Situated on the south side of Coller Bay, Lakeside Campground features free gas barbecue and hot showers are provided. It is the best choice for motorised boating and watersports enthusiasts, with the nearby concrete boat ramp allowing access to the lake year-round at varying water levels (down to 10 per cent of capacity).
Launch your boat or canoe and enjoy the walking and cycle trails along the shore or up into the forested hills to one of the lookouts with a magnificent view over the lake.
Lakeside Campground area can accommodate tents and some caravans and campervans. Boat parking is available within and adjacent to the campground. 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.
