Stay amongst the native trees while looking out over some of the best views in Victoria with Lake Eildon right in front and Mt Buller in the distance. On dusk rare flying foxes zip over your head down the valley below. See the sun set over beautiful lake Eildon and immerse yourself in nature.

Great camping spot. Would definitely pick this one in summer as the summit has no tree cover.

The view of the stars was awesome, being nice and high up the hill meant amazing views of the lake and stars.

There were hundreds of butterflies around which was lovely.

The campground is a bit rocky, so make sure you pack proper thick pegs.
There’s spots for maybe 6 or so tents to camp flat and more if you don’t mind a bit of a slant.

We went for New Years and we could *just* hear the other campsites music, definitely not close enough / loud enough to bother you at all.

I really enjoyed camping at Michael's site - the view of Lake Eildon from the camp-site is beautiful! The site has a couple of different spots to set up tent and is pretty private - the main road is about 60 or so metres from the camp-site but wasn't very busy and so wasn't an issue. Its about 30 min drive to Mansfield or Yea, if you need extra supplies. Would definitely recommend!

Overall we had a great weekend, site is private, fantastic view & great weather. On the Friday the wind was up and being on the ridge it can rip through quite a bit.

Exactly as described, the view of the lake is amazing. Not a huge amount of flat land, but certainly enough to spread out for 1 family. Almost unlimited wood, and almost no bugs. Great combo. Was nice to be able to close gate and leave camp set up. Far enough from the road that there was only minimal noise. We'll be back.

The entrance down to the campsiteKids didn't hate the view

10/10 views from this camp site overlooking Lake Eildon. Was awesome having so much firewood available too.

Only problem was a locked gate on arrival which we couldn’t unlock with the code. Owner was quick to respond to our texts and luckily we found an alternative way in.

Flying fox lookout summit was our first Hicamp experience and we couldn't be happier. The view is spectacular, there is amazing Aussie wildlife all about (we didn't see any flying foxes, but bluetongues, cockatoos, rosellas, wedgetails were all about). There is plenty of good wood for burning and we had a really relaxing stay. The *only* thing I would say is that the site is close enough the road that 4x4s hooning past distract from the serenity from time-to-time, but all in all we wouldn't hesitate to com back. Thanks Michael!

This property was Amazing. Set on a hilltop, high above Lake Eildon. You were literally in the clouds at morning time. Loved the convenience of being able to lock the gate, leave our stuff and head out to town or go fishing.
Plenty of fallen trees for firewood, but you will need to bring an Axe and chainsaw. The area was nice and clean, absolutely loved the privacy that this place offered. And the view, omg the view. It was fantastic and we all had a blast. We did not get to meet the host, but honestly, that was one of the nice things about it, being the only people there, was one of the main reasons we chose this place. We went with a stock standard Ute and a 13foot caravan, made it up there no worries. However the hilltop is narrow, so turning around required some guidance. And watch out for the blue rock at the entrance, its fairly small and we did miss it and had to turn around.
