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 to generally take in the scenery. The Griffin Camping area Fingal is located on the banks of the South Esk River and offers many sites on a large grassy area with sites offering shade, sun, or relative privacy. The river is popular with trout fishermen and is suitable for swimming. 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. Camping is available only on a first-come, first-served basis; no bookings are taken with the location being popular with family groups over Christmas. This is also a popular location for trail bikes and All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV's) and motorbikes. Please do not ride in the campground or disturb other campers, whilst travelling to and from the clearly marked, designated riding areas. The last time we visited, unfortunately, the campground was in poor condition, as it tends to be used by locals for partying and anti-social behaviour.
