A small flat site shaded by open Black Box forest on the southern shore of Lake Meran.
Well off main roads. Could be quite pretty if the lake was full. River Red Gums ring the lake edge.
There is 1 table and 1 fireplace with two isolated bush camps to the east.
Caravans and big rigs could access the site but take care of overhanging branches.
Kangaroos and rabbits are common.
Together with other lakes in the Kerang area, the combination of warm (shallow) water, reeds and lignum bushes plus an ample supply of insects promotes the concentration of a wide range of water birds.
Although situated in a semi-arid area, the Park is on the Loddon River flood plain which encourages wetland vegetation and habitats, but Black Box forest is rather gray and depressing.
Can be hot in summer, flooded in winter.
This is a free camping area.
