Rather dry bush camping (no facilities) in open, level woodland near the lake.
Reasonable shade from scattered Yellow Gums and River Red Gums on grass covered sand with an understory of wattles. Few sites overlook the lake which features white sandy beaches, reeds, plentiful bird life (including swans) and views across the water to the Grampians. Toilets located at Sandbar (Lake Lonsdale Rd) and the boat ramp at the western end, no camping at either. Note NO CAMPING AT THE BOAT RAMP AT WESTERN END OF LAKE - CAMPING ON NORTHERN EDGE OF LAKE, EXCEPT "SANDBAR\"
This site is accessable by caravans in good weather.
Situated between Stawell and the northern Grampians. Access from Stawell: North-west 6k on the Western Hwy [A8], left (west) 7.5k on the Stawell-Sandbar-Ledcourt Rd. About 400m after crossing the Lake Lonsdale Rd (gravel) is the first of a number of sandy tracks 200m towards the Lake, extending over the next 4k, interlinked by sandy tracks
