Camping trout creek reserve upper Scamander, free campground perfect fishing spot right on the banks of the Scamander River and suitable for tent camping, smaller motorhomes, campervans and camper trailers.

The free camping area Trout Creek in the Upper Scamander Reserve is a hidden gem, this beautiful campground takes a bit of effort in getting to but is worth it. This campsite isn’t well-suited to really big rigs, the road to Trout Creek Reserve is mostly gravel and is narrow in parts, quite steep in other parts, and very rough in sections. Once at the Trout Creek Reserve campground, you can camp right next to the Scamander River, and even fish from your campsite. There are toilets at the Trout Creek Reserve, Upper Scamander, and firepots for cooking and keeping warm. You will need to carry your own firewood, fresh water, and all provisions. The river is perfectly suited to kayaking and canoeing. The campsite isn’t all that big, but there is a decent amount of room and it is unlikely the Trout Creek camping area Upper Scamander would ever be full other than over the Christmas New Year, and Easter holiday periods. In addition to camping next to the river, you can camp a little distance away on well-grassed grounds, that offer increased shelter and are closer to the toilets. This area is perfect for tent-based camping. The campsite is very popular during holiday periods over Christmas and on weekends during summer months.

    The best kept secret campground in Tassie - takes a bit of getting there, but definitely worth the effort if you enjoy fishing, kayaking or simply getting away from it all.
