Lakeside Campground


Lakeside Campground

Lakeside Campground offers a comfortable camping experience perfectly suited to motorised boating and water sports enthusiasts. Take in the panoramas over Coller Bay, go for a swim or explore the surrounds on foot. Hike the Estate Spur Trail or walk or cycle along the shore on the Coller Bay Walk.

Facilities include toilets, drinking water, picnic tables, a shelter, shared fireplaces and a nearby boat ramp offering access to the lake year round. The campground can accommodate tents and some caravans and campervans. Sites are unpowered. The main boat ramp below the campground offers access to the lake year round.

Lakeside does not have showers or wheelchair-accessible toilets. If you need these facilities, please stay at the Candlebark or Devil Cove campsites instead. Fees apply and bookings are required .

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.
