Candlebark Campground (Lake Eildon National Park)


Candlebark Campground (Lake Eildon National Park)

Set up camp in the shady woodlands of Candlebark Campground, an excellent base for walking and non-motorised water-sports like canoeing, paddle-boarding and swimming. Paddle or swim in the serenity of Coller Bay, walk its scenic shoreline on one of several lakeside trails or explore its forested hinterland along the Candlebark Nature Walk.

Candlebark is a large campground close to the edge of the lake surrounded by woodland. It offers camp sites suitable for tents and some caravans and campervans. Sites are unpowered. Facilities include wheel-chair accessible toilets and hot showers, drinking water, gas barbecues, picnic shelters and a nearby boat ramp. Fees apply and bookings are required.

Visitor Tips: Avoid camping under or near large trees – branches may fall and swing
away from the tree at any time. Fires are only permitted in the fireplaces provided. Firewood collection is not permitted in the park, so please bring your own. No bins are provided. Please take all rubbish home with you for recycling or disposal.
