“Warm friendly reception at the end of a long ferry ride”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We booked here for a variety of reasons. (1) It was very close to the ferry terminal - however the reality is that one should not check in until midday and the ferry arrives soon after sunrise, and one had discarded all fresh produce because of quarantine regulations and so wants to shop. This park is on the eastern banks of the Mersey River and the town CBD is on the western bank. However, we drove to the city side and hung about, parking our caravan rig on a fat spot along the shoreline until shops opened up then checked in soon after 10 am and the very friendly warm reception did not bat an eyelid. The amenities are old but have been redecorated and are very clean and well appointed. The location is right on the beach river confluence and well situated. (2) The price is fair. We were quite satisfied with our choice.

From my first point of contact the lady on the phone was just so welcoming, we had been to Devonport a few times and stayed in hotels but for us this was the first time in a caravan park. The gardens are delightful and when we checked in the lady was again fantastic. She gave us all the information on what to do and see around the place. We took a Deluxe Cabin which was not as nice as a hotel but it was warm, spacious just the bathrooms were smaller( Probably the only fault with our entire stay). Further more there was a free BBQ and access to the beach was about 30 steps from our cabin. I would defiantly recommend the caravan park to any one. P.S. Helen's review was not helpful to me as I found the park to be immaculate outside and the inside of the cabin was clean despite it's age(10 year's old i would guess?)

The cabin one at Abel Tasman Caravan Park in Devonport was disappointingly dirty. Window ledges and skirtings covered in thick dust, broken flyscreens, and staff/ owner?giving incorrect information about the presence of mosquitos in Tasmania, freezer full of last tenants esky blocks, plastic ice block container in cupboard dirty, a couple of holes in an old lace curtain, flat batteries in tv remote control, one glass which needed washing... Etc. Why did we Stay? Apparent scarcity of Clean pet friendly accommodation for those travelling with a well behaved outdoor dog.

We were pleased we opted for a powered site, at The Abel Tasman Caravan-park East Devonport Tasmania. Our park position provided beautiful ocean views. We enjoyed daily beach walks and were 5 minutes walk to the local ferry which operates 7.30am-6.00pm; Monday to Saturday (cost $2.50 each way). The ferry across the Mersey takes only 3 minutes to the City. The park showers were secure, clean, had curtains and were a reasonable size. The laundry is spacious. Two out of order washing machines were fixed within 48 hours. A late checkout can be arranged on request. My only suggestion to improve the overall experience is for the site managers to offer more information at check-in including a mud map layout of the park.
