Camping Griffin Campground Mathinna Fingal Tasmania is on a first come, first served basis. There are no charges, and bookings can’t be made – Griffin camping is popular with family groups over Christmas, Easter and school holidays. Griffin campground is one of only a few areas in Tasmania where it is legal to take your trail bikes, All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s) and motorbikes. There are 2 distinct areas, that are adjace4nt to each other and both are suitable for camping. The second area is where motorcycles are allowed, and they should not be ridden or taken into the adjacent designated camping area. Please do not ride in the campground or disturb other campers, whilst travelling to and from the clearly marked, designated riding areas. There are toilets in both areas, campfires and a couple of picnic tables. However, due to vandalism, the campground generally isn’t in a great condition. Griffin Park is a popular destination for anyone looking for a longer stay in the Fingal Valley area. The Griffin Camping area is a popular choice to explore surrounding forests for walks, waterfalls, animal spotting, photography and for trout fishing in the South Esk River. The Griffin campground is set immediately next to the bank of the river. The Griffin Camping area Mathinna offers many sites on a large grassy area with sites offering shade, sun or relative privacy. However, please be aware that anyone looking for peace and quiet is unlikely to find it here when there are motorcycles in the area. The river is not only suitable for trout fishing but also swimming (with care). Be careful and on the lookout for snakes during warmer months. To reach this campsite travel North on the B43 for 25 kilometres from Fingal to the Mathinna turn off. Turn right across the bridge and then take the first left for app. 600 metres where you will find a picnic area by the river. Follow the signs a further 5 kilometres to Griffin Park. You will find several large open camping locations, suitable for campervans and caravans.
