​Bookings are not required. The camp sites are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Payments for camping can be made at either the campgrounds's self registration booth (cash payments only) or at the Visitor Centre during operating hours.

Park entry fees apply and can be pre-paid online or at the Visitor Centre. For after hours arrivals, a pay display kiosk is located at the Visitor Centre for park entry card payments.​

The Mount Field Campground is situated inside the National Park's main entrance, 200 metres from the Visitor Information Centre.


This pleasant campground is set in the forest beside the pretty Tyenna River - just a few minutes walk from the Visitor Centre. There are 14 powered sites as well as a range of unpowered sites. Spaces are suitable for campervans and caravans as well as tents.

This location is part of the famous Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and is a Fuel Stove Only area. Fires are not permitted within the campground. There are however some designated fireplaces within the day use area where fires can sometimes be lit, unless fire bans are in place. Please seek clarification from staff.

The Mount Field Campground has excellent facilities, including a toilet and shower block with coin-operated washing machines and clothes driers, and a communal cooking shelter with free electric barbecues and sink with hot water.

Bookings are not taken for campsites and instead it is run on a first-in basis. For the best chance of finding a vacant site it is advised to arrive at the campground by mid-morning as checkout time is 10am. 

There is no overflow camping permitted, if the campground is full there are no alternative campgrounds within the National Park. A privately-run campground is located within five minutes' drive of the park entrance. Other alternative campsites can be found within the Southwest National Park and are all a 1.5 hour drive from Mount Field National Park.
