Tranquil, pleasant lakeside camping shaded by scattered River Red Gums and some Black Box.
A large, open semi-dispersed site backed by red sand hills to the west, which can provide shelter if required. Facilities include 2 WC, 18 tables & BBQs, firewood & water limited. Rate 4.3/5 Kangaroos and emus are very common. Bird life is prolific: Noisy Minors, Parrots Emus and Choughs are common and include water birds if the lake is full - Pelican, Black Swan, and ducks. The lake and creek complex contrasts with the rolling sand hills to the west, covered with Mallee and porcupine grass with some stands of Black Box and Cyprus-pine. After rain wildflowers abound. The lake may be dry - it depends on flooding via the Chalka Creek from the Murray River and retains water for about 3 years. Can be very hot and dry in summer, winter nights may be cold. Tracks through the park may be rough after rain or flooded. Gas fires are preferred.
This site is accessable by caravans in good weather.
