Nice quiet place.
Melissa is friendly and inviting. The property is far enough from the main road that you have peace and quite. Plenty of space and site 1 (which is what we had) is the best site if you want privacy from other campers. No grass so if that matters to you then this is worth knowing. Lots of Kangaroos to be seen close by and lots of animal droppings so bring a rake if you need to lay a ground mat. Bins are a bonus that's for sure.

Long weekend escape
We had an awesome long weekend here with the kids. We had a very nice spot next to the dam. We were also theonly booking. Good close proximity to Bendigo. It was a very hot couple of days although the afternoon/evening bought a cool breeze that was a welcome break from the heat. Awesome spot for stargazing. The Kids loved having races on the kayaks around the dam. Can't wait to see the many trees that have been planted grow to their full size. Would recommend.
