“A great park”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We stayed two nights on a powered site with some friends on the adjoing site and had a great time ! Friday night happy hour and sausage sizzle was great to get to meet some other travellers and only a gold coin donation required if u want a sausage !!
Close to Longford,Launceston and surrounding areas, ammenities clean and the grounds are immaculate, The staff were friendly and helpful.
Dont know where the noisy racetrack is though !
Having the IGA and liquour store out the front of the park is a bonus too, also fuel and gas available. Would thoroughly reccomend staying here.
Yes there is some road noise but we didnt find it to be an issue.

Love this little park. Great camp kitchen, great herb garden. So handy having IGA on your doorstep when you are an avid cook. Close to Launceston but Woolworths is only 5 minutes away if IGA doesnt have what you need. Not sure about race track noise as no race tracks around there area. Yes there is a little road noise - sometimes - but not enough to interrupt sleep. A lovely walk to the river for a picnic lunch. A little drive up the road to Entally House - make sure you stay for devonshire tea.

Friday nights in holiday season the managers put on a sausage sizzle for all the park guests. Staff are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.The secondary amenities are much better than the main ones. Noise complaints are taken seriously and acted on. Would highly recommend this park as it is away form the commotion of the "city"

I have always found the Hadspen cabin park to be reasonably priced for the "home away from home" and the location is great to get to launceston and the other townships around like Longford, Perth, Evandale, Deloraine and Sheffield.

The staff were really friendly and informative of local things to do. The grounds were well kept, easy to get around, and just next door there is a post office, ATM machine and IGA shop.

We had booked a standard cabin that was more than adequate for our needs over 4 days, and the cabin was clean and welcoming after the driving trip up from Huonville through Hobart and Campbell Town. The toilet was separate from the bathroom/shower which was a good design for the cabin.

I would definitely use Hadspen Cabin Park again for holidaying in Tasmania.

Room Tip: Booking online and in advance was very simple from their website.

This place was our last resort since it was late and last minute. It is very overprized, we stayed in 5 Star hotels in Sydney for less!!!! The cabin was run down and very smelly. I have to say, our worst place in 4 weeks Australia!

We stayed in a cabin for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The cabin was spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The park grounds are well maintained and the IGA next door was very convenient. The park is just a short drive (approx. 10 mins) to the city of Launceston. Some previous reviewers have commented about road noise, however we did not experience this (and it was peak season). Would recommend this park to others as good value and clean, comfortable family accommodation close to the heart of Launceston.

My wife, son (8.5 months) and I stayed a night in the spa cottage while travelling in Tasmania. Check-in/check-out was simple, staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. It isn't a royal suite, but it is no dump. The grounds were well kept and the park joins a petrol station and small supermarket which are convenient. The main negative of this park was that it was much further away from Launceston than we originally thought. It was quite a drive, and although we were only there for 1 night, since there was no restaurants in Hadspen, we had to venture into the city for dinner and back again to the park for the night. Overall it was a comfortable stay and although we would probably stay closer to Launceston if/when visiting in future, Discovery park Hadspen was still a nice place to stay. Note: Neither of us had mobile phone (Vodafone) reception at the park - which was a little surprising to us.

Built next to a major road, within hearing of cars on racetrack (til 11pm at night) and amenities a hike for those camping.

Lovely green space for camping, but a challenge to enjoy the serenity above the sound of traffic and racetrack. If staying suggest decent set of earplugs.
