It is an excellent base for walking and for non-motorised water-based activities. Launch a canoe, kayak or paddle-board or swim in the sheltered waters of Devil Cove or Coller Bay. Walk along the shores of the lake or up into the surrounding hills on one of several walking trails.



The Fraser camping area can accommodate tents and some caravans and campervans. Boat parking is available within and adjacent to the campgrounds. Sites are unpowered. 

There are picnic and shared fireplaces throughout the campground, however no fires are permitted on individual campsites and you need to bring your own firewood.
