Loved this place. A lot of room, fire pits and right next to the lake. It’s quite close to the road but with more or less no cars passing (winter) it wasn’t loud at all. Will be back!

Lovely spot on edge of water.... plenty of space& several different areas. We stayed at Flat Rock East. TV & phone reception, surprisingly good. Fire pit , tho fires banned at the time & big rubbish bins. Great camp spot!

Beautiful, quite and clean campsite! Toilets were clean and well maintained. The surroundings and lake were very beautiful. However, when we were there (mid Feb), there wasn’t enough water in the lake to swim unfortunately... Overall, I would recommend staying here!

The area on the north side of Lake Lonsdale foreshore consists of different campground (Elliot, area east of boat ramp, Flat Rock, Diggers Rest-Sandbar). It is not clear from Google map when you're trying to find the right spot (but it it will lead you to the boat ramp). There is a compostable toilet by the boat ramp, one large recycling skip, and waste skip (so please sort out your waste in the right bin). Great views over the Grampians, possibility to kayak on the reservoir or swim, with all the areas dedicated for camping, there will be plenty of spaces to choose from. Quietly removed from nearest road and so the area will be as quiet as the crowd who's there. It would be a starting point to visit the Grampians or break a trip between Adelaide-Melbourne. The area is managed by GWM Water:
