Eustace Gap Camping - Lake Dartmouth Dam

Free Camping - Victoria

Favourite

The area is about 400 km north east of Melbourne. From the north access is via the Omeo Highway past Mount Wills or over Sassafras Gap on the Corryong - Benambra Road. From the south, travel via Omeo (Omeo Highway), Benambra and the Limestone - Black Mountain Road.

Mountain roads are often unsealed, narrow and winding. Chains must be carried during the snow season and fitted where directed.

Lake Dartmouth offers a variety of water sports as well as recreation facilities. It is a favourite spot for fishing, especially trout and Macquarie Perch. Camping (with limited facilities) is permitted in designated areas around the Lake. The track from Sassafras Gap to the Eustace Creek camping area can be accessed by car, although a four wheel drive is recommended in wet conditions. The two other camping grounds can only be reached by boat.

There are good boat launching facilities but, while motor boats can be used, water skiing and house boating is not permitted. Boats are required to keep at least 700 metres away from the dam wall.  Work is being done to extend temporary boat launching facilities to enable continued boat access at low lake levels.
