Such a great spot I’ll definitely be back during warmer weather to take advantage of the bikes and kayaks and fire drum. Mike was really welcoming and the campsite was easy to find.

I arrived later than anticipated and Mike was lovely and more than accommodating. The campsite is quite literally a stone throw away from the main town/cafes etc but still feels removed and remote. It was idyllic to be be situated between a small wetland/lake, bush and a chook & alpaca enclosure. Would definitely visit again if I'm in the area!

We loved staying at Mike's. It was close to town and the river. The canoes were loads of fun and once the kids found the bmx track there was no stopping them. Band practice was fantastic! If we didn't have little ones we'd have gone the actual show. Thank you so much!

We loved camping at Nowa Nowa Lakeside Farmlet. Mike greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. The sites are well maintained with great views across a lake at sunset.Our niece and nephew enjoyed playing with the hula hoops and feeding the chickens. There was plenty of room to throw a ball for our dog and for the kids to ride their bikes.
A gate off the property made easy access to the water for stand up paddleboarding and kayaking. A short walk leads along a sculpture trail and through a pony club to a little BMX pump track. Easy access to the East Gippsland Rail Trial and a pleasant walk to the Stony Creek Trestle Bridge for anyone looking for a longer walk.

Great location and very close to river - great for kids to fish and kayak. Only 20min drive to Lakes Entrance. Only 3 campsites which is fantastic. Open fire was great and even the dog had a great time. Kayaks and bikes available at the farm - Mike the host was very accommodating. Matt
