Lake Elphinstone camping is a super popular spot in the Nebo Shire. It is a large natural lake which makes it a very popular spot for water sports. Bear in mind this is always dependent on the water height at the time, so if planning on doing so please contact the local council for a report.

Due to its popularity, the local council has updated amenities with new eco-friendly toiler and shower block. When planning on coming to the campsite it is suggested to arrive early as the spot while very large can attract up to 50 plus visitors per day.
The lake area is also great for swimming with the family along with taking in the local wildlife. Especially the birdlife in the area. It makes for the perfect spot for the avid bird watcher.
The site is also very accessible to all types of vehicles and is very close to the township of Lake Elphinstone. In the town, you will be able to gather your grocery supplies for your camping trip and top on petrol if you require. The town is just 25kms away from the campsite.
The lake is a popular destination for fishing, kayaking and water skiing. Red Claw crayfish can be caught here. So don’t forget to pack your fishing rods and plan a lazy day by the lake trying to catch dinner for that night.
A major bonus for this free camping location is that it is also accessible for your furry friends. So family trips with your dogs are welcome.
