Pleasant lakeside camping in open dry sclerophyll forest within Rocklands State Forest.
Reasonable shade provided by Manna and Yellow Gum over short grass (slashed) and gravel. Most sites slope a little and have water views.
The water edge is close, even when the reservoir is only 25% full. Boat Ramp This is the most attractive of the Rockland sites but is popular, partially due to good access. Pets on lead.
Cockatoos are common.
Bush camping accessed by good gravelly tracks along the reservoir edge.
