what a beauitful slice of peaceful paradise! Photos didn't do it justice. Beautiful garden and lake and a perfect place to take in some wildlife and relax and enjoy the serenity. Jennifer was a wonderful host and I enjoyed our chat around the firepit. This camp site is mostly suited to caravans and Rvs but Jennifer will consider small tent set ups if available. Short drive to town .Loved my short time here

Our short stay at Jennifer’s place was very lovely and beautiful.
We arrived with a warm welcome and a tour of the veggie patch/chicken pen.
We set up our swag right on the lake surrounds by ducks.
Would very much recommend this stay.

McCarthy Lake Camp is a hidden gem just on the outskirts of Maleny. Directions were easy to follow and Jennifer was there to greet us and settle us in. The campsite is a nice flat spot overlooking the pond. Will certainly be back. Thank you Jennifer.

I took my 7 yr old camping for the first time & McCarthy lake camp was just perfect. Lots of wildlife to see & beautiful serene landscapes by the lake make for a great weekend away. Jen was super nice & took my grandson to pat the chickens. Thanks for a memorable weekend,will definitely come back.

It was a privilege to be Jennifer's first hipcampers which we all celebrated with a glass of champers around the fire pit one evening. The reverse in camp site is private and secluded behind the holiday rental home also available in this beautiful garden featuring a magnificent lake. Jennifer is a delightful and considerate host who ensured we had everything we needed. Highly recommended as a base for exploring the Maleny area.
