Rivers Edge Wilderness Camping

Rivers Edge Wilderness Camping is a grassy retreat beside the beautiful Russell River in Lonnavale, 30 mins from Huonville.

Relax at one of the 70 tranquil campsites on or near the banks of the river, lined with trees and easy access to the water. These sites are all very large and will accommodate from three vans or tents, right up to eight vans, plenty of space for a bit of privacy on your own or to sit around the campfire with friends.

The river’s deep swimming holes are perfect for a swim in summer and offer great fishing spots for trout and blackfish. Also see wild platypus in the river.

The surrounding mature white gum forest is home to abundant birdlife and the valley hosts pairs of wedged tail eagles and are often seen souring high above the campground.

The grounds are flat for easy access with plenty of public open space to kick a football, play cricket or ride pushbikes or to just relax in the communal shelter or around the provided fire pots on each site.

Surrounding bushlands are great for exploring and is just a short 30 minute drive to fabulous eateries.
