Shannon National Park has something for everyone. You can go canoeing, explore the Great Forest Trees Drive, walk from the campground up to the Shannon Dam or set out along the Rocks Walk Trail and see the Shannon basin from high above the forest on Mokare’s Rock.

In the 1950s and 60s, Shannon was home to a mill town which was built to cater for a timber shortage after World War ll. The settlement had 90 houses, a hall, church, store, post office and nursing station. The mill was closed in 1968 and the buildings
were dismantled and removed.

The Shannon Campground was upgraded in 2017 and offers a choice of over 60 campsites. 

The Campground Loop Trail is a great place to stretch your legs before relaxing at your campsite. It is a multi-use trail suitable for walkers and bikes. Please be considerate of other users.
