Free Camping on the edge of a small, beautiful lake.
This is a great spot suitable for caravans with a view of the lake from your camp site. The level of the water changes a fair bit, and can get very low during a drought, however when full is a beautiful spot.
Water skiing (in sections depending on water levels) and fishing (check on seasons) are popular here, however it is also a great spot for canoeing/kayaking.
Update Oct 2017: New amenities block consisting of 4 unisex (cold) showers + 4 unisex toilets. Old amenities block closed. Resident "Book Book" the rooster needs some company, so if you have a spare hen bring it along.
Check out the blue-green algae level indicator between the amenities block and the water before any water activities.
A concrete boat ramp is at the southern end of the camping area.
Nearest fuel (BP) is 57 kms away at Nebo Junction and was same price as Mackay when reviewed. Note the servo closes around dusk.
