Lake Mackintosh Campground


4.2 from 31 users


Located 5km from Tullah, Lake Mackintosh is stocked with brown and rainbow trout and surrounded by beautiful rainforest. There are two boat ramps and a spacious campground at the lake. There are no facilities. Campers need to be self-sufficient. Take all rubbish with you and leave no trace. The primary boat ramp is concrete, with the West ramp being gravel. To access these facilities travel over Mackintosh Dam and spillway. Note: access to this site and boat ramp is closed when the lake spills. Visitors must evacuate when the water level is high, as identified on the evacuation gauge board sign. Pets are permitted. There are several easy bush walking tracks around the lake or take a three-hour return walk to the summit of Mt Farrell through lush forest past old mines and through areas of buttongrass. From the summit there are amazing views of Tasmania's wilderness. You need a licence to fish for trout in Tasmania's lakes.

Stayed here just one night while on our way home from Strahan. Beautiful spot on the water, otherwise you can stay up on the flat area back up near the road. Only us and one other group here, so peaceful!

Stayed here on the 26 & 27th of March where you head down to the bitumen boat ramp but continue down the rocky road just before it and come to the best spot by far, peaceful and quiet with a stunning backdrop. We were in a 8.5m motorhome so you will get in, spent the first night all by ourselves, loved it.

beautiful campsite by the lake, need to drive down the gravel road to the lakeside. There were lots of bees when we went but beautiful scenery nonetheless!
