  • Nice drive and the park has facilities for picnics. Like all reservoirs, apart from a view of the water, not much else to see. Has a nice area for campers although too cold for me in July  more »
  • This was the first campsite I stayed on after we moved to Australia in 2010, and we loved it. Beautiful scenery, camp kitchen, showers and a ranger. We decided to return, having only 1 night...  more »

  • Nice spot with big undercover old shed with tables. Good for big groups. Bit pricey $28 a night.
  • WAS a great place. Now a complete lack of maintenance and poor resources has left me with a poor experience. Apparently there was small print indicating the showers no longer worked which is not something one looks at when they worked the last time I was there. Also other websites advertise hot working showers there....apparently that's my fault for believing those sites. Toilets were blocked when we got there. By the look had been in this condition for a while. Atmosphere no longer present. Packed last time I was there....now there was hardly anyone around. Of those people there they were also disappointed. The rangers who eventually turned up to address my concerns were lovely and apologetic but were not in a position to do anything about it. The head ranger also contacted me by email to explain the circumstances which was appreciated, but the administration has failed to compensate me for the cost of my trip, despite the fact that I didnt charge them for the trailer hire and other expenses I wasted chosing this venue. The other major concerns I had was, on a total fire band day there were new Australians there with large open fires roaring with no supervision from rangers. Given what happened in Marysville this is reprehensible. Sometimes its so much better to accept responsibility and apologize. They have left me feeling it was my fault.
