We enjoyed our 2 day stay here & would stay here again. At $14 per night (unpowered seniors) it was good value. The area is huge with plenty of level sunny sites right on the lake edge. Shady trees provide shade if needed. There are also powered sites available. The amenities are very good. We were aware of the algae problem & knew the water was off limits. As it was cold this didnt bother us. FYI Coal trains are frequent (day & night approximately every 30 - 45 minutes). While they didnt bother us light sleepers might find this bothersome. The presence of algae that can cause meningitis means there is absolutely no water activities. If you like to fish or swim its not for you. In view of this it would be hot & unpleasant in the summer months.

Extremely disappointing - the lake is not useable due to some life threatening algea that can give you meningitis, and can cause death & absolutely no water activity is allowed. The grass is practically all burrs and bindi. We had a puppy & he couldn't be taken for a walk except on the dirt. Amenities were ok. We booked for a week but only stayed a couple of days - couldn't wait to leave.
