Enjoy stunning sunsets from across the Lake with views of the Great Dividing Range in the distance. Located beside Lake Clarendon, visitors can enjoy well-maintained grounds, open area for parking and plenty of shady trees. 

Feeling adventurous? Grab your paddle craft and head out onto the tranquil waters of Lake Clarendon. If fishing's your thing, you're in luck – cast your line from the shore or your trusty paddle craft and reel in the big one. Keep your eyes peeled for our feathered friends, too! With a walking trail right by the dam wall, birdwatching becomes an exciting pastime. Who knows what colourful characters you'll spot flitting about?

And the best part? No need for reservations – just roll on in and grab your camping spot. It's first in, first served, so let the Lockyer Valley adventures begin.
