Lake is empty at the moment but lots of grass areas to camp. Clean toilet and running water for washing up. Few fire pits available and some logs to sit on.

Awesome spot considering it's free, my only advice is to maybe buy some bottled water because all the tap water around Naracoorte area tastes like someone already put it in their mouth and swizzled it around for a few minutes then spat it back into the bottle 🤢 you're on notice Naracoorte council 👊

Lovely place to camp for a night or two. Good spacious areas to set up our swags far enough away from other campers. Lots of flat ground and plenty of shade from the trees. Some areas also have a firepit that you can use when fires are allowed. Toilet and bin facilities and we'll maintained and clean.

Nice free campsite by the lake, flushing toilet, sink with water and soap, freshwater tap, fire pits and rubbish bins. Grassy sites with some shade, they do accept monetary donations to maintain the site. DONATION: 1 roll of toilet paper & picked up some rubbish. Please look after this site for future travellers.

Does anyone know if there is space here today?


Hey not sure if you ended up going but yes there is heaps of space there even in busy times of the year it is very spread out, sometimes a little busy around the toilet area as that's where most people setup camp by Lucus
