What a great spot. Facilities clean and well maintained. Hot showers. Caretaker very friendly and calls around each afternoon. Would stay again.

Great camp site, close to water. Major update near completion, powered sites being added and some hard stand camping sites. Caretaker says that new areas are opening in a couple of weeks.

Agree with previous reviews. Circumnavigation walk of lake. Bird hide. Approx 3 ft of water in lake with quite a bit of weed atm.

Great spot with hot showers. Gets busy on weekends & holidays with boats and jet skis. Very quiet during the week. Good walking tracks. Bird life nearby. Lots of kangaroos.

Great spot, quiet with bird life and kangaroos wandering through. Lake pretty dry at present, walked long way into water and not over knees. Kayaks only allowed at present. New amenities block with hot showers is clean and well cared for.

What a wonderful place to stay. Scenic spot looking over the lake, covered picnic tables, BBQs, fire places with firewood delivered to your site ($10 per bag), spotlessly clean amenities with hot showers and water available. Excellent friendly service provided by the caretaker and only $6.35 per adult per night. Booked in for 2 nights and extended it to 4. Will definitely be back!

Great spot, quiet & peaceful, have visited numerous times. Water down at present. Birds & kangaroos.
