw a frisbee or have a game of cricket. The property is accessed from a very scenic 4 km well maintained gravel road that winds downhill to the base of the the valley. You'll likely meet James at some point after arriving. James is the friendly Manager of the property. ***Please note there are no facilities. Please bring a camping toilet (there's a dumping point in Knights Rd, West Ulverstone) and your own rubbish collection. Campfires are permitted when there are no local fire restrictions in place - if unsure, please check with James.Camping is within a 5 acre area on a 100 acre natural forested property beside the Leven River.

Leven River Camping On Wattle Farm
Excellent camp on the Leven river
We loved tent camping on Leven River Camp on Wattle Farm. Perfectly flat spots for a tent, with reasonable shade right on the lovely Leven river which has decent access for swimming as well as fishing. James was a great help, offering worms for fishing bait and local tips for catching Trout. Can't wait to return to this spot again!

Great long weekend getaway
A nice little camp, not far from home. Loved hearing the sound of the bush birds. Only one other group of campers so lots of space to relax in.
