Popular and well developed camping area on the banks of Lake Glenbawn.

The camping area is huge, grassy and has scattered shade. Powered and unpowered sites are available, as well as basic "bush camping" spots if you would like a bit more tranquility.

Facilities are well maintained and included hot showers. There is also a kiosk supplying the basics (bait, ice, bread. milk etc)

There are also self-contained cabins available if you are sick of the tent. These are fairly basic, but clean and tidy.

Lake Glenbawn is becoming well known as a great freshwater fishing location with large bass and golden perch, but the dam also has Murray Cod, yellow belly and plenty of catfish.
