Devil Cove Campground

Stay in comfort at Lake Eildon National Park's best-equipped campgrounds. Set around picturesque Coller Bay on the shores of the popular lake, the Fraser camping area comprises Devil Cove, Candlebark and Lakeside Campgrounds.

Devil Cove Campground is tucked away just to the north of Candlebark . There is no boat ramp, making it best suited for walkers and nature lovers looking to relax. Fees apply, and bookings are required.

Wake up to the sights and sounds of native birds and grazing kangaroos. Walk around to Merlo's Lookout for beautiful views or stroll along the water's edge on the Collar Bay Walking Trail that links all the campgrounds.

Devil Cove is closed seasonally, opening for peak periods (Public Holidays and School Holidays).

The campground area can accommodate tents and some caravans and campervans. There are hot toilets and flushing toilets. There is no boat parking available at the campground and sites are unpowered.

There are picnic tables and shared fireplaces throughout the campground, however no fires are permitted on individual campsites and you need to bring your own firewood.

  • Notices Affecting Multiple Parks

    Blue-Green Algae Warning for Lake Eildon

    Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) has detected high blue-green algae levels within Lake Eildon.
    Blue-green algae present a risk to the health of humans and animals. The algae detected may cause gastroenteritis if ingested. Characteristic signs of algae contact are skin rashes or itchiness; sore eyes, ears and nose; or if swallowed, nausea or vomiting.
    The situation is being closely monitored by GMW and the following precautions are recommended:
    • People and pets should avoid contact with the water.
    • Untreated water should never be used for human consumption (e.g. drinking, cooking, showering, bathing, washing).
    • People who come into contact with the water should wash affected skin immediately in clean cold water.
    • Boiling the affected water will not make it safe to use. Blue-green algae release toxins into the water when heated.
    You can determine if the warning is still current by visiting the GMW website https://www.g-mwater.com.au/water-operations/bga or by ringing 1800 013 357.
    Please remember that water in Lake Eildon is not suitable for human consumption without first being properly treated.
