The peaceful location of Borough Huts Campground was once a small township where tradesman working on the build of Lake Bellfield called home. Now, the wide and open spaces of the campground make for perfect opportunities to explore the central Grampians.

Advanced bookings and payments are required year-round.

The central location is perfect for exploring the Wonderland Range, with Lake Bellfield only a short walk away. On warm days, the lake is perfect for swimming, canoeing or kayaking.

For a more challenging walk, the climb to the top of Mount Rosea also begins from here. The trail meanders through messmate and healthy woodlands before opening on to views over the Serra Range and the rugged landscapes of the Grampians. This trail also forms part of the greater Grampians Peaks Trail.
