As this is a volunteer run site, No bookings taken for camping. 

They graciously accept donations for maintenance and are keen to share the wonders of the lake.

However, there are also glamping and quirky accommodation: sleep in a cow or machinery shed, limstone grainstore, shearer’s hut, stable or silo! There is also a shearing shed function room. Book online via their new website.

Make sure you check out the Silo Art Trail when you are out that way!
