18 camp zones scattered along the southern shore of the Delatite Arm of Lake Eildon.
Zones are generally similar: situated between the road and lake high water mark, most slope, grassed (slashed) with scattered shade from exotics and plantings giving a park like setting.
About 30 designated camp sites per zone, some close to the road. Most have pit WCs over the road. All backed by pine plantations.
Attractive if lake full, otherwise little to do or look at.
A map of the campsites and information brochure is available at depi.vic.gov.au
