Candlebark Campground


Candlebark Campground

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: Phone signals are unreliable in the park. Avoid camping under or near large trees. Branches may fall and swing away from the tree at any time. No bins are provided. Please take all rubbish home with you for recycling or disposal.

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. Fires must only be lit in the fireplaces provided that: it is not a day of Total Fire Ban, an area of at least 3m around it is cleared of anything flammable, an adult is in attendance at all times (within 50m and in direct line of sight), have at least 10 litres of water available for immediate use and put the fire out with water, not soil. When the campfire is cool to touch, it is safe to leave.

Take care when swimming, boating or paddling. Deep holes, submerged objects, and currents may not be obvious. Supervise children at all times near water.

All plants, animals, other natural features and cultural sites are protected and must not be disturbed or removed. Feeding wildlife is bad for its health. It is an offence to feed or leave food where it is accessible to wildlife. Penalties apply. Please abide by speed limits, drive safely and watch for wildlife. Loud noise can disturb wildlife. Please respect the local wildlife and your fellow campers and keep noise to a minimum. Dogs and other pets are not permitted in the park, except at the Jerusalem Creek Campgrounds where dogs are permitted but must be on a lead at all times.
