Brenton 5 5 stars for everything, the dam was really close but our site was just far enough away to be private, the setting out was great, the temperature was very warm as to be expected for the area but the breeze helped with that and we brought our own extra shade. medium-tent This was fantastic the owners were great with communicating with us. 2_one-of-best

Bryce Purden 4 Site was clean, quiet and close to the lake. Parking trailers could be an issue but we had no trouble. Not a lot spots of flat ground but it was better than we expected. medium-trailer It was great for 2 camper-trailers. Any more would struggle with manouvering.
[OUR COMMENT: we have doubled the size of this site]

Brian 3 Very good setting, peaceful most of time. Some noise at night from campers at Day use area on other side of lake Saturday night. medium-tent This site was suitable for our set up. We had three tents and three vehicles.
We had no major difficulties.

Tammie 1 Overall we loved the proximity to the large lake which we all spend hours kayaking on and it felt to a large extent like having a private lake to ourselves for most of the time. Having a long drop loo in camp was very handy. The only negative was that the campsite looked across at the day visitors area, which detracted a little from what is otherwise a complete wilderness vibe. Good cleared areas that handled our party of two families, well spaced apart. large-tent,medium-tent,small-tent NA 1_best
anonymous 4 Very private site, felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. A tranquil setting with beautiful lakeside camping. Plenty of different sites to choose from within site 1 each with a slightly different aspect and feel. Great to be able to have a fire and a massive bonus to be able to use some wood from the property. medium-tent No difficulties experienced 3_better-than-most
anonymous 3 We found this site a little squishy….
Our group had a large setup, but we also weren’t able to utilise two areas due to 2 active ants nests (they were big ants too haha). Don’t worry, we didn’t kill them. Aside from that, the area was nice. If I could improve anything about this particular site, it would be to add a little jetty/ramp so you can fish or swim off it, and make it easier to collect clean water (skimming a bucket along the bank results in gross water haha).
medium-tent,roof-tent,medium-trailer As with most camping groups, we always setup a central marquee. We weren’t able to use the full area above the fire pit due to 2 active ants nests. Would be great if you could somehow deter ants from building nests in the area? Although I disagreed, a few of the other campers said the middle section that houses the grey water pit should be cleared of vegetation to make more space.

anonymous 5 Very private, quiet, clean, lovely setting, and felt as though we were camping in a remote area even though civilisation was not far away. small-tent,medium-tent,small-trailer,medium-trailer An earlier check-in before 3pm would have been better, because it took us some time to set up camp and we were rushing to complete it before dark. Also, a bit tight with all our vehicles, camper trailers and tents, but that was our doing and we managed – a smaller group would fit comfortably.
[OUR COMMENT: we now allow 2pm check-in]
